Shipping Times and Terms & Conditions

PLEASE NOTE: Canadian National Carriers such as UPS and Canada Post are experiencing delays in package delivery due to their COVID-19 safety protocols implemented in their facilities.


As such, The Costume Shoppe guarantees that your Online Order will be SHIPPED the same day your order is placed, during business hours and before cut off.  HOWEVER The Costume Shoppe cannot be held accountable for shipments that arrive after their estimated delivery times.


Please read below for Carrier Updates as they arrive.

The Costume Shoppe is NOT accepting Cancellations on orders of ANY type, so PLEASE NOTE, once your order is placed, your sale is FINAL.

CANADA POST UPDATE FROM AUGUST 30:  Canada Post is safely resuming deliveries of signature items to the door of homes with their own outdoor entrance, where delivery agents can stay outdoors to perform the delivery and capture a verbal signature. Delivery employees will wear a face covering and maintain a six-foot (two-metre) distance from customers.

For deliveries to apartments, condos and businesses with a common entrance, or for Proof of Identity (POI), Registered Mail™ and Xpresspost Certified™ items, agents will leave a delivery notice card (DNC) with the address of a local post office and information about how to pick up the package.

UPS UPDATE FROM APRIL 5, 2021:  The UPS Service Guarantee is reinstated for domestic Canada, inbound and outbound U.S. and Worldwide UPS premium air services (UPS Express, UPS Express Saver and UPS Worldwide Express).  The UPS Service Guarantee remains suspended for all other services until further notice (UPS Ground and UPS Expedited).
