No mail delivery to Canada, USPS not accepting mail to Canada

Canada Post LockoutAs of Saturday, June 18th at 11:59PM (CST), the USPS has stopped accepting mail destined for Canada.  The strike and total lockout has shut down the Canada Post delivery service.  As a result of this strike and lockout, any customer that has ordered from our website, eBay Store, or Amazon.com, will be experiencing major delays in receiving their shipment.  In the mean time, we still can offer delivery to Canada with UPS.  Here is the official message from the USPS.com website.

USPS DELIVERY OF MAIL TO CANADA STILL SUSPENDED, WILL STOP ACCEPTING MAIL EFFECTIVE COB. SATURDAY, JUNE 18.

Canada Post has informed USPS its suspension of services would last until at least next week. With this notification, USPS will stop accepting all services destined to Canada with the exception of Global Express Guaranteed (GXG) Shipments at 11:59 p.m., CST, Saturday, June 18.

Customers sending letters and packages to Canada can avoid service delays by using GXG, which is available online at usps.com and at participating retail locations throughout the U.S.”

On June, 14th, the agency locked out 50,000 workers.  Over the last week, no progress has been made in negotiations, although it looks like the government may step in and “rescue” the postal service.

We apologize to all of our customers who have been affected by the lock out.  We will keep an eye on the situation, and hope both sides are able to resolve their issues and resume postal services quickly.  If the situation is stressful for us here in the States, I can only imagine how tough it must be for small business and individuals who depend on the service for their survivability.

If you have any questions about the status of your order, please give us a call at 1-800-380-6726 or contact us online.
