Anyone knows anything about the workers strike in France?

I placed and order online last week, usually it comes in 5 - 6 days. Yesterday I got an email about a workers strike and that my order will be delayed until further notice.
This is such bad timing! It's been almost a week and my order has not even been processed yet! I really need the clothing for my kids for Yom Tov.

Can you go to a local store? Order from amazon? Sorry, that's really frustrating. I also made an order for yt and I'm really hoping it arrives in time.

Of course I can but it'll be at least 3x the price! No kidding.
Shabbos shoes with promotion under $30. Shabbos shoes locally min $100 more like $110-120.
my kid doesn't fit well with target and other cheap shoes. They strech and become slides in 2 wears. Verbaudet had really pretty ones and theirs fit ok.

I ordered some really pretty dresses for $28. Locally, the ones I liked we're minimum $108 + tax. Of course there are cheaper options ($75 range) but I really really don't like them. Confused

I made several orders from France in the past two weeks. They all arrived within three days. Currently expecting a shipment this week - it was shipped out today. What courier are they using for your orders?

I don’t know why your order is affected specially. Have you tried reaching out to the stores customer service? I’ve had good experiences with customer services there - better than the US.

I got an email saying it's delayed due to strike. Go figure. But I'll try emailing customer service. Thank you.

Ok I emailed them. It's now 6 am so they don't open for another few hours. I really hope I get it in time.

so I just got an email that it shipped. YAY. I hope the clothing sizes are right and they fit ok. it's supposed to arrive on friday. BH!

I went out today to shop. The stores were out of sizes, there was little help and the shops were swarming with too many humans... ugh. I ended up coming home with literally nothing. I'm really hoping the dresses fit!
