Exciting news for on-line shoppers like me (and if you aren’t shopping online for holiday gifts you should start – no line ups, no searching for a parking space, no hiring a sitter so you can holiday shop). Canada Post has launched Delivered Tonight – and one of its partners is Mastermind Toys (one of my fav. Canadian online retailers). Delivered Tonight is going to make holiday shopping so much easier!
Basically, Canada Post has partnered with some certain Canadian retailers (Mastermind Toys, Indigo, Best Buy/Future Shop and more) offering same day delivery service to select customers within the Greater Toronto Area. The cut off times for delivery vary between retailers. The price varies for each retailer and is up to the retailer to set (yes, some are offering it FREE).
Imagine…you order Stocking Stuffers from Mastermind Toys before noon today and it gets delivered by 9pm tonight. I would so use this service…wouldn’t you?!
This pilot project from Canada Post runs until end-of-shopping-season.
Personally, Canada Post is my preferred mailing option. Why? Because I really hate missing a package and I really appreciate the “Pick up at postal outlet” notice on my door rather than the “We missed you…now haul it over to our warehouse…with your toddler…in the snow…to pick it up your package” (ok – I’m paraphrasing there). My postal outlet is in my neighbourhood. The hours are friendly to my busy schedule. I know Canada Post will take care of my packages.
So share!…what’s on your little one’s Holiday Wish List?
