IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO
We expect your order to ship on Thursday, however we will not ship meltable product if the transit time would have it sitting in a warehouse or on a truck over a weekend. For these shipments we will hold them, and ship them on a Monday, or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday.. If you are ordering meltable products and the delivery date is time sensitive please call us at 888-729-1960 to make arrangements. If we are out of stock of any items we will contact you via email or telephone before we ship your order. Please be sure to include any special delivery instructions that will assist the delivery process, especially if you are shipping to an apartment.
If you are purchasing meltable items, we strongly suggest you take two precautions:
These other situations may also delay your order:
Below are the current ground service transit times from our warehouse in Cleveland, Ohio.
Please note these times are from the day shipped, not from when an order is placed.
We may delay your shipment is warm weather is a concern.
Please call 888-729-1960 is the receipt date for your candy is time sensitive.
When hot weather is upon us, we reserve the right to modify our available shipping methods to make sure you receive your product in good shape. All orders containing meltable items ( generally chocolate, wax and sugar free products ) should choose either next day or 2 day express shipping. You can also help by shipping to a business address if possible. These generally ( but not always ) receive shipments earlier in the day and have someone there to receive the package. If you ship to a residence and the driver determines, in his or her opinion, it is not safe to leave the package, then they won't! And if they do, it may sit in the hot outdoors until retrieved by you! Please let your product sit at room temperature if is has been in hot conditions. This will allow any product that may have gotten soft to return to normal. We may hold an order an wait to ship until the next Monday so it does not sit in a hot truck over a weekend.
Packages are picked up from our warehouse Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays. No orders are shipped out on weekends or holidays. Please remember Saturday and Sunday are not business days, and a Saturday delivery requires that you call us to purchase Saturday Delivery which is offered at an additional charge.( assessed by the carrier - not us.)
PO Boxes and Military addresses:
USPS: FedEx and UPS WILL NOT ship to PO Boxes. We'd prefer a street adress, but we will ship to a PO Box if you request. These shipping charges are typically higher. Also, this may delay the date in which your order is shipped.
APO/FPO: If you are shipping to a military base, the US Postal Service is the ONLY way to ship.
