GENERAL | DELIVERY UPDATE - MAR 1/2021

Please note we are experiencing up to a 5-10 business day delay on top of the estimated arrival dates indicated below, for all Canada and USA orders. Canada Post's system is extremely delayed with the increased volume of packages and shortage of workers. In addition, packages travelling Internationally are experiencing up to 10-20 business day delays for the same reasons, including extensive time crossing borders. No delivery dates can be guaranteed. We apologize for any and all delays, and appreciate your patience!
