And now, The September resonates as an alternative shopping experience for so many reasons.
Immediately, Canadian customers are free from the burden of additional duty charges and enjoy
the ease of free shipping and returns. But after that, other unique factors conspire to create
our particular brand of Canadian-based magic.
Our edit is carefully curated to fulfill the needs of our discerning client base. Our white
glove service is exemplary from its personalized assistance to the beautiful gift wrap. Our
team is passionate, dedicated and ensures that each shopping experience is exceptional. And
our shop-online practicality is unbeatable: no traffic, no parking, just the ease of shopping
from wherever you are.

that is what sets the brand apart: making people’s lives easier.
It is behind everything I do and what inspired me to establish The September. I sincerely look
forward to continuing this exciting, alternative and truly special legacy.
