Impending Canada Post Workers Strike
Canada Post workers are set to potentially go on strike early July *- I think I've heard July 2nd, but what do I know. This is bad news for me because I've recently ordered a watering can in the shape of an elephant (the water comes out of its trunk!) for Caleb. It's shipping from the US and due to arrive mid-July, which might be right in the middle of the strike. Jon told me to just go with the generic watering cans - no rain spout, long delivery time from the US, potentially very, very long delivery time, cost 3x as much as a regular one for an adult - but as soon as I saw the elephant... But I'm sure the real question for most of you is how will this strike affect our outgoing shipments? The short answer is we're not too sure yet. We're busy trying to keep everything crossed that there won't even be a strike! However, we've been busy looking at other carriers just in case. We're hoping to keep things moving along the best we can! Here are a few things to keep in mind:
- Other carriers may not be able to ship to rural destinations, or it may be completely exorbitant, and we may not be able to sustain the cost of that. In either case, we'll let you know what's going on and see what we can do.
- Some other carriers also cannot ship to PO boxes.
