Keep holiday shopping and shipping simple

by | Jan 1, 2024 | Finance and Business, Home and Living

There’s no denying it’s been a tough year for many of us. And with rising costs, we’re feeling a pinch in our wallets. But, with the holidays upon us, many Canadians are still looking forward to celebrating the season.

In fact, according to a recent survey, 84 per cent of us are feeling the holiday spirit as much or more than we did last year and, for the majority, it’s our most cherished time of the year.

Whether you are being more frugal or generous this year, you might be ordering gifts online or from local stores to spread holiday cheer.

Just remember, if you’re shipping these gifts to friends and family, make sure to send your packages early enough so they arrive on time for the festivities.

If you’re shipping with Purolator, you can find their send-by cut-off dates – as well as 24/7 self-serve locations, packing tips and holiday offers – online at purolator.com/holidays
