Website status

We are back, and the blog suffered a major server crash this past weekend, and our hosting provider has been hard at work getting things back online. If you have placed an online order anytime from noon  Saturday through to Sunday there is a good chance it has been lost. Please check your email and look for an email from us confirming the receipt of your order. Should you not have one please call us at 416-667-1000 ext 124. We will be happy to confirm or retake your order.

This also applies to emails sent to us within the same time frame.

Our website is now fully functional

We appreciate your patience as we get things up and running once again
