Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the land, thousands of unprepared shoppers scrambled around.

If this sounds familiar, worry not. Halfords has hundreds of gift ideas not only in store but online too. What’s more, customers on Christmas Eve can reserve their gifts online and can collect in store an hour after reservation. *

With over 80 per cent of stores based on retail parks outside the city centre, crowded parking lots, long lines at checkouts and frantic shoppers is something that can be avoided.

For standard home delivery, last chance to order online is midnight on Monday 19thDecember 2011.

For next day delivery, all orders must be placed by 1pm on Wednesday 21st December 2011**

Plus don’t forget, if the weather takes a turn for the worst or you are travelling long distances over Christmas, Halfords is also open for business to help you motor on through the winter. From deicer, to screenwash, snow shovels, car batteries, and much more, don’t get left out in the cold. Visit one of Halfords 467 stores.
