Because of Covid it is very difficult for Seafarers to get out to do the kind of shopping that they usually like to do. Therefore we have set up a system where by they can place an order and we (Saint John Seafarers Mission ) can pay for it, pick it up and deliver it to the ship. Sometimes the time lines are quite tight. When you think you are ready to order email me and lets work this out together. Eric Phinney, Chaplain Saint John Seafarers Mission.
Procedure for ordering from Walmart in Saint John
Appoint one member of the crew to be the liaison person. They can contact me on messenger, by email or phone 1(506)643-0799 email@example.com

Set the store location to: Saint John East Supercentre
Fill the shopping basket with your items. Make sure that they show that they are available.
Maximum value to be less than $1000CDN
Maximum number of items 200
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org when the order is complete. I will pay for it and then convert it to USD and bring it to the ship. I will send you the total amount that you will pay in US cash.
Procedure for ordering from Best Buy
Go to http://bestbuy.ca
Creat an account using one of the crews email addresses.
Make the Password Sjseafarers[name of ship]
Set the Postal code to E2H2J5 (this will ensure that you connect to the Saint John store)
As you find items you wish to purchase, select “pickup in Store”
You will fill in a form that says who will pick it up. Put in my information
When this is done email me at email@example.com with your account name and Password. I will send you confirmation that I have paid the store and tell you what you will own me in USD. I will convert to USD and add a 5% handling fee. I will then arrange a delivery time to the ship.
Do not put the order in until you know that the ship will be docking. BESTBUY will only hold the items for 24 hours.
At some point it would be really great if each of the crew could fill in the survey below. It has been developed by the Mission to Seafarers in the UK and helps us tremendously to serve you better.
