Closure Notice: September 6, 2021 – Labor Day

By: Melissa Kelley

Sep 1, 2021

Monday, September 6th is Labor Day.     

In observance, Atlas Coffee Importers will be closed. All warehouses in the U.S. and Canada will be closed as well. 

Transit Times 

Please be aware that nationwide freight volumes continue to increase the transit times, and shipments are likely to take much longer than you may be used to. Holiday closures worsen the situation. Please plan ahead and place your order with plenty of extra transit time built in.  

 Lead Times  

Order processing lead times vary by warehouse. Most warehouses can process orders submitted by the deadline for the following business day. However, Dupuy Charleston, Dupuy New Orleans, and Seaforth all require 2 days lead time. Volume surges at any warehouse may increase lead times with limited notice. Holiday closures do not count as part of warehouse lead time.
