Secure Online Ordering

Our online store is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Ordering online is safe, easy and fast.

Your personal information is protected. We use state-of-the-art industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt information you send us electronically when you place an order -- such as your name, address or credit card number. SSL creates a secure connection to protect such information from being read as it travels through the Internet from your machine to our server. SSL is considered to be among the most secure ways to do business through the Internet. When SSL is active, it will display (depending on your software) a closed lock or an unbroken key, letting you know that the information you provide is secure.

Please feel free to take a look at our Privacy Policy to learn of the measures we take to protect your personal information and overall privacy.

How to Place an Online Order

Choose the currency for your order - either Canadian dollars ("$CA") or US dollars ("$US") - by clicking on the button in the top right corner of the page. This button is present on every page of the website.

Once you have looked through the store menus on the right side of the page and decided upon a product or products, for any given product simply click on the "ADD TO CART" button to add the product to your shopping cart. At any time, on any page, you can check your shopping cart by hovering your mouse over the yellow "SHOPPING CART" button in the top left corner of the page (once there is a product in the cart it will display at "MY CART" and indicate the number of items in the cart in parentheses). If you click on "MY CART" it will take you into your cart where you can make adjustments or proceed to checkout. When you are done shopping, simply click the "CHECKOUT" button and follow the steps of the checkout process to pay for and submit your order.
