My package says delivered, but it's not here, what do I do?

Our first suggestion is to check the tracking information directly through the USPS or UPS site (using your tracking number), it will say where the package was left, if it was signed for, etc.  Secondly, check with members of your household, perhaps someone picked up your mail for you (check with neighbors too!). Third step, is to check with your postal carrier directly and ask where they left your package. Fourth step is to contact your local post office and consider filing a claim. Nixon Thread Co. is not responsible for lost or stolen mail. Claims must be filed by the customer, however, we are happy to provide any information needed for your claim. If you suspect your package was stolen, you will also need to file a claim with UPS or USPS. We highly suggest having your package shipped where someone is available to sign or physically pick up to avoid any issues.
