Welcome to our web site! We provide this web site (“Site”) and sell and supply products (“Products”) through the Site subject to the following terms and conditions (the “Terms”).
Your access and use of the Site, including your purchase of any Products through the Site, constitutes your acceptance of these Terms. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE ANY PRODUCTS FROM, OR OTHERWISE USE, THE SITE.
In these Terms, “Operator” refers to the store operator identified above, and “we” or “us” or “our” refer to the Operator alone and never refer to the combination of you and the Operator.
These terms are divided into two parts. The first part deals with the purchase and delivery or pick-up of Products; the second part has general terms about the Site and your use of the Site.
PRODUCT PURCHASE TERMS
- Eligible Customers
You must be at least 19 years old to use the Site and to order and buy Products. We will not deliver Products to, or allow Products to be picked up by, anyone who is not at least 19 years old. We may require to see your BC government approved photo identification to confirm your age when you pick up Products or when we deliver Products to you.
You may only purchase Products for your personal use, and not for resale or commercial use.
- Ordering Products
After you place an order for Products through the Site, we will send you an e-mail acknowledging your order (“Acknowledgement”). This does not mean that we have accepted your order. Your order is an offer to us to buy a Product, and is subject to our acceptance. If we accept your order, we will confirm our acceptance by sending you an email confirming the order details (“Order Confirmation”).
The contract between you and us regarding the purchase of the Product(s) you order (“Purchase Contract”) will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation and will only relate to those Products identified in the Order Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products that may have been part of your order until we confirm the availability of those Products in a separate Order Confirmation. You should check all emails carefully, including the Acknowledgement and the Order Confirmation, to ensure that their details are correct.
Your order may not be accepted for various reasons, including:
- the Product that you ordered being unavailable;
- our inability to obtain authorization for your payment;
- the identification of a pricing or Product description error;
- you not meeting the eligibility criteria set out in, or otherwise being in contravention of, these Terms.
If there are any errors in your order, or if you require further information, please contact us during business hours at the phone number or email address set out above.
- Returns Policy
Our goal is customer satisfaction. You may cancel any order and return all unopened Products from that order for any reason within 10 days after the original purchase. If you purchased multiple Products through a single order then you cannot return only some of the Products – you must return all of them.
Please contact us at the email address set out above and provide the following information:
- Reason for return
- Product name
- Date of purchase
- Customer first and last name
- Contact phone number and email address
We will contact you to make arrangements for your return and a full refund. All returns must be made within 10 days of the original purchase. A copy of your receipt is required for all refunds.
If you cancel a Purchase Contract under section 3, we will reimburse to you all payments received from you, including the costs of delivery. We will make the reimbursement without undue delay and in any event as required by applicable law. We will otherwise make reasonable efforts to process refunds or exchanges within 30 days of the day you inform us that you wish to return the Product.
You may also have the right to cancel a Purchase Contract within certain periods as set out in BC’s consumer protection legislation if we do not comply with that legislation.
The price of any Products will be as set out on the Site at the time of your purchase (except in cases of obvious error). Those prices do not include applicable taxes. You will pay those prices plus the delivery prices set out on the Site and all applicable duties and taxes for the Products you purchase from the Site. Applicable charges and taxes will be displayed when you are ordering Products, as well as in the Order Acknowledgement. All transactions will be processed in Canadian dollars.
Despite our efforts, it is always possible that some of the Products may be priced incorrectly due to typographical error or error in pricing or product information received from our suppliers. We will normally check prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where the Products’ correct price is less than our stated price at the time of your payment, we will charge the lower amount. You will not receive a refund if Products’ prices changed between the time of your payment and the time of pickup or delivery.
If the Products’ correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, and the error could reasonably have been recognized by you as mispricing (for example, it was too good to be true), we reserve the right to reject or cancel any orders placed for Products listed at the incorrect price, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card or debit card charged, and we do not have to provide the Products to you. If your credit card or debit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we will promptly issue a credit to your credit card or debit card account in the amount of the charge.
Payments must be made in advance through the Site, either through credit card or debit card. We may change our prices from time to time, but any such change will not affect orders in respect of which we have already sent an Order Confirmation.
If we allow you to pay us directly via credit card or debit card, then you authorize us to charge all amounts to the card number you provide to us. If your card payment is rejected or refused you will immediately pay us the amount due and provide us with an alternative card number for future payments. You represent and warrant to us that each card you use for payment to us belongs to you, and that you have the right to charge all such payments on the card(s).
- Availability, Delivery and Pickup
You may arrange to have your Products delivered, or you may choose to pick them up at our store. The details for both options are set out on the Site. Delivery and pickup times may vary, and will depend partly on when you place your order and when our store is open.
Delivery: We will only deliver Products to locations where liquor can be legally possessed or consumed. You are responsible for giving us your correct delivery details, and for making sure someone is present to receive the delivery at the specified delivery time. If you provide incorrect details, if no eligible person is present to accept delivery, or if we otherwise cannot complete the delivery then we reserve the right to apply a failed delivery charge, and we will arrange a new date and time for delivery with you.
Pickup: If you do not pick up the Products yourself at our store, the person doing so must have your written authorization or a copy of your purchase receipt.
Rules: All deliveries must be received, and all pickups must be made, by an individual who is at least 19 years old and who is not intoxicated (as determined by us in our sole discretion). We will require proper photo identification, and we reserve the right to refuse to complete a delivery or pickup if no identification (or improper identification) is provided or if the individual appears to be intoxicated.
