Dear Editor:

Oct. 1, we moved our store Coastal Shipping to 679 Boothbay Road in Edgecomb. Dear friends it is never easy to make a leap of faith like this and we thank you for your support! The first week has been successful beyond my expectations. We truly enjoyed our time at Todd Avenue in Boothbay Harbor. Unfortunately due to reasons beyond our control relocating was our only option to keep the doors open and grow our company. No suitable location was available in the harbor at this time. My hope is that by adding additional open hours and by offering some local pickup/delivery options we will lessen the inconvenience to our fantastic in town customers. We also plan to set up a drop box for FedEx or UPS envelopes at 679 Boothbay Road for your early bird and late evening conveniences.

The move to a location we own will allow us to keep pricing very competitive and not compromise our commitment to service. Stay tuned for increased offerings from Coastal Shipping including freight, mail boxes, and scheduled door-to-door pick up/delivery service. We are also planning regularly scheduled trips into Boothbay with a delivery van next summer for your convenience. Coastal Shipping will of course continue to offer pack and ship services for your treasures from our 679 Boothbay Road Store. At the store you will find an inviting space that showcases Boothbay craftsmanship in our front show room and the same dedication to getting your packages delivered safely and on time from the Coastal Shipping Team.
