Christmas 2013 Delivery Cutoff Dates

Rigu sends out packages every weekday at our local Post Office in the Lake District, usually achieving same-day dispatch on orders placed before 4pm (sometimes up to 4:30pm) and this will not change during the festive period as large numbers of orders are placed at the store.
