Where in Canada are you? I’ve had stuff shipped to Ogdensburg before to the UPS Store, and then when it arrives you just drive over and pick it up. There is a $5 charge/week for them to hold the item and you have to pay all the taxes when you cross back.

I’d search for a UPS store in the closest town, and see if they offer a similar deal. Since you’re close to the border, it will be worth it for sure.

@sweetchiquita12:  Yeah, I’m in Edmonton so it would be quite a bit of a drive!  I did order a few things online for the wedding and shipping plus taxes gets ridiculous!  Yell

@sweetchiquita12:  There are companies like that. Fiance had my ring shipped to something like that. I can ask him when he gets home and get back to you. ๐Ÿ™‚ He online shops so much its nuts, but I live in the US and he ships it all to my house. ๐Ÿ˜› haha

Yep. Just google it. They’re in Niagara Falls (across the rainbow bridge).
