The year 4712 is fast approaching. That's the Chinese New Year and the celebration begins 31 January 2014. It is the year of the horse, and those born in the year of the horse are considered to be cheerful and skillful with money.
For the Chinese, the holiday is one in which to reunite with loved ones and family and to share meals, gifts and conversation. For American retailers, it can be a time of frustration as they await products produced in China. It is always best to place your retail packaging requirements now in order to avoid delays later.
The holiday concludes 15 days later with the Lantern Festival. Giddy up and order your shopping bags and boxes before they become part of a backlog that may not ship until March.
