I Never Received My Order?
First, be sure you have logged in to your account and checked your order status. If your tracking information indicates that your order has been delivered, please check with everyone in your household and with any neighbors to ensure that they did not accept the package for you. Please also check all areas around your home to ensure that the package was not delivered to you and left in a hidden spot (on the back porch, in the garage, or behind a flower pot, for example). You should also check with your neighbors just in case they are holding on to it for you.
If we are not notified within 2 weeks of the ship date that you did not receive your package we will be unable to help you.

If your order shipped via Economy (USPS), it can take up to 12 days, not including Sundays or Federal Holidays, to be delivered. If it has been over 12 shipping days and your package still has not arrived, please call us at 844-GO-CHICAGO (844-462-4422). We will initiate an investigation with our USPS representative who should be able to locate and deliver the package. If the package has not been located and delivered after 8 business days, we will reship your package via UPS at no cost to you.
We will continue to track your original order and if it is delivered to you, we will issue a call tag via UPS and return it to us.

We will check the weight of a properly packed package against the weight of the package missing the item and compare the two to ensure that the package was missing when it left our warehouse.

If the item was not shipped in your original package, we will ship a replacement immediately using the shipping method from the original order. We will gladly upgrade the shipping if you are willing to pay the difference between the original shipping and expedited shipping.
