Free Shipping Day, which had $942 million in sales last year, has been scheduled for Friday, December 16. According to a press release, Free Shipping Day is poised to meet or surpass its goal of signing up 2,000 merchants that will provide free shipping and delivery by Christmas Eve.
With more than two months to go until Christmas, more than 500 merchants, including Melissa & Doug, RadioShack, Barnes & Noble, J.C. Penney, Macy’s, and Kohl’s, have already signed up to participate. This outpaces the 1,000 merchants that had signed up by December 1 last year. For more information or for retailer sign-up, visit www.freeshippingday.com
