MOST ASKED QUESTION: How do I get my parcels at Pappy's?

Wondering how to best manage shipping and receiving to Smoky Lake Region? Pappy's is here for you!

Since you often don't know how your package is being shipped, sending it to our address as a Hold for Pickup (HFPU) with your name and phone number on it ensures it will be in Smoky Lake, either with us or at Canada Post. Like this:

Name: your name

Address line 1: 141 White Earth Street

Address line 2: HFPU Pappy's 

Smoky Lake, Alberta T0A 3C0

Phone: your phone number

What does it cost? Canada Post and non-Purolator pickups are $2,  Purolator pickup is free. Freight is $7 per 100lbs.

For privacy reasons, many couriers are no longer putting your phone number on the outside of package. Just give us a call or text 780 6568298 to be added to our customer directory so we can text or call you when your package arrives.

No, no account is needed however, if you ship or receive many parcels per month we are happy to set up a billing account , monthly subscription or convenient Pickup Punch Card so you don't need to remember to bring your wallet.

2. Why does it cost $4 for parcels from Couriers or other companies?

We charge a small convenience fee for parcels that are non-Purolator, only because we have yet to get an agency with the other couriers. We keep trying, but many are reluctant to set up agencies in rural locations.
