Walmart.ca - Free Shipping to Canada Post Locations Ended?

I used to be able to pick up my Walmart.ca orders at Canada Post in Shoppers Drug Mart for free.

The only pick up locations I now see are actual Walmart stores. No Canada Post locations any more.

Has something changed?

Did your item
weigh less than 66 lbs
not exceed the maximum length of 78.7”

Running into the same problem here.

Maybe it has something to do with the on and off Canada Post strike???

I haven't tested, but it usually depends on the item(s) for me.

EDIT: Tested, I only see Walmart stores for pickup as well. Tried some random items separately. (lego, headlights, popcorn)

I thought it was because of the stupid groceries pick up program Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Tightly-closed Eyes

A Young lady brought it to my attention in our town. A lot of people don't have a ton of money so this was an awesome option. Free shipping if Under $25. We don't even get free shipping if $50+ in our Town.

Anyways I confirmed it by testing it also tested in the Barrie area no luck.

Is their systems down or this because the possible strike or a change at Walmart? Hopefully one the first 2...

It only Shows Walmart locations now.

Thanks.

Okay I can confirm from their Facebook on someone else who asked the question that they suspended the service temp:

Hopefully they restore it after the strike / settlement.
