Holiday Shipping Blackout Dates for 2018

Holiday Shipping Blackout Dates for 2018

Holidays are a great time for everyone, including our shipping partners, to catch up with their families, friends, or just take a break from it all :)

However they also impose restrictions on shipping that need to be accounted for in advance. 

To avoid spoilage in transit we only ship when a shipment will not be interrupted by a holiday as the conditions are too variable.
