Thanks to Our Delegate for Mail Inquiry

Dear Source:
Doing business on St. John is even more challenging, adding extra days to the delivery time. Priority mail from NYC takes from 5 days to 4 weeks. We have stopped using Registered Mail due to the time it takes for delivery. Registered Mail in the States is 5 days coast to coast while Registered Mail in and out of St. John is 3-4 weeks. We are forced to use Express Mail, which is currently $22 per box for shipping, soon to go up on May 12th and to use Inter-island Express from St. Croix.
Our delivery crew and Post Office employees in Cruz Bay are all very helpful and friendly to the extent they can be.
Thank you to our Delegate for calling attention to this problem, again.

Irene Patton
Mongoose Junction/ St. John, V.I.
