SECONDLY: CANADA POST INTERRUPTIONS
For anyone unaware, Canada Post is currently undergoing a labour strike here in our good country. Canada Post is still running but service may be slow because they will be understaffed as they negotiate their wages. You WILL still get your products.
We do pack all orders within 1-2 business days, but unfortunately, we have no control over how quickly products get to you once they leave our hands. Please be patient if your order takes slightly longer to get to you.
*** Something I should point out: Unfortunately this Canada Post strike is an ongoing development. We will post any updates here. If you wait to order something on Black Friday and you're in North America, it SHOULD get to you on time for the holiday season, but this is not a 100% guarantee with the strike happening! Please make sure you consider this when you place your order.
We recommend if something is extremely time sensitive to not delay. If you are planning to order something and you do not see it listed as one of the sales items in our Black Friday list above, DO NOT delay ordering. We will not be adding any last-minute additions to the list. ***
THIRDLY: STORE HOURS
Starting November 12, 2018, we'll have regular store hours. (It's about time! Right?!)
Please check the ABOUT US page for store hours and the address. Please note that we will be testing select days at first. The hours might be tweaked in the coming weeks and might change depending on demand, so please triple check what's listed so you don't show up while we're closed. We may also extend the hours as the holiday season nears.

1) Overwatch Genji's Baihu blades (long and short blades), DVa's Resin Gun

PS. If I look exhausted, forgive me. Coffee is now my best friend.
So I'm hoping to do a more detailed and proper update for you all, but I wanted to post this to at least say sorry to everyone expecting us to be at Vancouver Fan Expo and C4 Central Canada Comic Con this fall year.
We will miss you and will be back in 2019 with a vengeance!
We had a blast last year at both those events and were fully planning to attend again this year, but alas, with the holiday season underway, a lot of changes have been happening lately! With staff training (yes, I have staff now!), plans for regular YouTube and rolling out store hours shortly, we won't be able to get a team together in time for both those events. As an old Simpson's episode once said boourns!
If you notice others posting in the blog, they don't bite. Their names are Jonathan and Derek. Also they might be answering some of our backlogged customer support emails. You're all just doing a really good job keeping me on my toes lately.
For anyone looking forward to seeing us in Vancouver or Winnipeg this fall, don't forget you can buy from us anytime on this website and if you have questions, we don't bite.
Until the next update (hopefully sooner than later), see you guys!
-- Laura, CEO Fire and Steel
