FAQ

Shipping

When will my order ship?


newburycomics.com generally ships all in stock product within 2-3 business days upon receipt of the order. During periods of high order volume this may be increased. Orders placed after 6AM (EST) will not be processed until the following business day. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are not considered business days. If an order is placed that includes an item not currently in stock, we generally hold the entire order until that item becomes available.

Your order may be shipped in two separate shipments depending on the availability of the items in your order.

Any order for an item that is not yet available from the record label or distributor will be shipped when the item is released.

newburycomics.com ships pre-ordered product for arrival as close to the release date as is possible. Due to ongoing industry-wide issues with distribution, there may be delays in the shipment of some pre-ordered product. Pre-ordered product is not guaranteed to arrive on the release date.

For insurance and security purposes, domestic orders exceeding a product total of $200.00 will be shipped with USPS Signature Confirmation.

We will not open sealed LPs before shipping as, once opened, they can no longer be sold as new if the product is returned. All of our records are shipped in a sturdy, padded vinyl mailer.

All packages ship from Brighton, Massachusetts.
