WHERE WE DELIVER
At this time we are unable to offer delivery to P.O. boxes, or APO/FPO addresses. Perishable food items can only be delivered within the continental United States, Alaska and Hawaii. We will also deliver perishable food items to certain areas of Puerto Rico as long as FedEx offers overnight service to that zip code.
SHIPPING TO AN APARTMENT, CONDO, OR GATED HOME
If you are shipping to an apartment building or condo, the shipping carrier will not leave the package outside of your door. If you have a doorman or reception that typically receives packages the shipping carrier may leave the package with them. We cannot be responsible for a package if it is delivered to an apartment or condo and then not left at the door because nobody is home to receive the order. Also note that any order above $700 will require a signature, and someone must be home to receive the shipment.
If you are shipping to a gated home, you must make sure that someone is available to open the gate when the shipping carrier arrives, as packages will not be left at the front of the gate. We cannot be responsible for packages that are not left at a gated home because nobody is at the residence when the delivery is made.
SIGNATURE RELEASE OR SIGNATURE REQUIRED OPTION
Although we do provide the option for you to select whether you want an order to be left at the door if nobody is home to sign for it, the decision to leave the package or not is at the sole discretion of the shipping carrier's delivery driver. If your area is deemed to be a high-crime or unsafe area, the driver will not leave the package. If you are delivering to an apartment or condo that does not have a receiving area for packages, the carrier's delivery driver will also not leave the package outside of your door. We cannot be responsible for packages that are not left due to the named circumstances above. Please take care in having orders delivered to an address where you know someone will be home. Packages over $700 in value will require a signature and someone will need to be home to receive it.
Packages are shipped using FedEx and we offer Fedex Home Delivery with Ground Serice so 1-5 Business days (3-7 business days to and from Alsaka and Hawaii) We cannot offer any shipping refund for packages that miss their estimated delivery time by FedEx.
ORDER FULFILLMENT TIME FRAMES

PRODUCT AVAILABILITY AND OUT-OF-STOCK ITEMS

However, as we do also service wholesale customers who can make large purchases at times, sometimes we may run out of stock of an item. During the checkout process, on the Shipping Information page, we provide you with 4 options of how you would like us to handle your order in the event that an item is out of stock. We provide the options of:
LOCAL PICKUP AVAILABLE IN DELRAY BEACH

INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
In the course of doing business with either by shopping on our website or by talking with our customer service representatives, you will willingly provide us with some personal information, such as your name, address, contact information and shopping choices. By providing this information to us, you authorize us to store this information, use it to complete the fulfillment of your order, use it to provide suggestions to make your shopping experience better, and for following up with communications regarding your order. We may also use this information for future marketing to you. At times we work with other third-party companies and we may share information about you with them, such as with FedEx to complete the fulfillment of your order, or with companies in a cooperative marketing effort. Any credit card information you provide to us for completing your order is never shared with anyone and is only ever used to complete an order transaction. If you only wish to have your information used by us and for the fulfillment of your order and not shared with any third-party companies, simply email us to let us know.
ORDER CANCELLATION / MODIFICATION
We will honor all order cancellation and modification requests as much as possible. However, we do pack many orders a day, and if your order has already been packed it may be impossible to cancel or modify it simply because it can be one box out of hundreds shipping out and we might not be able to find it. During November and December simply due to the sheer volume of holiday orders, we are not able to cancel or modify orders once they are placed.
We cannot accept returns of any perishable items. We just wouldn't feel comfortable reselling a perishable food item that hasn't always been in our control, and we hope you'll feel comfortable knowing that you're only ever going to receive products that are always within our control. Many other food companies do allow their customers to return perishable food items - that just doesn't feel "right" to us. Do you want to eat a piece of cheese that was in a stranger's house for a couple of days? We don't! We can however accept the return of any non-perishable, canned or packaged food item. If you are looking to make a return though you must contact us within 2 business days of receiving the product to request a return. Any returned merchandise can only be accepted if it is in perfect resalable condition. Note that there will be a 5% or $5 restocking fee, whichever is greater.
DEFECTIVE OR DAMAGED MERCHANDISE
We take all measures possible to assure your order is received intact and in proper condition. Sometimes though the route to your house gets a bit more bumpy than anyone can control. In the event that you receive a defective or damaged product, please contact us immediately after receiving your order. Do not throw anything out or discard any items, as we may require them to be sent back. The easiest way to help us resolve any defective or damaged merchandise is to take a picture of the item and then email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org Depending on the issue, order issues may be resolved with a replacement product being issued, a store credit, a credit to your order, or any other means we feel is appropriate.
