WE ARE NOW SHIPPING US ORDERS FROM THE USA!
We are very excited to announce that we are now shipping US-bound orders from Washington State via USPS to save on both shipping time and more importantly shipping costs for our customers.
Our staff have been working on the logistics of making this a reality for the past few months and we have been evaluating and testing this change in practice for a few weeks and have now started shipping most* US orders from Washington state. Compared to cross-border shipping from Canada we are seeing reductions in shipping costs from 25-75 percent and reductions of shipping times down to only a few days. We generally ship from the US one or two times a week so while your order may take a day or two longer to ship, it will arrive much faster.
NOW AVAILABLE: We are just putting the last pieces in place to allow our systems to bill US and (on request) International customers in US DOLLARS.
Thank you to all our valued customers for your suggestions, feedback, and patronage that has helped us make improvements like these a reality.
* A small number of US orders may still be shipped from our store in Canada if our shipping staff determine there are minimal differences in shipping cost and delivery time between shipping from Washington State or Canada. This is may be due to the type of shipping needed, insurance requirements, or shipment size/value.
