Places like the larger fashion retailer stores have warehouses around the country and the shoes are shipping using the closest warehouse and the least expensive way possible. In this case the shipping may actually be minimum, it will not eat into seller's profit.

To avoid legal problems resulting from the destruction of documents, a document retention policy must be routinely followed and diligently maintained. All employees must know what to do with their documents and how to eliminate unnecessary documents. Likewise, all supervisors must clearly state and remind their employees of how the policy works. These techniques will ensure that a properly designed policy will be consistently applied.
