Dollarama launching online stores in Quebec starting December 13

Dec 12 2018, 8:42 pm

Starting tomorrow morning, Quebecers will be able to stock up on supplies from Dollarama from the comfort of their own home.

The retail chain, which is headquartered out of Montreal, will launch its first e-commerce website in a pilot project that will include home deliveries, exclusively in Quebec (to start).

Customers will also be able to purchase items online and pick up their orders from a third-party pickup site.

According to Dollarama spokesperson Lyla Radmanovich in an email with Daily Hive, “general merchandise and consumable products will be available by the case-full only.” Which means that customers can shop for products in bulk transactions only and a fixed $18 rate will be attached with every order.

For example, Radmanovich says a case of pencils will clearly state how many units are contained and customers can select how many cases they would like to purchase.

Compared to the 4,000 regular products and the 700 seasonal items, Dollarama’s online store will offer a selection of approximately 1,000 items.

Dollarama doesn’t yet have a timetable for the online pilot project but plans to operate its service around the country, assuming the online store performs well in Quebec.

Radmanovich says the company is hoping to address a need among small businesses and for customers looking to buy in bulk.

Since 2009, Dollarama has been Canada’s largest retailer of items under $4. Dollarama currently has over 1,000 locations across the country and has a presence in every province, with the most stores in Ontario.
