The Link team wants to interview customers who shop online during the holidays.

Shopping around. The Link team is working on a story about how the online shopping boom is helping to drive increases in the package business.

Do you know a customer who plans to do a lot — or maybe all — of his or her holiday shopping online this year? If you do — and if this person is willing to speak to a Link writer for our story — let the team know.

Send an email to and a team member will be in touch.
