Don’t believe the big on-line traders – it is still possible to deliver from and to Scotland by Christmas. The big on-line guys use couriers -we use Royal Mail. The couriers use huge central depots which are a still trying to cope with the backlog caused by the weather chaos last week in central Scotland.. Royal Mail are delivering on-time from and to our area in the North East of Scotland.
The big on-line traders also do not know their Scottish geography – we are located in the North East of Scotland – far away chaos in theCentral belt. During last week we were delivering sucessfully to UK customers using Royal Mail and we had more snow!
If I was a cynical chap I might also think that some of those large online traders are either using the weather related problems last week in Central Scotland to ‘encourage’ customers to buy now rather than delay their purchase or, if they have large stores, ‘encourage’ shoppers to purchase in their stores rather than on-line.
We can still accept orders up 22nd to get delivery by the 24th – provided we have the item in stock.
