It’s an exclusive Canada Post service that allows you to have packages delivered to a post office of your choice, instead of your regular home address. Sign up or sign in now. When prompted to add a post office, just enter the address of your choice: 8889 Yonge Street (Richmond Hill) or 17310 99 Ave NW (Edmonton) and follow the instructions. You’ll receive a special FlexDelivery address to use when shopping online.
Even when the drive-thru is closed for the night, the automated shipping centre is open 24/7. It will measure and weigh your item and you can even get packing materials from a special vending machine. Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur running your small business orders after the regular work day, returning an online order that didn’t satisfy you or trying to get a birthday gift to someone you love – you’ll be able to select the service that offers your preferred balance of speed and price.
