Civic Holiday 2021

The Civic Holiday is almost here! We want to prepare you so you can focus on relaxation instead of shipping during your holiday. Read up on our hours of operation for the upcoming midsummer long weekend.

This year the Civic Holiday falls on Monday, August 2, 2021. Don’t forget to plan ahead and advise your customers of any possible delays.
