What happens if I order an item and it is out of stock?

If an item is out of stock, normally you will still see the image of the product but you will be unable to purchase it at that time. In exceptional circumstances, an item that appears to be in stock on the website may still be out of stock. If this is the case, we will contact you to let you know. We will discuss potential substitute products and let you know when the product is due to be back on our shelves. 

Do you substitute items?

From time to time, a product you have ordered may be out of stock. In the case of hampers, occasionally, a product which is due to be included in a specific hamper may be out of stock. If this occurs, we will contact you to let you know, will advise you as to when it will be back in stock and will suggest other products which may be similar in nature and/or price. 

I’m thinking of ordering an Ardkeen Quality Food Store hamper but I’d really like to change one of the products in it. Is this possible?

We are delighted that you are considering purchasing one of our hampers. Our hampers are generally pre-made a few days in advance and therefore we do not make changes to the products included in them. However, please feel free to use our ‘Build Your Own Hamper’ service. You can choose from any of the products within the shop. Simply purchase them as though you are doing your regular Ardkeen shopping and just add the ‘Gift Wrap’ option at the checkout. Just let us know the details of the lucky recipient and we will pack their bespoke hamper and send it out to them the next day. 

What kind of a shelf life is likely to be on fresh products I buy?

We are well known for our Food Hero products here at Ardkeen Quality Food Store. A lot of the Food Heroes we work with are small businesses who produce products with a short shelf life, in small batches. In a lot of cases, they don’t produce their product every single day. In the case of fresh products and producers, we will work with both them and you to ensure that you are receiving the freshest products available to us at all times. 

I want to buy more of a product than you have in stock - how can I do that?

At any time, the website will allow you to order the quantity of a product which is in stock at that time.
