Shipping Update

London Fields ShoppeEverybody has been talking about the upcoming Canada Post strike and according to local media, it sounds like a strike has been confirmed to start on Wednesday, July 6th. This means that Canada Post will not operate, deliver or accept new items during this strike and any packages sent this week, may not be processed if the service is shut. For small businesses that rely on online orders, this can be quite frustrating. We have spent the past few days researching the best shipping options and are happy to announce that it will be business as usual during this postal strike.

All US orders received will be sent via USPS and all Canadian and International orders will be sent via a private courier. For those that live locally, we always offer free in-store pick up on all online purchases. If you have any questions or would like to request a shipping quote to your specific location, please do not hesitate to contact us at anytime.
