Sales Tax

Campus Emporium charges 5.3% sales tax on all orders shipped within Virginia, which is calculated based on our location in accordance with 2017 tax law. Virginia sales tax also applies to orders picked up in the store.


Shipping Policies

Orders received before 3:00pm EST Monday-Friday (including "In-Store Pickup") are usually processed the same day. Orders received after this time or during a high-volume period will be processed the next business day.

Holiday Shipping Deadline: In order to receive your order by Christmas, the Priority Mail shipping cutoff date is Monday, December 18th at 3pm for orders shipping to the continental United States. We will do our best to get your order out as quickly and efficiently as possible. Please note that we are not responsible for delays caused by the USPS postal system. You may order after this date and time, but you may not receive your order by the Christmas holiday.

Campus Emporium ships via the United States Postal Service (USPS) and the United Parcel Service (UPS).  You will receive a tracking number for any completed order to allow you to track your package on its way to you.  Please note that USPS does not run on Sundays or National Holidays, and UPS does not run on weekends or corporate holidays, even if 2nd Day Air or Next Day Air is selected.

We can ship orders to Hawaii and Alaska.  We do not ship to other countries/territories.

We can ship orders to APO or FPS boxes.  These orders are shipped via United States Postal Service, but may not be trackable.  Shipping to APO or FPS boxes does not qualify for promotional shipping rates.

Campus Emporium cannot be held responsible for missing packages shipped by the USPS and marked as "Delivered" confirmed by GPS tracking.  If a package has been marked as "Delivered" and cannot be located, we recommend that you contact your local postmaster to report a missing or stolen package.

If you are unable to locate a package delivered by UPS, please contact us as soon as possible so that we may file a claim with UPS.  Claims with UPS take up to 8 business days to conclude.  If UPS is unable to verify the location of the package following their investigation, we will ship you a replacement package free of charge (pending availability of the missing items).  Any items unable to be replaced will be refunded in full.

If a package is unable to be delivered due to an incomplete or incorrect address entered by the customer, the customer may be charged a $20 redirect fee, as Campus Emporium is charged this amount (or more) by our shipping carriers for such errors. Please check your address before and after submitting your order. Call us immediately to make any necessary corrections.

If the item(s) you have selected are out of stock or if more information is needed to process your order, you will receive an email from and a phone call. Please be sure that you have provided a current email address that you check regularly. Orders are subject to delay until we receive any needed information.
