In stock versus pre-order

We now stock over 2,000 unique items.  However, to offer the broadest possible selection, we allow pre-ordering on many items.  Pre-order means that the item is not in stock, learn more about pre-order here.

Toronto Local Pickup

As of March 23rd, 2022, we no longer offer local pick-up in Toronto. 

If you have a pick-up order outstanding, you may collect it at Cards and Such, located at 2336 Bloor St. West.   Please collect it before April 2nd. 

Any orders not retrieved by that date will be collected, and we will either refund or invoice them for shipping at your preference.

A big thank you to all our local customers who used the service over the years!
