Make Sure Your Holiday Packages Don't Get Nabbed by the Grinch

Several Virginia-Highland area merchants allow residents to have packages delivered to their businesses.


John Wolfinger, who compiles the VaHi Safety Team Report, shared information about this free package delivery service in a recent email to neighborhood residents:

"For those of you who are new to VaHi and nearby neighborhoods - we have a terrific free service from local businesses to insure that packages sent to you actually reach you.  You can have deliveries sent to Intown Hardware, Morningside Wine and Crystal, CityStorage or Urban Body, so they will not sit unattended on your front porch - visit any of these friendly community-minded merchants to sign up for this program.  Most of them also call you when you have a package to be picked up.  Then, just remember to alert the folks who will be sending you holiday gifts that you have a safe address for them to send packages to.  We have virtually eliminated front doorstep thefts in VaHi thanx to this program.  Don't risk losing the fruitcake from Aunt Ruth by not using this safe address program."

I recently lost a package. I guess it was my fault I kept it on my neighbors porch to long, but still very disappointing.
