Shopping Early for the Holidays

November 4, 2021

This year, it feels like the holidays are sneaking up on us faster than ever before! Thanksgiving is nearly here, and Christmas is a mere seven weeks away at the time of writing this! Knowing that the days will fly by right before our eyes, we at Book Outlet want to remind you of the importance of shopping early for the holidays to ensure that you get great deals with a stress-free, enjoyable shopping experience.

Inventory Availability

You may have heard that many retailers will be experiencing inventory challenges in the coming weeks and months due to global supply chain shortages. Amazon and Walmart are just two examples of retailers anticipating facing significant supply issues during the holiday season. Fortunately for Book Outlet shoppers, our shelves are fully stocked, and our team is ready to get your holiday gifts to you well in time for Christmas. This being said, we don’t recommend you sit too long on your cart if you have an item you want to purchase that has less than 100+ in stock. Just adding an item to your cart will not reserve the inventory, and with products selling fast during the busy shopping season, we want to make sure you don’t miss out on the thoughtful gifts you’ve spent time picking out for your loved ones.

Shipping Expectations

Now that you’ve spent time filling up your cart, you might be worried about shipping delays. Last year, almost every online retailer experienced lengthy shipping delays during the holiday season due to additional stresses on shipping couriers as well as COVID-19 precautions. This year will be different for us! We want you to know that we anticipate normal delivery timelines during peak season this year, meaning your orders will continue to arrive in a timely manner.

Now, there’s no time like the present – it’s time to start browsing the site to make sure you get the perfect books, puzzles, and activity sets for everyone on your Christmas list! And remember, shopping early on Book Outlet is important to secure the best deals and selection of the season!


Warmest wishes for a safe and happy holiday,

Book Outlet
