A couple of friends received their stuff in multiple shipments. As soon as the pack is sent, they charge it to their account.
A couple of friends ordered respectively 3, 4 and 5 weeks ago, got their card charged and still didn't receive anything except cheap bad excuses. I feel so bad for them. Can't you see it's just clickbait, free social visibility and cheap advertising? Call it what you want, I call it fucking bullshit. And it kills honest manufacturers who will never see a dime on any of the past years sales.. Yet another hoax in my book...

I ordered stuff from France, Germany and Maskinongé just last week and already received everything. Some retailers care about their customers, others don't. Buying is voting.

They are trying to survive I guess.
Trying to survive by killing others, not paying for what they already sold and ripping people off? I know I know, nobody cares about honesty, ethics, service and justice. As long as they get good prices... Ahhhh... Shut the fuck up Johnny... Ok ok, I'm out of here again...
Just to say that I did received my full order but more than a month after ordering. I talked to LilCliffy and he received its order as well.

Hopefully they made some money out of it to pay most of their suppliers so that we still can have access at a Canadian reseller with a wide range of XC BC gear.

Literally I lost them by a few hrs

I received everything too... Just a little error (they got mixed up with my xc wax order). But the rest is fine. Received my Alpina Alaska 40. It acts as a confirmation that my GF has a false 40 (which is actually a 41); Strange thing...
