New reduced Canada Post rates!

We are pleased to announce reduced Canada Post shipping rates!  We have reduced our Canadian shipping rates by 10% across the board.  We are shipping hundreds of packages per month now, so Canada Post was nice enough to give us a discount.

Thank you for your support and enjoy the new rates!

Are you bummed that Adafruit is not selling AdaBox subscriptions to Canadians?  We are too! 

We are evaluating the possibility of distributing AdaBox in Canada for Adafruit.  Please email us if you are interested in learning more.

Potential Canada Post Strike

To our loyal customers:

Up until this point, we have exclusively used Canada Post as our shipping provider.  Unfortunately, it looks like there is a good chance that the Canadian Union of Postal Workers may go on strike effective July 4.  

To keep our business going, we have added UPS services to our shipping options.  As a small but growing business, our UPS rates are fairly high, so you may see increased shipping costs via UPS.  

For our local customers, we are once again offering local pickup in Toronto.  Just meet us at MakeWorks, 1139 College St.  We request that you contact us via email prior to stopping by so we can make sure your items are ready.

We hope that Canada Post and the Postal Workers can resolve their differences as soon as possible!

Thank you for your business!

Hello

Welcome to our store!  I wanted to share a bit about our vision for Elmwood Electronics.

While we are new to Canada we are not new to the Maker Electronics world.  Our founder, Craig LeMoyne, started Chicago Electronic Distributors in 2013 and the company continues to be very successful.  As we surveyed the Canadian landscape for Maker Electronics, we thought there was an opportunity to offer a wider selection of products from partners like Adafruit.   With the buying power of our US and Canadian affiliates, we are able to offer great prices.

In addition to great prices and a wide selection, we are also experts in Arduino and Raspberry Pi.  We regularly work on special projects for our customers, let us know an we would be happy to provide a quotation.

Thank you for your business!
