COVID 19 Update: We are still shipping daily. During this difficult time, Canadians are turning to us for our unique selection of retro puzzles, games and toys. (There's something comforting about remembering the good-old-days in times like these). Be safe out there!
RetroFestive.ca is a Canadian company. All of our items are priced in Canadian dollars. We ship everything we carry from our warehouse in Oakville, Ontario (just outside Toronto). You'll never pay any extra taxes, duty or brokerage fees when you shop with us. We do not offer shipping outside of Canada.
RetroFestive will ship, FOR FREE, orders that total $75+ (before taxes). No coupon code required. This Free Shipping offer is for standard service only (Canada Post Expedited Parcel). Faster services including Xpresspost and Priority Mail, are available for a fee. (Our shopping cart offers a handy tool that will calculate estimated shipping charges).
Our Free Shipping offer covers 90% of Canadian locations. The territory of Nunavut as well as a number of remote or rural areas are excluded from this offer. Orders from these areas may be subject to additional shipping fees in which case we will contact you with a shipping quote. The postal codes that are not included in the free shipping offer are listed here.
We Ship Quick!
Handling Time: We typically ship within one or two business days of receiving your order. (If you need to receive your parcel by a specific date, please email us to let us know!)
Once shipped, your order will take between one to nine business days to arrive, depending on how close you live to our warehouse in Oakville, Ontario. (Remote areas may take longer). Express services via Canada Post are available for additional charge.
Shipping times for each province are listed next to the map below.
- Parcel Post (Expedited & Regular) / Free Shipping = Averages 2-9 Days
- Xpresspost = Averages 1-3 Days (Depending on location). Some areas can take as long as 5 days. Major Centers and provinces closest to Ontario receive faster service than distant provinces. Canada Post often takes an additional day during peak periods such as Black Friday.
- Priority = Averages 1-2 Days (For major centers only). Don't forget, we need 1 day "handling time" to ship your order.
Most orders (inclduing "free shipping") are shipped by Canada Post Expedited Parcel Service (unless you choose XpressPost or Priority Post). This map provides estimated delivery time:
In some instances when items are thought to be in stock but are not available, you will be notified of the options available to you prior to your order shipping. Please note we reserve the right not to ship any orders for any reason. If your order has a problem and cannot be shipped, we will contact you with a potential resolution.
Due to the fact that many orders are gifts, invoices are not included with shipments.

Leg Lamp Shipping Details
Our full size leg lamps (45” and 50”) are quite large and ship in two big boxes: one box for leg and another box for lampshade.. These items are not eligible for Free Shipping. A surcharge is added, and varies depending on where you live in Canada.
Important: We have different return policies for Online Orders VS In-Store Purchases. Details Below.
Online Order Returns
Due to the seasonal nature of our business, RetroFestive has a seven day Return Policy on all products. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, you must contact us within seven days of receiving your order to receive a Return Merchandise Authorizaton Number (RMA). We will issue an exchange or refund once we receive your return at our warehouse. Print your RMA on the box/envelope and mail the items back to us at the address provided. You have a further seven days after receiving your RMA to ship the item back to us in its original condition. Failure to include your RMA on the package may result in signifigant delays in processing your refund, or a refusal of refund.
You are responsible for paying shipping charges for the return shipment. We cannot refund the cost incurred in shipping your original parcel. (This includes our costs incurred in “Free Shipping” orders).
Returned or exchanged merchandise must be unused, unworn and returned in its original packaging in re-sellable condition.
If for some reason you receive a damaged or defective product, we will send you a replacement right away. If you have questions regarding our return policy, we suggest contacting us for clarification before placing your order.
Clothing Returns and Exchanges
If you are returning apparel that does not fit, we will happily exchange it for a new size once we receive your return at our warehouse. We will pay the cost of shipping the replacement to you. Please note that clothing must be unworn, with original tags intact.
It doesn't happen often, but occasionally moose mugs can be damaged during shipping. You must notify us within 3 days of receiving your moose mugs if any damage has occurred, in which case we will replace your moose mugs and file a claim with Canada Post.
