If you pick up your online purchase in
our store located at 516 Pitt Street, there is no shipping
We process and mail your order within 3
business days to anywhere Canada Post delivers. Shipping speed is
based on Canada Post's Delivery Standards. Depending on destination, after the package is in the mail:
Within Canada, delivery times by
Regular Parcel are up to 12 days, Xpresspost and Priority are 2 to 3
To the United States, delivery times are 2 to 8
To other destinations in the world,
delivery times are 6 to 12 days by air, and 4 to 12 weeks by surface.
Shipping costs are based on actual
rates as issued by Canada Post and depend on the weight and
measurements of your parcel, as well as destination. The default
shipping costs set for different countries are based on a medium
sized book up to 500 grams (or approx. 18 oz.) Your actual
shipping cost may vary. If your book is small or lighter than
average, we will reduce your shipping, or refund a portion of it if
you've already made payment. If you're purchasing a heavier book
(over 500 grams), or book set, we will e-mail you a quote for your
approval, before we ship.
Multiple book orders: Please note that
in some cases, the additional item shipping charge will cause the
total shipping charge to be too high for the actual weight of the
package. We will therefore reduce it to the correct amount when we
process your order.
For books valued over
$100.00 (or if you opt for these on lower value books), tracked shipping, shipping insurance, and signature on delivery may be required and will cost extra.
We will do our best to be fair and
reasonable with each shipment.
When applicable, GST or HST is added to the shipping costs. We add a small charge to Canada Post's rates to cover the cost of the shipping materials.
If you wish to know
the correct shipping costs before purchasing a book, please contact
us at email@example.com to discuss options and prices.
In order to keep shipping costs down,
most books will be shipped by bubble envelope. Expensive or rare
books will be boxed.
