Tarantula Canada will be attending the Western Canada Reptile Expo in Red Deer on August 27 and 28. We will have our full selection of tarantulas and other invertebrates, as well as a selection of T-shirts and books. We are now taking reservations for the expo. Please send preorders by August 19 to guarantee they will be available.
Edmonton Area: For folks who cannot make it out to the expo but want to save money on shipping, orders can be placed and picked up from Ollie's place in Leduc (free shipping!). Orders need to be placed by August 19 to guarantee they will be available.
We will be taking some time off from July 23 to August 7 to spend time with our boys, visit the Grandmas, and just have some summertime fun. During our break we will be slower than usual to answer messages (phone and email), we will not be available for purchases at the shop, and we will not be shipping orders. Our last official shipping day before the break will be July 20, and we will resume shipping on August 8.
UPDATE: Canada Post says no work disruptions
We just received the following message from Canada Post: "Canada Post has withdrawn its 72-hour notice, which was to take effect Monday, July 11. As a result, there will be no lockout. We also expect the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) to honour what it has said publicly on many occasions – that they wish to negotiate and have no plans to issue a strike notice. We therefore expect mail service to continue without interruption, and we feel you can ship with us with confidence."
Since there is no pending threat of a work disruption (either by strike or lockout) we will resume shipping as normal this week. We will continue to watch the negotiations and act accordingly if it looks like a work disruption is a possibility.
