Christmas Post Deadlines 2016

Tuesday, 13 December 2016  |  Admin

Thanks for your Christmas orders so far!  We're delighted to say that we're keeping up to date on website orders and everything is still being dispatched within 24-48 hours.  But the Royal Mail's Christmas posting deadlines are rapidly approaching. So our last posting dates for 2016 are:


2nd Class - our Standard Service (this covers orders with free postage included)

The Royal Mail deadline is 20th December, so your order must be placed by: 12.00pm on Friday 16th December 2016.

1st Class - our Priority Service  (extra charge)

The Royal Mail deadline is 21st December so your order must be placed by midnight on Sunday 18th December 2016.

Courier service  (extra charge)

Deadline is 22nd December so your order must be placed by 12pm Tuesday 20th December 2016.


After this, we will continue to send out parcels until we close for Christmas, but Royal Mail and courier deliveries cannot be guaranteed to arrive once the final postal dates have passed. 


Our Ruskin Glass Centre shop will be open until 4.00pm on Friday 23rd December 2016, and then we'll be taking our extended Christmas break. 

Website orders will begin to be processed (in date order) from Thursday 5th January 2017.

Our Ruskin Glass Centre shop will re-open again on Saturday 14th January 2017 at 10am.
