Browse through our online catalog or use the search box to find items you want to purchase. Then click "ADD TO CART" to add the item you are looking for into the shopping cart. Quantity can also be selected during the process.

Once you have all the items you want to purchase in your shopping cart. Open the shopping cart by clicking on the shopping cart at the upper right-hand corner, then click "CHECKOUT". Alternatively, you can click "VIEW CART" to review the items, quantities, and price. Once you are at the checkout page, you can either checkout as a guest (not recommended) or login to your account. If you don't have an account already, you can also create one during the checkout.

If you select pick-up at your shipping method, you'll make your payment when you pick-up your order. After the order is placed, you'll see a confirmation page with your order number and you'll also receive an e-mail confirmation. If you do not see a confirmation page with an order number, your order hasn't been placed yet! Please check to see if there was error preventing the order to process.

Q: How can I modify an existing order?
To modifiy an existing order, you must give us a call before 3PM ET. Until you receive a confirmation from us (usually by e-mail) that your order has been paused/modified, your order is still going full throttle.

Q: I can't add an item to my shopping cart. What do I do?
If the item is "Out of Stock" or "Unavailable", you won't be able to add the product into your shopping cart. If the item is "Backorder", that means we are out of stock with that item but we'll be re-stocking soon.

If everything is normal and you still can't add an item to the shopping cart, it might be a internet browser compatibility issue. Try using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firfox. We try our best with our web team to fix browser compatibility issues but we haven't work every single issue out.

Yes, you can come and make your purchase in person. Keep in mind that we are an on-line store and only a limited number of our products are on display in our showroom. We prefer you placing an order online and select "Pick-up" as the shipping method and wait for the pick-up e-mail to steamline the process.

Q: How come the price of some items changes daily?
The price for some items are not based in Canadian Dollar and are affected by daily currency exchange rate. Our settlement currency is in Canadian Dollar.

Q: What payment methods do you accept?
For shipping order, we accept MasterCard, VISA, PayPal, and Cheque. For pick-up/in-person purchase, we accept MasterCard, VISA, Debit, and Cash.

Q: Why was my credit card declined?
The most common reason for credit card decline is a mismatch with the billing address you gave us and the one on file with your bank. Make sure that you have entered the address you receive your statement in the billing address field. If this address is wrong, our system will decline the transaction. However, your bank may hold the funds for several days while they confirm that our system did indeed decline this transaction. Avoid this by checking your billing address before completing your order!

Credit cards can also declined because of incorrectly entered CVV codes (the 3 digits on the back of the card). Other scenario that may cause the transaction to be declined by the bank can include lack of funds, or just lack of trust (they don’t know who we are). If problem presist, you can try checkout with another payment method.
