Pre-order Items

We normally order at the beginning of the month, the first Tuesday or Friday, and the suppliers normally take a week to deliver to us. Therefore the delay on Pre-order items could be up to 5 weeks but can be a lot less depending upon when you order. If we have a lot of Pre-order items waiting we may order in the middle of the month too.

If you want more info, including the exact date we are ordering next from suppliers, please contact us.

Please Note - all times shown may be extended over any Holidays noted on our Opening Hours Page.

Please remember the whole of the order containing a Pre-order item will be delayed until that item has come in stock - if you want the rest of the order quicker please put in a separate order.

Some items are on pre-order as we have not got them in stock yet, sometimes because we are not sure how popular they will be. When a customer buys some of these we have to buy a full pack and the spare ones are kept for the next customer - these are then noted as "in stock".

As we only order them from the manufacturer when a customer orders some, there will be a delay in the sending of the order. The delay depends upon when you order, see the normal order days shown at the top of the page. If the manufacturer is out of stock, or the delay is much longer than expected, we will email you.

If you order 'in stock' items on the same order as a Pre-order item, the whole order will be held until the Pre-order comes in stock. We are not able to split orders after they have been placed but we can remove items if you wish. If you require other 'in stock' items and do not want to wait for the Special Pre-Order Items to come in stock, please make a separate order with just the 'in stock' items you require quicker. (i.e. place 2 orders - 1 with the Pre-order items and one with the 'in stock' items).

We will not charge your card for any items until your parcel is ready to send to you.

We realise this will not be suitable for every customer but it does mean we can supply more of the items that the manufacturers make.
