The reality of Christmas is beginning to sink in and a straw poll of our offices says that everyone is leaving things until the last minute (me included). We are lucky enough to have guests staying with us this Christmas and more for the New Year so we have to think catering and presents and we haven’t even ordered the Christmas cards. Normally we don’t have guests for the winter so some bedrooms don’t have central heating and we need to organise gas heaters as well.
So, as we will be shopping on-line for most of our requirements, I’ve just been to look at the calendar and had quite a shock! Allowing for postage within the UK, I reckon that the latest date to buy anything on-line and get it safely shipped to 20 Bond street is 6th December. The last shipment leaving Bond Street will be 15th December to arrive in Marbella for Monday 20th and be at your local Citibox office on Wednesday 22nd.
Last year, loads of people left everything too late and we had an office open especially on Christmas Eve for these customers but this year our offices are already sending out their Christmas closure dates and 22nd December is the last arrival date for the UK Address post and parcels. Of course, FedEx will deliver right up to Friday 24th but please set a couple of days aside before 6th December to make sure that all your on-line shopping is done.
