We Shipt It! has new owners
A downtown Smithfield business has new owners.
Longtime Smithfield residents Ken and Jane Allen have purchased We Ship It! from Chris and Becky Kinkade.
“We are excited to build upon an already successful business and be part of the downtown Smithfield business community,” Jane Allen said. “Our motto is, ‘Whatever it is, we ship it.’ ”
A full-service packing and shipping store that offers both supplies and services, We Ship It! is able to ship through UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS and freight. The business also offer mailbox rentals and package acceptance, a convenience to customers who need their deliveries to be held when they are unable to receive a delivery themselves.
