I tried to shop online at Drs Foster and Smith.On checkout, they added an $82 shipping charge, stating that the extra charge was for shipping outside the continental US and that ground shipping was not available for Alaska.
Alaska is most certainly in the continental US and every other company out there manages to ship via ground using UPS, FedEx, and the USPS.
This company is still operating in the 19th century. Their website is fraudulent on their shipping policy.
It constitutes "bait and switch" advertising.Their shipping charge blatantly contradicts their own stated words in the shipping section of the ordering process.
