Why is my order arriving in separate packages?

We are working as fast as we can to get your order out to you. In some cases, orders with multiple items may be delivered as separate packages. When your order comes in, we look at each product and see where we might get the item/s from to get the products to you as quickly as possible. Sometimes, stock of particular items might be low in one distribution centre, so rather than making you wait for your full order, we send out what we can and source the other items from other distribution centres or dark stores. Thank you for your patience.

Why have I only received some of the items in my order?

We are working as fast as we can to get your order out to you. Orders with multiple items may be delivered as separate packages.

How long will it take from ordering to collection?

We will notify you by email when your order is ready to be collected. Generally it takes only a few days but there may be delays based on anticipated increased online orders.

Will contactless Click & Collect be any faster than normal delivery?

We can’t guarantee your contactless ‘Click & Collect’ order will arrive quicker than a home delivery order. This is because your order may originate from our online fulfilment centre and will need to be sent to your collection store. The days in between is the time it takes for your order to be picked and travel to your collection store.

I haven’t been notified that my order is ready yet. Why is it taking so long?

Our team is working hard to get all of your orders ready to collect as fast as possible. Some stores may not have the product in stock, so we will either be fulfilling your order from our central fulfillment centre or relying on our suppliers and their distribution network to help. Unfortunately, we are unable to transfer between stores during this time as we are focusing on using our fleet to move products from our distribution centre to stores where they are urgently needed.

Where there is a delay, we will endeavour to let you know. Rest assured, we are working hard to ensure we can fufill your order as soon as possible.

How will you notify customers that their orders are ready for collection?

We will email and/or text you when your order is ready at your selected store for you to collect.

How will customers be identified at the point of collection?

The person collecting the goods needs to show ID. Acceptable ID types are photo IDs such as:

  • - New Zealand driver's licence
  • - Passport
  • - 18+ card
  • - Photo Credit Card

Is the contactless 'Click & Collect’ option free?

Click & Collect is a completely free service!

Can someone else collect my order for me?

Someone can collect the order for you, but they will need to bring the order number and the surname of the person who ordered it. They may also be asked to present their ID so that we can note in our records who collected the order.

Can I cancel my click & collect order?

If you would like to cancel your click & collect order, please email our team at [email protected], be sure to quote your order number and we will cancel your previous order and issue you a refund. This will take 3-5 working days to appear in your account.
