Chapters Indigo Minimum Order Number for certain sale items

Was interested in buying a few sale times from Chapters-Indigo and noticed that they have a "minimum order" number for some of the items.

Example: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/ho ... e&ikwidx=5

and: https://www.chapters.indigo.ca/en-ca/ho ... e&ikwidx=0

Thought that was odd. Have never seen another retailer do this.

Noticed this last year when trying to make an order. Was impossible to find a filler under the $3 or 4 that didn't have the min. order necessary, got sick of searching so ordered from Amazon instead.

They sometime offers free shipping no minimum, but you can also ship to store and it's always free no matter the amount.
I mean that there's a minimum number of items you have to order in order to get the item (ie, you have to order two of something or they won't ship it to you at all)

I've run into this before, with inexpensive items.

I've never seen that before..I would totally just order the minimum and return one to the store if I really didn't want to keep 2 of the same item. Or just gift the other!

It’s because it’s END OF SEASON stuff
They have too much of and just want to get rid of as quickly as possible
At almost any cost...
Honestly, no offence, but it’s tacky / gimicky junk that no one really wants
And Chapters / Indigo does not want to pay to store it
If no one buys it soon... they’ll probably sell it “by the pound” to a 3rd Party Reseller
(Lol, Coming Soon to a Winners / Dollar Store near you)
