Canada Post Strike Alternatives

It appears that a strike at Canada Post may be possible as of May 25th, 2011. But, there are alternatives. Some Canadian retailers ship to local stores while others use courier services.

The following Canadian retailers offer an option to ship to their local stores :

Bestbuy.ca
Futureshop.ca
www.sears.ca
thesource.ca

The following Canadian retailers offer courier shipping :

chapters.indigo.ca (Greater Toronto Area)
Sony Style Canada (Major Cities/By Appointment)
Tigerdirect.ca – FREE SHIPPING* on selected PC Deals at TigerDirect!

UPDATE : Please read the latest blog entries for updates on the postal strike and alternative shipping options.
