Black Friday (23rd of November this year) has quickly become one of the busiest dates in the retailing calendar with lots of tempting offers online
However, the downside is that all UK courier companies (including Royal Mail) struggle to keep up with the massive increase in deliveries in the week immediately following Cyber Weekend and there’s a very good chance that many deliveries will be delayed. In fact, last year DPD advised most depots had massive backlogs with a 2-3 day delay to be expected for almost all deliveries and all the alternative couriers we tried had even bigger backlogs!
That's not good news for cake makers who may be relying on supplies arriving for important cake orders
We’re therefore encouraging all our customers to avoid the Black Friday madness by ordering the week before, so we’ve come up with a brilliant idea . . .
This year, Thursday 15th November will therefore be known as Pink Thursday and as an added incentive to place your order just that little bit earlier, we’re offering an EXTRA 5% OFF all orders placed on that day
Just use the discount code ‘PINK’ at checkout when placing your order
Remember, that's an EXTRA 5% OFF our already famously competitive prices and over-and-above any other special offers, bundles, promotions, clearance offers, Trade or Wholesale prices etc
More importantly, planning ahead and ordering on Pink Thursday will help you avoid the inevitable delays that everyone else will be suffering the week after Cyber Weekend.
Because we know there will be delays following Cyber Weekend, the delivery estimates we show at checkout will take this into account. We will be advising customers to allow at least a week for delivery Standard Shipping orders placed over Cyber weekend and we may not even offer the Express Shipping option that week. Whereas if you place your order on Pink Thursday, you'll have it before Black Friday even arrives!
We realise that many cake orders are placed last-minute but, where possible, try to stock up on some essentials a little in advance by ordering on Pink Thursday and you should avoid all the stress and hassle of courier delays caused by Black Friday.
Cake Stuff do not have a Black Friday sale, so don't wait off!
