Any applicable taxes will be calculated and displayed when completing checkout and prior to submission of your order. All taxes displayed are estimates and the final tax amount will be confirmed based on your final order total. Once you submit your order, the prices of items, or price per weight of items where applicable, is guaranteed unless you placed an order for an item where we have inadvertently listed the incorrect price for a particular item. Although we make our best effort to ensure pricing is accurately reflected for each item on our Website, because our Website contains a large number of items, it is always possible that some of the products listed on our Website may be incorrectly priced. In those circumstances, we reserve the right to apply the correct current price to the item at checkout during Order Pick-up. If you are not satisfied with the current price, you have the right to remove the product from your order.  In cases where we custom-cut, or select  variable weight items (such as certain meats or produce or other items priced by weight (e.g. kg/grams)) , the per-item price you see in your shopping cart for such items is estimated based on the weight you select on the Website. The final price of these items will be based on the same price per weight indicated on the Website when you completed your checkout and submitted your order, but the final price is determined once we have prepared and weighed your order, and will appear on the invoice you receive at the time of Order Pick-up. As the actual weight of the products may differ slightly from the order placed on the Website, the final price of the items may differ slightly. For such products, the prices you pay are always based on the actual final weight of your products. If you are not satisfied with the final price and weight, you have the right to remove the product from your order.

Although our goal is to fulfill 100% of each order, from time to time, products may be unavailable due to the perishability of items, market conditions, or other conditions beyond our control.
