Posted on 11/03/2016 by Marketing

Using CollectPlus to send parcels over Easter? Read on for our final sending dates to ensure your parcels are delivered in time.


The last day for sending items to arrive before the Easter holiday period (Friday 25th March – Monday 28th March) will be Tuesday 22nd March for our Standard Service or Saturday 19th March for our Economy service. If you normally choose the Economy Service, we recommend using the Standard Service to get the item delivered quicker.

We will not be collecting items from our stores on Good Friday (25th March), Easter Sunday (27th March) or Easter Monday (28th March).

Most of our stores will continue to accept parcels throughout the Easter holiday period — check in with your local CollectPlus store for their opening hours. However, after Saturday 26th March they will not be picked up by us until normal services resume on Tuesday 29th March.

Returning an item?

You can continue to drop off returns as usual during the Easter holiday period, subject to store opening times, as some stores may be taking an Easter break, too. However, returns parcels will not be collected on Good Friday (25th March), Easter Sunday (27th March) or Easter Monday (28th March).  

Please note the Customer Support opening hours over Easter which are:

Good Friday 0900-1700
Saturday 0800-1200
