Looking for a shop in Canada

Recommended Posts

I used to order from reaper directly
but all my latest purchases got slapped with extra custom fees
with bad exchange rates this gets expensive fast

anybody got a shop that carries reaper products in Canada?
my local shop only has some leftovers which I already pretty much got through

Ones I know of that carry Reaper Minis models... 

 

- Mission Games (online presence is board games dot CA) 

- MeepleMart

- Apt To Game carries their figures in store (and will order in), unknown what they stock on their site

- Warp One in Edmonton has a really good selection of Bones minis in stock, but unknown how they're handling the current COVID-19 shutdowns - probably the same as everyone else, with curbside, but that requires being in Edmonton. 

 

There are probably others, however I haven't spent too much time looking online for such things because my orders with Reaper are almost always large enough to have a bill attached, and since I don't mind such I just order directly.  My next order will probably have a $45ish CAD bill attached to it, for example, since I'll be buying a few minis and numerous paints (aka a few sets). 

 

As a note, you're legally required to pay GST/HST/PST/QST on any goods you import into the country that are valued at over $20 CAD.  CanadaPost just doesn't get every package that's around $80 USD.  It does suck though when you get a $20 CAD bill attached to an $81 USD package, but at that point over half the fee is for CanadaPost to handle to customs exchange and paperwork for you (can't remember if it's a $10 or $11 fee). 

 

There was talk on ReaperLive a while back about a partnership with a Canadian distribution company for Canadian sales, but I suspect that is currently on the back burner due to other more pressing matters (the new building, COVID-19 related things like retailer restocking backlog, casting of metal minis, general logistic stuff, ReaperCon Online, etc)

Another option would be Sentry Box, in Calgary (www.sentrybox.com).  They are just getting their catalogue back online,

but they are doing mail orders right now (just got a package 2 weeks ago).  If you have specific models in mind, you can

email them and they will get back to you about prices and shipping costs.

Imperial Hobbies in Richmond BC has a decent selection of Reaper minis.

They stopped carrying Reaper paint some time ago though.

Treasure Cove in Airdrie, AB can order in models from the reaper line, but their paints are from Army Painter. Distribution thing.

RAFM is the official Canada-based supplier of Reaper Miniatures out of Ontario and has been for some time. You can find them at www.rafm.com

Be prepared for l-o-n-g shipping times (COVID not withstanding), and no communications regarding your order. I once waited 3 months for an order before the threat of Ontario BBB and opening a CC dispute lit the fire under them.

I used to have a canadian customer (who ONLY would buy Sailor Moon manga) who would have her order sent to her US P.O. Box, then she'd come across the border and get her stuff. I think she still paid customs when she went back across, but she said it was cheaper for her that way.
