Astronomical Shipping Charges
I love Levain Bakery. I thought some Levain cookies would be the perfect b-day present for our son at college. As we no longer live in NYC, I checked on line. Eight cookies for $44.00 -- $66.00 if you want a custom mix -- and shipping for $45.00??? A grand total of $90.00 for 8 cookies. A little outrageous, I think. Even UPS puts a disclaimer on the site saying the rate includes an additional charge by the company. Sorry, Levain, my son will be just as happy with other cookies.
