If you’re looking at ordering some packages around the Fourth of July, you may want to check out FedEx’s delivery hours for the holiday first.
Online shopping nowadays has almost completed replaced going out to the stores and buying products in person, but a big piece of that then falls on delivery companies like FedEx or UPS to get the items to you. When it comes to holidays, that confusing process gets even more difficult.
For the holidays, some will wonder whether or not FedEx will deliver for the Fourth of July, and the simple answer is no. However, it gets even more complicated when you look at the dates around the holiday as well.
If you take a look at FedEx’s holiday schedule for its delivery, there’s no service whatsoever running for the Fourth of July itself. On the day before, which is a Monday, you see modified hours and no FedEx Home Delivery running throughout the day. That makes things more complicated, as weekends tend to get confusing for delivering items as some items will still arrive on Sunday’s and others won’t. With the holiday falling on a Tuesday, it might delay your packages a few more days than expected.
To help out a little bit, the day after the Fourth of July doesn’t get as confusing, and the FedEx break doesn’t last that long. On that Wednesday, everything will return back to full service, and you will hopefully see packages returning to your mailboxes and doorsteps as normal.
However, be sure to plan in advance if you’re looking to ship any grilling supplies, pool floats, or any other holiday party accessories for that Tuesday, and you might want to make sure you’re a whole week early with your order just to be sure nothing gets delayed until after the Fourth of July.
