To our loyal customers and friends,
Friddle’s Orthopedic Appliances, Inc. would like to say thank you for your continued support and business. Because of each of you Friddle’s has been able to continue to strive and grow in today’s sluggish economy. Thank you.
As many of you know, UPS has increased their rates based on dimensional weight. These changes went into effect January 1, 2015. Due to these UPS changes, Friddle’s is not able to absorb all of these increases and still be competitive in today’s market. In order to stay competitive and to continue to offer fantastic deals and services, Friddle’s will be modifying Free Ground Freight options. These changes will go into effect on May 1, 2015.
As of May 1, 2015
**Friddle’s Orthopedic Appliances, Inc. will now offer a $10 Flat Rate Ground shipping charge for all customers within terms in the continental United States. *IMPORTANT: Only applies to customers who are within terms. This is a $10 total flat rate fee for the order. Order may contain multiple boxes, but flat rate will still be $10.
1) Tri-state customers (includes GA, NC & SC): $250 orders = $10 flat rate
2) All other states: $550 orders = $10 flat rate
