Zip.Ca Finally Arrives in B.C.

I use the DVD rental by mail service, despite the moderately slow turn around times, because I’m a lazy, lazy boy sometimes. But today, they emailed me to let me know that they’re open a distribution center in Vancouver next week. is committed [can you say committed if you haven’t been doing it? – ed.] to providing you the best online video service in the country. To meet the needs of our growing membership base in British Columbia, we’re pleased to announce the opening of a new, state-of-the-art distribution centre located in Vancouver. Over the next few days we’ll be transitioning some of our inventory to Vancouver and we’ll begin shipping your DVDs bright and early on Monday, June 5, so watch your mailbox for your next DVDs.

That’ll cut Susie’s time to watch all 14 16 seasons of Law and Order on DVD in half!

    this is just a way to nail you for extra shipping & handling charges when you exceed your X number of rentals per month. i cancelled my membership when they changed (and eliminated the vhq 3-dvd plan to which i had originally been subscribed) to the new-math plans.

    down with!

    no, i’m not bitter. why would you think i’m bitter?
