Shopify Fulfillment Network fulfillment operating hours and holidays

Shopify Fulfillment Network (SFN) fulfillment centers typically operate Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm in their local time. SFN fulfillment centers observe statutory holidays that are recognized in their respective locations in Canada and the United States.

There are multiple peak periods throughout the year when every business, service, and carrier work at their full capacity. Peak periods happen around important holidays. Black Friday Cyber Monday (BFCM) is one of the peak periods.

These holidays impact SFN fulfillment center operations, and can cause order fulfillment and delivery delays. Make sure to get familiar with statutory holidays in Canada and United States to prepare your business for holidays and set correct expectations for your customers.
