SHIPMENT TRANSIT TIMES

Through our partnerships with major shipping corporations we are able to have shipments delivered all across Canada and USA as early as next business day! All shipments processed through UPS, FedEx or Canada Post will be delivered on weekdays only, unless Saturday shipping option (surcharges apply) is requested prior to placing your order.

SHIPMENT CUT-OFF

Orders received before 11:00 am EST Monday to Thursday* will be shipped on the same day. Any orders received after 11:00 am EST, or on Friday and on weekends/Canadian Holidays, will be shipped next business day.

*If your order is received late in the week and expected delivery (based on the shipment method you have selected) is for the following week, your order shipment date will be moved to Monday of the following week. This is done to ensure freshness of your sweets as well as to reduce the transit time for your order, as shipments shipped late Thursday and Friday may be held at the courier warehouse over the weekend.      

Larger orders and orders that require additional information from the customer may be delayed in shipment.
