Ordering date changes for the holiday period 2016

The holiday period will soon be upon us! This means our ordering dates for non-stock items will change slightly during this time.

To assist in your planning, here is a list of last ordering dates and our office closure. We wouldn’t want you to miss a cut-off date for ordering! Our popular products are kept in stock and available from our warehouse for next day deliveries.

Towards the end of year holiday season, international shipping schedules tend to become less reliable and therefore our concern is to ensure safe delivery of your products at this busy time and before our annual closure.

Our orders to our international suppliers will resume on 10th January 2017.
