Cancellation of Orders
On occasion, we may need to cancel your order.
This may occur when we are completely out of stock of an item in our warehouse and stores, and cannot hold your order until new stock arrives from the manufacturer. Or it could be an error in the product listing, such as an incorrect color or a pricing error. We will contact you to let you know, and if possible, we will start a new order for you with the remaining items in your order.
Suspected Fraudulent Orders
If we suspect an order is the result of a stolen credit card we will cancel the order. Please note: We will report attempted fraudulent orders or multiple declined credit cards to authorities.
We reserve the right to cancel any order at any time for any reason.
