When will my order be ready for in-store pickup?
We are working hard to ensure that in-store pickup orders are ready as soon as possible. We will endeavor to process all in-store pickup orders within two (2) business days, excluding weekends and statutory holidays. You will receive a pickup confirmation email once your order has been processed to inform you that it is ready for pickup. Please confirm Gift Shop operational hours prior to arrival, as hours often vary from facility hours and are subject to change.

What do I need to bring to pick up my order?
Please ensure that you have a copy of your pickup confirmation email – either electronic or printed. We may also ask you to show a piece of ID to pick up your order.

Can someone else pick up my order?
Yes! Please ensure that they have a copy of your order confirmation when they come to pick up.

How long will I have to pick up my order?
Due to space limitations, we request that you pick up your order within two weeks of receiving your pickup confirmation email. If you have not picked up your order within this window, we will process your order as a return and refund the balance to your payment card. If you are unable to pick up your order during this time frame, please contact us to make alternate arrangements.


SHIPPED ORDERS

When can I expect to receive my shipped order?

We endeavor to process and package all orders in our facility within two (2) business days, excluding weekends and statutory holidays. Once your order has been processed and a shipping label printed, you will receive a shipping notification email.

All shipped orders are shipped using Canada Post, and standard delivery rates/standards apply.

The delivery standard (shipping method) timeframe shown during checkout is an estimate, and is set by Canada Post and not the Galaxy Gift Shop. This information provides only an approximate timeframe between when a parcel is accepted at a Canada Post location and when it is delivered to the recipient. For more information on delivery standards, please see the Canada Post Delivery Standards information page

After the approximately 2 business days needed to process and package an order, typical shipping times tend to fall between 4 and 7 business days, depending on final shipping destination. Please be advised that shipment times can vary - this is determined by circumstances within the shipping community and therefore outside of our control. We thank you for your patience at this time for any delays that may occur once your order has left our facility.
