Expo Updates: Montreal, Abbotsford and Edmonton

The weekend of April 27/28, Tarantula Canada will be attending THREE expos on the same weekend.  Martin will be running the Montreal expo (April 28 only), Amanda is flying out to Abbotsford, and the Edmonton expo (ERAS) will be in the capable hands of Ollie and Cody.  

Preparing animals for this weekend it will be tricky, as we will have to split our stock between the three events.  This means that some species will be in extremely short supply, or in cases were we only have one or two specimens in stock, they may not be available at all.  For this reason, we highly recommend that folks put in pre-orders if there is a must have species on their wish list.  We will begin taking pre-orders on April 1 (just to give Amanda time to clear the March 31 expo in Toronto), and we recommend to get orders in by April 19 (keeping in mind that we have to pack the animals to go out west early).

Cash will be accepted at the expos of course, but other payment options will be limited at two of the expos, as we only have one mobile card reader.  We have decided to send the reader to Edmonton, so payments can be made with credit card or debit.  In Abbotsford, Amanda will be able to process credit cards by phone, but not debit.  She will be able to accept e-transfers or PayPal on the spot if need be.  For Montreal, Martin is not familiar with the phone system to process credit cards.  Amanda will try to get him trained on it, but right now, it should not be counted on.  Martin may be able to accept e-transfers or Paypal on the spot as well, but it is recommended to bring cash just in case.

ERAS expo reminder: Wild caught animals are NOT permitted for sale at the ERAS expo.  For folks who may be interested in wild caught specimens, we can arrange for you to pick up your order from Ollie's home in Leduc.
