Holiday Shipping Cut-Off Dates for 2018


EuropeanGroceryStore.com knows how important it is that your packages (and gifts) arrive on time.  We work hard to make sure everything is turned around as fast as possible.  We still ship as fast as always over the holidays and most orders are processed and shipped the same day (if placed prior to the 6pm eastern time cut-off).  Carriers like USPS, FedEx, and UPS are dealing with much higher volumes than normal and that can lead to unexpected delays and longer transit times.  There can also be unforeseen delays due to weather and/or human error (hopefully not!).  As always please give us a call if you have any questions.

Here are the  recommended Holiday Shipping cut-off dates for Christmas arrival 2018.
