Will I miss out on promotional prices if I shop online?
Thanks to our automated pricing system you will always pay the promotional price when shopping online. If for some reason the product is not listed under the most recent promotional price on the website, you have no need to worry, because it will appear at the promotional price in your cart.
What happens when products are out of stock?
