Dollar Losing Value is harmful.
Because of a disastrous drop in the Canadian Dollar, our ingredient costs have escalated dramatically. Some key ingredients now cost 30% more than a year ago. By reducing our local overhead and accepting low margins, we have limited price increases and continue to offer quantity discounts online.
Shipping Costs continue to rise. One cost reduction is to use lower cost expedited mail for all shipments. Usually delivery occurs within a week to Canadian cities. Plan ahead and allow up to 10 days for delivery. If faster delivery is really required, please comment in your order and we send you an email with a quote on the higher express cost.
Expedited Mail = lower cost: Delivery time is under 10 days to major cities in Canada. The service is usually reliable. Occasional delivery delays (longer than 10 days) have occurred to rural addresses or when local delivery arrangements are at fault. The estimated shipping costs are shown for each order. Overall, Canada Post performance is excellent; however, occasionally, shipments are delayed but never lost.
Smart Phones, Tablets and PCs
The best computer to use to enjoy our web site and place orders with no difficulty is a PC with a big monitor. The next best are 10" or larger tablets and laptops The worst way to interact with us is to use a smartphone with a small screen. The most frequent emails we receive about difficulty ordering come from smartphone users. We are revising our programming to accommodate mobile users, but accept some limitations. Our pages show reasonably well on our test tablet, a 7" Google Nexus - a 10" screen is better.
