Stock Center logo

The BDSC's shipping schedule for the end of 2015 is detailed below. Ordering deadlines for receiving stocks in 2015 depend on your account type, which is shown in the top section of a stock order form, and your shipment method. Because of the high rate of cold weather shipment loss we may limit December and January shipments to 100 stocks each, so please plan ahead. If you need a large number of stocks this winter we encourage you to order in time for November shipment. Stocks ordered for shipment in December, January and February are much more likely to die in transit than those ordered other times of year. Please avoid winter stock orders altogether if you can.

Please note the following deadlines and shipment dates if you plan to order stocks in December:

  • Order deadlines for APSingle and POSingle accounts
    • Wednesday, December 2, midnight EST is the deadline for placing orders to be shipped outside the USA via the postal service.
