Hey Everyone! CBC news ran a story on Kinek which has sent a TON of traffic our way. To be honest, it was more than we expected and it’s had the unfortunate result of reducing our site to a crawl, if not outright crash. We thank you for your patience because  know a ton of you are trying to learn more about the service and sign up. We’re working hard on our end to bring the site back to life and cope with the “new normal” of traffic. We’ll keep you posted via Twitter and Facebook.

Stay tuned!

We’re excited to announce one of our newest US e-commerce partners, Home Improvement Superstore! We’ve partnered with HIS to provide them with a more cost effective way to ship to their Canadian customers by shipping to our network of parcel receiving locations along the US border. Home Improvement Superstore carries a large selection of home appliances and home improvement products, all at great prices. On top of that, they ensure your order gets ship out within 24-48 hours of being placed.

By partnering with Kinek, Home Improvement Superstore has enabled its Canadian customers to ship to one of Kinek’s 28 Border KinekPoints. These are located at every major border crossing between the US and Canada and act as a personal US shipping address for Canadians. By shipping to a KinekPoint at their nearest border crossing, Canadians are able to entirely eliminate international shipping and brokerage fees. Once the package arrives at a KinekPoint, we notify the customer of it’s delivery and that we’ll store it for 30 days. They can then drive down and pick it up at  a time convenient for them.

Check out Home Improvement Superstore’s products and stay tuned for more partner news!
