    Does anyone have any suggestions on where to register in Canada aside from the Bay and Sears? We are currently registered at Sears and our guests are having issues ordering items online (plus we have had really poor customer service from Sears regarding our registry). Most of our guests are from outside of Canada so I need a registry that allows people to purchase gifts online... I had checked out the bay but I don't think you can add items online and we live about 50mins from the nearest store (and I don't really have time to spend in the store scanning items!). Any suggestions?

      Bed Bath and Beyond, Home Outfitters (I know home outfitters lets you do it on line..not sure about Bed Bath and Beyond). Another place is Ashleys (although thats a bit more expensive)

        Meghan I think Home Outfitters is great too! Definitely a store I would consider.

          We registered at Pier One as well as the Bay. I think Home outfitters would be a good one too.

            Bed, Bath & Beyond! One just opened up at that new mall outside of calgary/airdrie and I think edmonton is getting one soon too. I was just informed you can return things there for CASH!! woot woot! And its easy to register online :)

              We registered at the Bay and our guests were from as far away as South Africa and had no problems buying gifts on-line! Home Outfitters is owned by The Bay, so I'd assume they'd have the same purchase experience. We also live 1.5 hours from the nearest Bay or any department store for that matter and we just made an afternoon of 'scanning' items in Vancouver....then sorted out what we actually wanted/needed after the wedding!

                You can do it online, they don't charge a fee (I know that most online honeymoon registries take 3-7%) and guests can contribute to it online. HBC gifts cards can also be used towards your honeymoon. I know that this was a good option for us since we've owned a condo for 3 years and have pretty much everything else already.

                  great-I will check these out. I saw that they are opening a Bed, Bath and Beyond at West Edmonton Mall-I am assuming it is opening soon because the sign is up. Thanks for all the suggestions!!

                    If you take the time to register with the Bay and Home Outfitters they will give you free gifts. Make an appointment at both locations. They gave us a 25.00 gift cards from each store. I think you can register with Costco as well, they are always at the wedding show, so I am making an assumption.

                    Good luck

                      We are registering with Home Outfitters this week... so far the experience has been great! And since it is a national registry, it works for us with so many of our family members across the country! :)
