Chuseok – Korean Thanksgiving (Hours of Operation)

Chuseok (추석) is the longest holiday in Korea. It is literally almost 10 days long if you include the extra days. So here is more important information about the availability of flowers and delivery from September 28th – October 12th. Though Chuseok is from October 2nd – October 9th, there are extra days that are off and packaged deliveries will be backed up over the holiday, so it can take longer depending on the delivery location and what you send. Also, please keep in mind that all dates and time is on Korean Standard Time:

1) There will be no set store hours from October 3rd – October 5th. 

2) No deliveries will be made from October 4th – October 5th. Even pre-orders will not be delivered from October 4th – October 5th.

3) Flower orders with a desired delivery date of October 1st, 2nd, 3rd should be made in advance, as we will get our last batch of flowers on September 30th. Orders made after September 30th may or may no be fulfilled, depending on what we have on stock.  

4) Deliveries will only be made in Seoul, Gyeongido, and Incheon from September  29th – October 10th.

5) For orders that do not include a flower/cake/basket, the last order we can accept until after the holidays is on September 28th before 2pm, which will be delivered some time on either the 29th or 30th. But if you include a flowers/cakes/baskets, we can make deliveries for October 1st-3rd (if we have stock) and from 5th-10th for flowers/cakes/baskets 

6) Deliveries that do no include a flower with a desired delivery date of October 11th – 13th may be delayed due to the pile up of deliveries. If there is a flower/plant/cake included in the order, then we can match the day/time no problem. Delivery schedules in Korea will go back to normal by about the 13th. And this is for all of Korea, not just for Flower Gift Korea.
