A Downtown Smithfield shipping business is now under new management. We Ship It!, which has been in operation since 2006, has been purchased by longtime Smithfield residents, Ken and Jane Allen, from Becky and Chris Kinkade.
“We are excited to build upon an already successful business and be part of the Downtown Smithfield business community,” stated Jane Allen. “Our motto is, ‘Whatever it is, we ship it!’”
The Allen family, including sons Thomas and Timothy, will continue to provide the services offered by the previous owners. A full service packing and shipping store, offering both supplies and services, We Ship It! is able to ship through UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS, and freight. They also offer mailbox rentals and package acceptance, a convenience to customers who need their deliveries to be held when they may not be able to receive a delivery themselves. We Ship It! offers several other complimentary products and services to its customers, including gifts and a large selection of greeting cards.
“We are so happy that the Allens have chosen to invest in Downtown Smithfield,” stated Sarah Edwards, Executive Director of the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation. “With a convenient location, especially for the many downtown workers, We Ship It! provides a much needed service.”
