How long does it take to ship items at Futureshop?

OK I ordered a digital camera on Dec 24 midnight and a memory stick on Dec 25 afternoon. I got an e-mail saying both orders were successfully processed however not shipped yet. I was hoping to get both the items within 3-5 business days. How long would it generally actually take?

(this is what i hate about buying online opposed to going to store and buying it- you have to wait for it!)

I got an email saying that my 52 inch tv is arriving on Jan 14. is a special delivery, so im not sure if I could pick it up somewhere instead of waiting for them to delivery it to me.

don't think you can. i guess it can take around 5-7 business days, but it is the holidays so give it a few more

I ordered the Monster Home Theatre PowerCenter ($179.99) yesterday and received my shipping email today. Will probably arrive at my house Monday or if the postman is lazy he will leave a pickup card and would have to get it from the nearest post office the next day.

You should get your order by the first week of January.

That would be quite the job getting it out the warehouse door and to your house on the same day...

Since it will be delivered by CanadaPost it won't be shipped earlier than Tuesday w/ Monday being a holiday. Yes, you may have a CanadaPost tracking number from BB/FS but it only means they have initiated the process by creating a shipping label :) If you are lucky, you live close by one of their distribution centers & CanadaPost actually picked it up on the 29th you may get it on the 31st. Realistically, you probably won't receive it before the New Year.

Special delivery on big TVs and appliances are handle by their own delivery guy/delivery company so it will be different. You will/should receive a delivery notification with a date and a ridiculous 12 hours window.

I agree, I doubt many of the packages will move from the warehouse before Tuesday. If you've found the product, best bet is to call in and have the order canceled.
