It Is Not Too Late For Holiday Shopping!

Posted by

The Holidays are coming and will be here before we know it.  If you are like me, I did a bunch of shopping on Black Friday then totally put the rest off until this past weekend when I realized I still needed to get things to ship to family far away. Knowing my shipping days were becoming limited, I ran out and got the last of the gifts so that I could meet UPS, FedEx, and USPS shipping deadlines.  

Tree In A Box will be shipping orders daily to ensure your orders go out timely.  Here is a quick listing of the estimated shipping deadlines from major carriers.
