Shipping & Returns
IMPORTANT SHIPPING UPDATE (Updated Feb 2022!) Shipments continue to see big delays due to the impact of COVID 19 and the massive increase in packages as more people shop online due to stay and work from home advisories. We are also now seeing delays due to the recent truckers protests at many of the border crossings. this is having a roll on effect to transit times. USPS have posted that they are receiving unprecedented package levels are further slowed down due to the pandemic safety protocols and staff shortages. In addition the main Canada Post sorting office in Mississauga which all our international orders are routed through have been impacted by a recent outbreak of Covid-19. They have temporarily closed one of their shifts and have adopted in-house Covid-19 testing for all employees. At this time we are unable to estimate how long a package will take to be delivered as they seem to be moving very slowly between each logistic depot. All shippers have posted delivery time delays, and all on-time delivery guarantees have been suspended by most shippers. Some of these delays we are seeing are quite extended, so please be patient as our most valued front line delivery workers are on overload at this time! No guarantees on shipping times can be offered until further notice.
