Christmas Posting and COVID Update 2020
COVID-19 and Posting Times for Christmas 2020
Throughout the lockdowns and general COVID situation we have not slowed down – even when under-staffed all orders have been leaving within the times stipulated.
However, as Christmas 2020 looms, it is inevitable that with more online shoppers across the whole of the internet, Royal Mail and all couriers are going to struggle with the added workload this year. In addition to this, strict social distancing measures in the work place will mean that our service too will become slower than you have come to expect as we near the big day.
In addition to this, BREXIT will also impact deliveries to Europe as we temporarily suspend accepting orders to all EU countries until the New Year.
With this in mind, if you are shopping with us this Christmas we advise you to place your orders much sooner than usual to avoid disappointment or post-Christmas deliveries. More items than ever this year are stocked in limited numbers too.
We are going to be asking that ALL personal orders (unless you’re a company/school) be placed via our website. Our emails are manned 9-5 weekdays, so if there’s anything urgent you can contact us this way or request that we call you back if the lines are busy.
Recomended LATEST Ordering Dates 2020
- Free Post: 7th December
- Standard Post: 11th December
- Next Day: 15th December - please note, next day isn’t guaranteed at the moment, but will leave us and be sent using a 24 hour service.
Please view our DELIVERY PAGE for our estimated shipping times under normal conditions. Please allow extra time for all options to be on the safe side.
We will continue to dispatch goods until 18th December @ noon – and they should still arrive before Christmas, but we can’t guarantee it whilst everything is so uncertain this year.
We’re asking that all personal purchases are placed online this year if possible. Our lines will be closing for the year on 10th December.
When do we reopen?
As always, the website will be accepting orders all over the holiday, but we will be back shipping out orders on 8th January 2021. Our lines will open at 11am on this date too. Emails that have been received after 12 noon on the 18th December will be answered from 8-13th January 2021.
It’s been a difficult year for all, and we hope that 2021 is much easier in many ways. We thank you for your continued support during 2020, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a much happier New Year.
