Department Store Holiday Shipping Deadlines

You know it's the holiday season when you need to walk in the street with taxis to avoid slow-walking tourists. There are few things less appealing than rushing from Saks to Bergdorfs while pedestrian traffic comes to a complete stop.




The hours to take advantage of free shipping is ticking away quickly. Lucky, most New York stores will offer a messenger service for free or a small fee. As a special note, UberRush is a blessing and usually runs between $6 and $12 to have packages picked up and hand delivered throughout much of the city. Store prices tend to range from $15 to $30. Many times, retailers will wave the fee for expensive purchases. It never hurts to ask.
