For 2020 there will be extended transit times, due to the pandemic and overloaded shipping carriers. Please order 2-3 days earlier than you normally would to allow enough time to compensate for extended transit times this Holiday season.
As the Holidays quickly approach it is important to know when to order to keep your business running smoothly through the Holidays. With Ecommerce sales up half a trillion over last year, many of the shipping carriers have added a day in transit time to make up for the surge in packages.
