A very warm, 'Thank You' to all of you that have made Chris and I feel so welcome and have voiced appreciation for our efforts, to date. We can’t thank you enough for your support, encouragement and feedback and, to that end, are working hard to create a section that will best serve you!
A little secret . . . Chris actually lives south of the 49th parallel and I live north of it so I am delighted to be trying to include some ‘home-grown’ companies or at least Canadian based just for us! (BTW - If you have any thoughts or ideas as to who might be a ‘good fit’ for us, we’d love to hear from you.)
We understand that some of you have heard horror stories about buying ‘on-line’ from ‘across-the-line’! Chris and I would like to share that we honestly have not heard of any ‘issues’ resulting from ‘e-cross-border-shopping’ with the companies that we have associated with and, in fact, have found their customer service divisions extremely helpful when we have queried them on their return policies and their insights into tariffs and duties, shipping costs and times, etc.. Nonetheless, we can appreciate the sense that there is less likelihood of ‘surprises’ when buying locally plus there’s always a ‘feel-good’ feeling to be supporting others who call Canada home!
I am going to do my very best to keep adding to this section. In the meantime, “TANKS FOR STOPPING BY!”
Hilary and Chris
PS – If you can’t find what you’re looking for ‘locally’ we hope you won’t be afraid to look at what’s available ‘south-of-the-border’. Everyone we have been in touch with so far has been extremely helpful!
