Service Disruption Alert: All Shipping Carriers
Update Nov 25
As the province continues efforts to recover from the effects of last week’s storm, BC is preparing for additional rainfall. Weather experts are calling for more precipitation beginning Thursday and through the upcoming weekend, threating to raise rivers once again. While it is unclear what the impacts on the recovery efforts will be, our hearts go out to all British Columbians during this very difficult time.
Reports from our partner carriers earlier this week were hopeful for some movement by Wed, Nov 24, however, it has taken longer than anticipated to resume normal operations. Limited access to main highways into and out of BC continues as the province restricts the major roads to essential travel only. As a result, there has been very little movement of shipments into and out of the province. Severe delays are expected.
As before, we remain in steady communication with our partner carriers for the latest updates and we will provide more information on your shipments as news becomes available. We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Due to adverse weather conditions including flooding, rockslides and mudslides in B.C., there are multiple road and rail closures affecting ground transportation of all mail and parcels across Western Canada. Customers will experience delays in receiving items. All carrier companies are committed in providing service to the best of their abilities in areas affected by the storms and as local conditions allow. Priority is placed on safety.
The Polish Store will continue shipping to the affected areas but does not guarantee or have control over when the mail and parcels will arrive in the these areas. Please continue checking your tracking information for any updates and be prepared for delays.
Thank you for your support and patience.
