In September of 2018, we started our beta testing for shipping products in Canada and throughout the world. The feedback was amazing and within the first 24 hours we had shipped items throughout Canada, USA, and Europe. Then...our main courier, Canada Post, decided to go on strike. We couldn't afford to take massive losses that would come from using other couriers, and we didn't want to upset our customers by using slower, cheaper, shipping services. So we had to innovate.
So...we decided to try and become our own courier. This allowed us to try and make same day deliveries, and in some cases even make same-hour deliveries. On December 7, 2018, we made our first 90 minute delivery in Kitchener.
After the success that we experienced in December, we realized we had to upgrade our entire infrastructure to handle the increased website traffic, and we had to re-do our programming infrastructure in order to implement the 2-hour delivery feature. Finally... as of Tuesday, February 19th, 2019... we will be officially rolling out 2 hour delivery to Kitchener, Guelph, Waterloo, & Cambridge!
