There are many advantages to living in Alaska, such as the supportive community and being surrounded by nature. However, one downside is how shipping to Alaska works (or rather, doesn’t work) when having an order sent from the lower 48.
For example, if you live in Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, or any other U.S. territory outside of the contiguous states and have ever tried to order something from Pier 1 Imports- which only ships domestically to those within the contiguous states- then you understand our frustration.
We felt that enough was enough, so we decided to take action. Now, with MyConnect, you can have your packages from Pier 1 forwarded to a package pick-up terminal in Alaska that’s conveniently located for you to pick up.
Wait, Pier 1 Doesn’t Ship to Alaska?
It’s understandable that many well-known retailers, such as Pier 1, don’t offer shipping to Alaska. Alaska is both large and located far from the lower 48, making it less practical and more expensive than other areas in the contiguous United States. Furthermore, many regions within Alaska are difficult to access by land or sea transport methods, making it an impractical option for shipping purposes.
But at Carlile, we understand how important it is for the people of Alaska to be able to get the products they need and want, which is why we’ve made it our mission to get those products here.
Did you know that Carlile has a retail package forwarding program called MyConnect? With it, we can ship packages to customers in Alaska from retailers who don’t typically ship here.
Here’s how it works:
- You shop at Pier 1 like normal, adding the items you want to your cart and checking out as usual.
- At checkout, you’ll enter our Tacoma shipping terminal‘s information and have your order sent there.
- Once your Pier 1 order is shipped to the Tacoma terminal, we’ll pick it up and transport it to a Carlile terminal in Alaska where you can then pick it up at your convenience.
The great thing about using MyConnect to ship Pier 1 orders is that it works for just about anything that Pier 1 sells. So, whether you’re looking to have a small item like a pillow or large furniture piece like a couch shipped, we can handle it.
Here are some examples of Pier 1 items shipped to Alaska using MyConnect:
- Home Decor
At Carlile, we understand the disappointment when you can’t ship Pier 1 orders to Alaska – which is precisely why MyConnect was created. With this program, your Pier 1 orders will be delivered straight to our terminals in Alaska flush with excitement (on your part) and satisfaction (on ours).
Being the top pick for shipping in Alaska, we make it our priority to guarantee that the people living here enjoy the same availability with online shopping as people residing in America’s other states. So whether you need a new mattress or just some bite-sized items, Carlile will get them to you promptly.
