Thanksgiving 2013 Holiday Closure
Life Technologies’ US operations will be observing a nationwide vacation period from November 25–29, 2013, when a majority of our US offices will be closed in observation of the Thanksgiving holiday period.
In general, please expect delays for US orders placed after 3pm ET on Tuesday, November 26. We will resume our normal US shipment schedule on Monday, December 2.
Our Canadian operations will remain open during that week. Canadian customers can order on the web and will not experience delays for certain products stocked in our Burlington distribution center. However, there may be instances when products are not available out of the Burlington distribution center, so Canadian customers should plan accordingly.
