Holiday Shipping

Getting closer to the big day – and with that – we have a few reminders for shipping before the holidays.

By now, anyone East of Alberta should be using the Express shipping option for an on time arrival. Express Shipping orders placed by Wednesday at 4:00PM should arrive on time.

In Alberta and anywhere outside Southwest BC we recommend placing your Standard Shipping order today before 4:00 PM. Express Post orders placed by 4:00PM Thursday should arrive on time.

South Coast / Lower Mainland can probably get away with shipping standard right up to Wednesday at 4:00 PM. Anything after that should be Express – just to be sure!

All of these dates are suggestions. Ideally, please place the order as soon as possible to ensure the best chance at on time delivery!

New Products
The past few weeks have been incredibly busy with our Black Friday Sale and the general holiday ramp-up so we haven’t had the opportunity to add much in the way of new things to the site. So, this week we have just one new product to share: the Weller WE1010 Digital Soldering Station. This is Weller’s modern replacement for the incredibly popular WES51, and the perfect addition to any electronics enthusiast’s workbench!
