Is it possible? The answer is… no. But kind of. Allow me to explain.
Thriftbooks won’t ship any items to Canada, or anywhere else outside of the U.S. for that matter.
But there’s a fairly straightforward workaround to get any item sold on the Thriftbooks online store delivered to Canada. Best of all, it’s really inexpensive to do.
How to Deliver Items from the Thriftbooks Online Store to Canada
To receive packages from the United States, you’re going to need to have an address based there.
Now, we’re assuming that you neither own a house there or do you have relatives living there, so how is this even possible?
Don’t worry, you’re not going to need to splash out on a property, there is a much cheaper solution.
I’ll let you in on a little-known secret: there are U.S. based companies out there that provide customers with physical U.S. addresses. Yup, you read that right!
Their entire business model is based on providing foreign customers with U.S. addresses.
These addresses can be used to order items online, which then get forwarded to your real home address. They’ll even help you out with that process.
These companies are known as Freight Forwarders.
All you have to do is sign up with one of these services, and they’ll allocate a U.S. address to you.
When you order online, get your items shipped to this address, and the Freight Forwarder will receive your package and forward it on to you.
The Freight Forwarder which we would strongly recommend is called MyUS. They are reliable, affordable and unlike other Freight Forwarders, they do not charge extra taxes.
So, what are you waiting for? If you want to shop for your favourite brands on their US online stores then registering with MyUS is the best decision you can make.
We have used their services for a long time and are always impressed with their reliability.

The process is really simple. When you’re filling in the delivery details on your online order, you’ll enter the address given to you by your Freight Forwarder.
Once your Freight Forwarder receives your package, they’ll box it up with any other orders that they may have for you and send them to your address in Canada.
With MyUS, your Thriftbooks order could be with you in no time!
