Shrub Holiday Hours Review

Shrub Holiday Hours Review

(12/23/13)

Hey everybody, just wanted to review for you our Holiday Schedule. While our shopping cart never closes, all of us "behind the scenes" folks do take a break now and again.

Our offices will be closed:
- December 23, 24, 25, 31
- January 1.

You are welcome to place orders during this time, but there will be no shipping or walk-in pickups on these particular days. There will be a slight delay on processing orders placed on the "closed" dates, so thank you in advance for your patience. Please feel free to email us if there are any questions.

thanks so very much for everything! Happy Holidays!
