Christmas at Pallant Bookshop and Last Postage Dates

Christmas Delivery Times

We are a small team in an independent shop and we are receiving a fantastic amount of orders (thank you!).

However, due to planned CWU strikes, we are expecting delays to all deliveries during December, so we are encouraging all our customers to plan ahead and place their Christmas orders early.

In light of these strikes and the impact we expect them to have on deliveries, our last order date for UK delivery in time for Christmas is

by 4pm, Thursday 8th December 

It is likely orders placed in the week after this date will arrive in time for the big day, but we won’t be able to guarantee it, so if you are ordering after this date and need it in time for Christmas, please contact us before placing the order and we will let you know if it will reach you in time. (The shop is very busy at the moment so we may not always be able to answer your call. Please send us an email and we will get back to you asap).
