Holiday ordering & deadlines

by Tyler Vitt - Wednesday, Nov 19, 2014 at 4:59pm

Happy holidays!

The holiday deadlines for special ordering books are approaching. As a rule of thumb, we consider December 10th as the last date when we can order a book and have it arrive before Christmas.

We will still gladly take orders after this date, but we cannot guarantee they will arrive before Christmas.

Nevertheless, we strongly encourage you to get in touch with us soon as possible to specially order books you intend to give as gifts. Some publishers take longer to ship, and weather is always a concern this time of year.

Please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore if you have any questions, or if you'd like to place an order over the phone. Once we know what book you're looking for and where it's coming from, we can give you an estimate of when it should arrive.
