Substitutes / Unavailable Items


Please note that our business operates mainly as a high street shop. We do our best to keep records on this website up to date and as accurate as possible. Sadly our shop is too small to make it financially sustainable to have live database sync between our EPOS and website store.

Therefore it might happen that on the day you place your order, someone will buy some or all items you order through our online store.


It is highly unlikely, but sadly we are unable to fully rule out such possibility. We implemented a number of internal policies to prevent that from ever happening:

  1. We put for online sales items, which we stock large quantity of OR we limit availability online to be sure we can meet everyone's needs.

  2. We update our online store details daily (except of Sundays).

  3. We immediately start gathering all items bought through our online store to remove them from the shop floor.


Moreover whenever incident with unavailable items happens, we will be in touch with you ASAP by email or phone, so please check it some time after you place your order just in case.

We will offer the following to make up for such inconvenience:

  • Whenever possible we will offer you a replacement as good or better than the item you ordered (At the same price to you. You will not have to pay anything more).

  • If possible and if you agree to, we will restock the item from our wholesalers and post it as soon as we receive it (usually deliveries arrive to our shop in 2 to 3 business days).

  • If we cannot restock the missing item or you do not want to wait till we have it back in stock or we cannot substitute missing item or you do not want a substitute, we will refund you for the missing items.

  • You have a right to cancel your order in full and receive full refund (including any postage fee) if you are not keen to receive substitute or wait till we restock.

  • As a little gift to brighten up the day we will offer you a 10% off voucher for your next purchase for all our stock except ink cartridges for printers and printing service to be used online or in our shop.
