If an item in your order is on a manufacturer backorder, we will notify you by email or phone within 48 hours of the order. We will do everything reasonably possible to fulfill every order and to maintain sufficient inventory. You may contact customer support before placing an order to check item availability.
'Ships within 24 hours' refers to business days. Our facilities are closed on Saturday and Sunday.
Occasionally, an item may have to ship directly from our supplier. If this is the case, we will contact you and give you a shipping timeframe. Dropshipped orders generally ship within 5 business days.
Sale items are subject to availability and product discounts are available while supplies last.
All items, with the exception of sale items, may be returned to use if the item is unused and in all the original manufacturer’s packaging. Our items are used in food service, and due to food safety regulations, we cannot accept open merchandise unless the items were shipped in error or damaged in shipping. Items must be returned within 30 days from receipt of your order. Please contact our Client Service team for a RMA, return label and instructions. You will be responsible for round trip shipping plus a 10% restocking fee. Upon receipt and inspection of the items returned, we will credit you, less these fees, to the original form of payment. Refunds may take up to 2 weeks to process. All sale items are final and are not eligible for return.
A restocking fee is charged so we can keep our prices low. For every returned item, there are additional costs involved with processing the return. Instead of raising our prices sitewide to make up for this loss, we charge a restocking fee for each returned item.
