ORDERING & CHARGES
In order to purchase groceries from our site, you need to have a valid credit card and be eighteen (18) years of age.
Ordering Window: Because our new sale prices go into effect on Friday mornings and in order to provide you with the most up-to-date, accurate prices, we only accept orders for delivery/pick-up starting on Friday through the following Thursday. For example, you can place an order on Tuesday evening for a delivery on Thursday afternoon, but you cannot place an order on Tuesday evening for a delivery on Friday afternoon.
Minimum Purchase. Your order may be subject to minimum purchase order total, not including taxes, delivery fees, and surcharges.
Pre-authorization Charges: In order to create a seamless shopping experience, we may place a temporary authorization hold on your payment method of an additional twenty percent (20%) of your estimated order total. For example: if your estimated order total amount is $100.00; your credit card will be authorized for $120.00. This allows us to account for any differences in price between the actual products that we provide to you versus what you chose; i.e. differences in the weight of produce/meat or allowing for substitutions (as described below).
Variable Weight Orders. Because many perishable items (fruit, vegetables, meat, cold cuts, etc.) are individually prepared for you, the per-item price you see in your shopping cart for variable weight items is based on an estimated weight. The final price of these variable weight items will be based on the same price per pound/ounce indicated at time of checkout, but the actual price charged is determined once we have prepared and weighed your order, and that actual price will appear on the invoice issued to you on the day of your delivery.
Substitutions: In the event that a product you choose is later found to be out of stock, if we have an item that's very similar to the item you ordered, we reserve the right to make item substitutions. We will make every effort to substitute it for a similar product, both in size and price. If you are unhappy with our substitution, please contact us. In certain instances where a substitution is not possible or appropriate, we will attempt to contact you and will not include the item(s) and not charge you for those.
Beer / Alcohol: We do not sell beer or alcohol on our site.
Bottle Deposit. In accordance with applicable state law, we collect the relevant state bottle deposit for each bottle of certain items, such as beer, soda, mineral water and still waters. Your total deposit amount will be added to the actual item amount. If you wish to recover the deposit portion of the fees, empty bottles and cans may be redeemed at any redemption center.
Prices: We make every effort to ensure that our prices online match the ones you find in our store. However, in the case that we mistakenly price an item higher or lower on the site than its actual price, we reserve the right to cancel that aspect of your order. We will not charge you for that/those item(s) and we will contact you immediately. We also reserve the right to limit the quantity of a specific item that you may order.
Size Differences: Occasionally there may be slight discrepancies between how a product is listed on the site and the actual product that is ordered or delivered. For example, a box of cereal may be shown online as 20 oz but the actual product may be 21.6 oz. These slight differences are to do only with the size of a product and do not affect the price. The price shown is accurate for the actual product being ordered.
Promotions: Certain store promotions, especially the "Key Buys", are not available online and will only be available to customers who visit our store in person. Other promotions from our weekly circular may be available online, but we do not guarantee that every promotion will be available.
Store Cards: Unfortunately, at this time we are not able to accept "store cards" online through this site. Please visit our store in person to use your card.
Credit Card Charges: Once your order has been finalized, and taking into account weight and any substitutions, it will be charged a final amount.
Cancellations: Orders placed through the site may be subject to a cancellation fee if they are cancelled after being finalized. Cancellations. Cancellation of orders after the required cutoff time will result in a restocking fee equal to the sum of (a) 100% of the total dollar amount of your perishable items (since many of our perishable items are individually prepared) plus (b) 25% of the total dollar amount of your nonperishable items.
Refunds: In the rare case that you are not happy with the product(s) you have purchased, please contact us immediately by calling the store at (203) 956-0241. For perishable products, you have 48 hours of delivery or pick-up to request a refund or replacement. For all other products, you have up to seven (7) days after delivery to contact us about the product(s).
We will make every effort to replace the defective item(s) as soon as possible. In those cases where replacement is not an option or impractical, we will issue you a refund for that particular product to your account [which can be applied to your next order]. We may require the return of the product with which you are dissatisfied before we substitute an acceptable item or issue a refund.
