UPS will take it to a local Access Point which is likely to be a convenience store (at least here in the UK).
In regards to to delivery date, was the ETA listed correctly when you placed the order? I am in the same boat as you are but might be worse as I might need the laptop to deliver some services for a client. However I won't blame anyone as it's still within the quoted ETA when I placed the order.

Problem for me is: I had planned on receiving this in May prior to a business trip on June 1st. Since the arrival time is now while I'm away, will the product be sent to a UPS store or left on my porch (hope not)?
In my experience Lenovo always ships "direct signature required" so it won't be left on your porch.
If you sign up for a free UPS My Choice account you can easily redirect a shipment to a UPS store in advance once you have a tracking number - without having to wait for a delivery to fail first.

I reiterate my feedback once again that Lenovo should provide customers the option of selecting other courier companies as UPS may not be the best choice for some.

They should provide options for courier.
But more importantly, they should hire more techs to work on the custom builds or find some way to streamline the process without sacrificing quality. I'd pay more for that.

Hey folks thought I'd jump into the fray as well, also a victim of this silly shipping/delivery date switch-a-roo...
Ordered my X1C6 on May 4th with shipping originally scheduled to be this Monday, May 14th and Delivery the following day May 15th, but as of yesterday I'm now looking blankly at Shipping of June 4th and Delivery June 12th.
I'm on the fence whether I ought to cancel the order or wait...that long. As noted earlier thankfully I'm also not in a rush to get it (still got my functioning P50). Ordered top spec 20KH002HUS.
I'm praying to the Lenovo God that this changes again to an earlier date after the weekend is up.

FYI a nicely configured X1 Carbon 6th Gen is currently selling at Costco... On sale $100 off for 2 more days. I think $1499 after the $100 off, for members. They're at some warehouses too.
