The holidays are creeping ever closer, and we at OWC hope that everyone is ready for a safe, wonderful Thanksgiving! And while spending time with family and friends is a popular Thanksgiving tradition for most, there’s another tradition that many others like to partake in – waiting in long lines for Black Friday deals.
But there’s a much easier way to still get your shopping done early and get your packages in time without leaving the comfort of your home for the discomfort of a cold, hard sidewalk. By shopping online, you can avoid the craziness of maniacal Black Friday shoppers and if you start early enough, just about every retailer offers free or extremely discounted shipping options this time of year.
The emphasis is on starting early – but during the chaos of the holidays, who among us can truthfully say we’re batting 1.000 on that? With so much on our plates (other than turkey), it’s hard to make time to get ahead on shopping.

We are down to five days left to receive deliveries in time for the big day and it is officially crunch time. As we covered in our last post, there’s a lot of information to take into account when shopping for the holidays.
The time to visit malls and shops has passed, here on in it is going to be granny’s throwing elbows and bumper carts! Time to throw on some pj’s and fuzzy socks and hit the interwebs. (A little hot chocolate never hurts either.)
Having five days left to receive deliveries means there’s still five days left to order! There’s still hope and we’re certainly still here to help. Our four big tips still ring true for stress-free online shopping; we just have to pay closer attention to the available shipping options. Here are our tips and the breakdown of still available options: Article Continues…

Happy “Black Friday,” everybody! We hope that all of our customers had a very safe and happy Thanksgiving filled with family, friends, great food and long naps!
All across the country people are doing some serious shopping, be it from the comfort of their own home or bravely wading through the crowds of their favorite retail destinations. Personally, I’m a “sit -at-home-with-a-hot-chocolate-and-some-fuzzy-slippers” kind of shopper. Other than shopping in pure comfort, there are many other benefits to shopping from home this weekend and throughout the holiday season; my favorites include not having to worry about being squished, staying out of the cold (which is officially upon us in our part of the woods), and (my number one benefit) no wasted gas money! I just click, click, click the items I want and watch for the boxes of fun to arrive.
If you start early enough, just about every retailer has free or extremely discounted shipping options this time of year. The emphasis is on starting early, however; I’m sure I’m not the only person who, in the past, has had to wrap up a couple bits of chocolate and an IOU for the gift that didn’t quite make it on time.
Here at OWC, we’re big believers that knowledge is power, so we’ve set up some tips and shipping estimates and deadlines to help make sure you get your order from us on time. After all, holidays are much better spent enjoying quality time with family and friends, rather than stressing over shipping times. Article Continues…

Now, I’m going to warn you right now: I’m not going to sell you anything. I just have a lovely story that I think some of you out there will appreciate and I thought I’d share.
A couple of Fridays ago, I packed up for the night, wished the rest of the team a great weekend and headed for my car. It was beautiful out! I grew up in the deep South, so “beautiful” to me is usually nice and hot, but this afternoon we had received some much-needed rain in the form of some great thunderstorms. By the time I left, the storms had stopped and the temperature was just right. You could still smell the rain in the air, which happens to be one of my most favorite smells. So it’s Friday, it’s beautifully warm but not at all humid and it smells like rain—what a great way to start the weekend!
So I climbed into my little red Jetta, opened the sunroof and all my windows as I usually do, and I started out of the parking lot. Just as I turned out of the lot and onto Bridge Lane right there in front of me was a huge rainbow! You know the ones where you can actually pick out every single color because it’s so bright? Yeah, it was one of those.
Now I have to say that Bridge Lane on an average day is a beautiful view. As you ease up the road heading towards Harding Lane on your left is another company and on your right is a not, yet purchased or developed lot with a sign (which makes me giggle whenever I notice it) that says how many acres and that the oak trees are free. That’s very nice of them to not charge extra, as they line the back of the property, all tall and regal as only an oak tree can be. Article Continues…
