POST / DELIVERIES ... CHRISTMAS.
Already posted this last week but a quick refresh is in order.
Royal Mail - important postal dates.
FIRST off, post is already rather slower than usual. So as with the festive season that 3-5 day guideline we recommend during normal times (UK, longer everywhere else), unfortunately goes out the window, its difficult to place an exact time and it's out of our hands too, all we can do is process and post sales as they come in, so please bear that in mind. You shouldn't have to wait too long for parcels but if you do, you know why...it's Christmas.
UPDATE: As per each year we start to get a bunch of emails chasing up orders. Unfortunately we're just so stupidly busy this time of year that we can't reply to these emails unless they've passed a period of at least 12 working days. Might sound strange but things take a lot longer this time of year, we work until daft o'clock and we get things out sharpish but the post office are backed right up, yeah it might be frustrating but it's how it is at Christmas. Things will take longer to arrive that's an absolute given as above so please bear this in mind and please allow longer for your orders to arrive 99.9% of the time is all you need to do and it'll be with you.
Cut off date for recorded mail this Christmas (for UK) is Friday 19th December. Which means that's the last time we'll be posting anything out pre-Xmas.
Overseas - Canada, Greece and Eastern Europe is the 9th December.
Western Europe, USA and (Static) BFPO addresses is the 12th December.
This is what we're bound by, them's the rules of the postal serivce so anything else is completely out of our hands so once again please bear this in mind. ALSO please remember overseas customers, you don't get a tracking number unless you pay the extra costs for one on the store. Many thanks. TC
