Christmas 2021 Postage Dates & Opening Hours
With the festive holiday season fast approaching, we understand that it can be a stressful time awaiting orders that have been placed. To help ensure that your gifts arrive before the big day, here are the latest recommended dates for postage from Royal Mail and UPS along with when we'll be open and sending out orders.
Festive Opening Hours:
Between Christmas and New Year (29th, 30th & 31st) we'll be dispatching all orders with Royal Mail shipping only. Our usual cutoff times will not apply over this period as our staff will be working shortened hours. Any orders placed during this time with UPS shipping options will be dispatched on the 4th January 2022.
We'll also be responding to any customer questions via email although there may be a slight delay in responses so please be patient.
