Notes for Christmas and New Years Eve delivery:

Planning lobster events at Christmas is fun to do.
But this year, Saturday, 23 December, is FedEx’s last delivery day before Christmas, which is on a Monday. Live lobsters may not last until Monday’s Christmas Dinner. Click here for shipping advice.

If FedEx delivers to your Zip Code on Saturday, you have two good options:
• (1) on Saturday, blanch lobsters for Christmas Day

• (2) on Sunday, cook ’em up; it’s Christmas Eve!

If FedEx DOES NOT deliver to your Zip Code on Saturday, here is a good option:
• (3) order frozen lobster tails delivered any weekday; enjoy them on Winter Solstice, or Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day, or New Year’s Eve, whenever.

Reading the calendar:

•  RED dates are Saturdays, for which FedEx may not deliver to your zip code. Some zip codes get no Saturday deliveries. Give us a call (800-949-1944) if you are not sure FedEx delivers to your address on Saturdays.
•  BLUE dates are normal delivery dates. When you order or call us by noon you can get delivery as early as the next day. You can schedule for next week, or next month, too.

•  GRAY dates are, of course, dates FedEx does not deliver our priority over-night packages, simply because they do not pick-up priority over-night packages on the day before.

Lobster Delivery: Much about entertaining at home with fresh Maine lobster has to do with “just-in-time” delivery. So, the color coded planning calendar above can be helpful when considering your event schedules.

This month you may want to host a lobster party on a Sunday or a Monday. That requires some extra planning. If you are considering either of those Event Days, maximize your “just-in-time” lobster delivery workarounds by checking this information: ★ on Blanching Lobster.

Lobster Delivery Notices: You receive tracking number notice when we pack and label your packages on the afternoon before the delivery date you requested. The notice includes an estimated time of arrival for your package. Always handy to know.

Also, we send you a “delivery made” notice the minute your package arrives at its destination. A supporting feature when you send a box of lobsters to your home address and you are at work. Or, if you send lobster as a gift to friends or family members you’ll always know when they received your unforgettable gift.
