“We’re on track,” Norman said. “We’re going to do everything possible as long as we can.”

All companies have echoed the safety of their employees comes first and if there is a delay, it will arrive as soon as possible.

Shoppers WGN spoke with said they understand the fate of their packages is out of their control and if they’re late, they said they’ll still have a merry time.
