- "I ordered two items from http://alloy.com on 2/1. The order did not get shipped until 2/6. I work at a on line retail and it does not take that long to ship something out. Most on line retail ship on the next business day but alloy took five business days. They tell me the shipment will arrive no longer than 2/20 which is still about 2-3 weeks since the day i ordered the goods. It shouldn't take a month to get your items. This is horrible. Most places arrives within a week."
