Uh-oh. Our CEO got his hands on a map showing a big pink area to the north of the United States. Then he figured out we haven’t shipped any t-shirts up there. Fury flashed in his eyes as he raged, “Why don’t we own this? WHY DON’T WE OWN THIS?”
So now our tentacles are creeping northward. Beginning at midnight tonight, Shirt.Woot will sell and ship t-shirts to Canada. Our Great White Northern cousins will be the only subjects of the British Crown to enjoy the full rights and privileges of Shirt.Woot membership. It’ll work pretty much the same way things work for the Yanks – you clicka the button, we senda the shirt – with a few caveats:
- We cannot offer a free shipping option to Canada, nor an overnight shipping option. Shipping will always be US$5, and always via the Canadian equivalent of SmartPost. Sorry, but at least you guys get free health care.
- You won’t really be able to track your shipment. We ship all Canada-bound packages to a sorting center in New Jersey, where they are loaded onto a fleet of dog sleds for Canadian distribution. Alas, the dog sleds are not yet equipped with Wi-Fi.
- The other Woot sites still cannot sell to Canada, due to an arcane web of regulations, duties, customs, tariffs, enchantments, and curses – even though these rules failed to protect the United States from Celine Dion.
So welcome to the shirt-fold, Canada! Take advantage of that muscular loonie with stylish and functional Shirt.Woot wear, perfect for everywhere from the curling sheet to the poutine shack. Unfortunately, we can only accept payment in U.S. dollars, and not in the form of bacon, hockey pucks, or improvisational comedians.
