Logistics & Practicalities around Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving falls on a Thursday, but many families will celebrate on Friday or over the weekend due to work & school commitments (unlike in America, where there is a holiday). 

Please let The English Grocer know when you would like to receive your order so that there is plenty of time to prepare your feast!

Plan with your friends or your family 

If you can't make it home this thanksgiving, why not throw a "friendsgiving" party to celebrate this tradition with your friends, co-workers and take this opportunity to invite those who may be alone this Thanksgiving!
