Woolables in Canada ~ YAY or NAY?

Woolables in Canada ~ YAY or NAY?

We have some EXCITING news to share!  For those who don't already know, Rugs by Roo is actually based in Canada.  But most of our sales efforts have been focused in the United States because most of our suppliers only have distribution warehouses in the United States.  It is important to us that orders made by you, our customers, are filled promptly.

It has, however, always been my dream to bring all our rugs into Canada since this is our home base.  As we grew our business over the years, we've experimented with different ways of getting our rugs into Canada.  We often run into delays at the border and get hit with a substantial amount of duties and taxes.  Yet we continue to offer our rugs to our Canadian customers because well, its hard to say no. 

With this in mind, you can understand why I am so excited about this upcoming new venture with Lorena Canals.  From now until the end of March, we will be running a trial period where we will be stocking select styles and quantities from Lorena's Woolables Collection in our Canadian warehouse.  By doing so, we can start to offer our Canadian customers free shipping within Canada at a quicker turnaround time.  There is a small catch though...

We will be restocking our Canadian warehouse only once a month.  The 15th of every month, to be exact.  All orders for Lorena Canals' Woolables rugs placed before the 15th of each month will be filled before the end of that month.  All orders placed after the 15th of every month will be filled at the end of the following month.

For example, if you place an order for a Woolables rug on March 3rd, your rug will be processed and shipped before March 30th.  If you place your order on March 17th, your rug will be processed and shipped before April 30th.

While this trial period is running, I'd love to hear what you all think.  Do you want to see Woolables in Canada?  If you've gotten your hands on one, how is it working out in your home?  Do you like it?  Let me know by email at sandy@rugsbyroo.com. 

If all shapes out, Rugs by Roo can very well become the exclusive distributor in Canada for all of Lorena Canals Woolables and Cotton Home Collections.  Pretty cool, eh?  I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed. 

Have a lovely day, y'all!

Sandy

I have three kids.  I also run an online business from home.  The assumption is that I am the primary attender to my kids and that my business is secondary.  I should always prioritize my kids over work and if I do need to work, then that's more of an exception than the norm.  But here's the thing.  I LOVE my work!

As moms, we've all swooned over the perfect baby nursery photo on Pinterest.  We are often so focused on choosing the right colours and the right patterns that we don't think about the right materials.  People see a photo of a baby nursery with a rug in it and they automatically assume it is a baby safe rug when in fact it is made from a synthetic material, probably polypropylene, and contains glues, dyes and sprays that cannot pronounce.

As I’ve been on my own healthy house journey, I have learned so much and I’ve come to appreciate businesses that are owned and run with our health and our world’s health in mind.  Rugs by Roo is just that type of company, which is why I absolutely adore them.
