Important BL Holiday Closures Plus Inspiration

Important BL Holiday Closures Plus Inspiration

We’re taking a few days off this season to be with our camera gear and families (probably in that order).

BL IS CLOSED

Thursday, November 24th (Thanksgiving)
Friday, November 25th (Black Friday)
Monday, December 25th (Christmas Day)
Monday, January 1st (New Years Day)

Note that we’re always closed on Sundays.

When you put in an order, the calendar will not let you choose a duration where the return date is on one of these days. Also, you won’t be able to pick up orders from our 2 main headquarters in San Carlos and Waltham.

You may be able to pick up advanced reservations from a UPS Store or local camera shop pickup location but individual pickup location hours may greatly vary so you must check with them first! Here are some closure hours for pickup locations we know about but, again, please call them to verify because they might change things and not tell us.

Note that all of these places are closed Sundays.
