What about items which are not "In Stock"?

Items that are not “in stock” generally have a posted backorder timeframe on the item page. For example, you may see an item with a backorder availability of “ships within 1-3 weeks”. In order to calculate your Holiday Order Deadline, you will need to subtract this timeframe (always use the longest number of weeks – in this case 3 weeks) from your in stock order deadline date. This means, if your order deadline for your postal code is Dec 12 and your backorder timeframe is “ships within 1-3 weeks” you’ll need to order by Nov 21.

Missed an order deadline?

Don't worry! We have some great last minute gift-giving ideas:

  1. Send a regular Chapters Indigo Electronic Gift Card. See our Gift Card selection

  2. Shop at one of our retail stores, open late until Dec 24 for those last minute gift emergencies! We recommend checking your item's in-store availability first before visiting a store. Find your nearest store

Please note: Delivery delays may occur as a result of poor weather conditions and holiday parcel volume. There may also be some delivery delays from Dec 25 to Jan 3 due to statutory holidays.
