Shipping Policy

Announcement from our Owners:

As the pandemic continues to shift how we work, we ask for your patience and kindness as our team works safely to process your orders as quickly as possible. 

As a result of significant price increases from couriers and our suppliers, we have adjusted our free shipping policy to a minimum spend of $149 CAD (before taxes).  We appreciate your understanding, as our main effort is to always keep our product prices low. Please see below for some restrictions which apply to this policy. 

Please note that shipping delivery times are no longer guaranteed as our couriers #1 mission is to deliver parcels safely, without overburdening their team. This may take a little bit more time than usual, and is difficult for our team to control as lockdowns and standards are shifting weekly from province to province.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.  

Any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to our team:
