Here’s your one-stop source for everything you need to know about Christmas at Organico this year. Opening hours, shipping deadlines, pre-order Christmas dinner foods, gift guides...it’s all here!
1. Online orders before Christmas
An Post, our shipping service, have said they expect shipments to take longer than usual from now through the Christmas period. We’ll do everything we can to get your order out as soon as possible, and we know An Post will work hard to do the same. Our advice is to order the presents, nice foods, and supplements you’d like to have over Christmas early, and to expect shipping to take an extra few days.
Our cut-off date for delivery before Christmas is 15th December, but we’ll continue sending out orders right up to the 23rd. We just wouldn’t want to promise that an order placed after the 15th will arrive before Christmas when there are so many factors at play during this season.
We have also stopped shipping bread and chilled foods as the extra time delivery might take will affect the quality of these items. Normal service will resume after January the 2nd!
Do feel free to email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to ask any specific questions.
2. Opening Hours over the Christmas Holidays

The shop will be open on Friday the 27th, Saturday the 28th, Monday the 30th and Tuesday the 31st.
We'll be closed Wednesday the 1st of January then open again as usual on Thursday the 2nd.
