Delivery & Returns
DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID-19 UK LOCK DOWN, WE HAVE MADE THE DECISION TO ONLY DESPATCH PARCELS ONCE A WEEK IN ORDER TO AVOID PUTTING OURSELVES AND OTHERS AT RISK. THIS WILL EFFECT THE ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIMES, STATED BELOW.
COVID-19 LOCAL COLLECTION:
We, like many other small businesses, are waiting to receive guidance from the Scottish Government about the re-opening of shops. Meanwhile, our online store is open as usual. When shopping online, you can still choose to collect your order from the store. Simply choose 'Collect from Store' at check out, and we will get in touch with you via text to arrange a time for you to swing by and pick up your goodies. As the store itself isn't open, the collection times are restricted. We offer our customers to come by and collect their orders between 10am-12pm, Tuesdays to Saturdays. However, we can make exceptions for customers who can't swing by at those times.
