Coupon Codes

From time to time you may recieve a coupon code from our website. These coupons are typically for a limited period of time and may be found in our ads, newsletter, etc. When adding items to your shopping cart, you can apply a coupon code if you have one to your order. Depending on the type of coupon, your order will be discounted appropriately. Note - coupons that discount individual cart items, will only discount items that are regularly priced (not already on sale). You will clearly see in your shopping cart items that are discounted through a sale or a coupon.

While each coupon may have its own set of terms and conditions, there are standard conditions that apply to all our coupons unless otherwise stated. They may only be used once per household. The coupon itself has no cash value and has an expiration date. When a coupon discounts the price of individually items, that product is no longer considered for customer appreciation rewards.

Customer Appreciation Card provides a customer appreciation card available to its online users. More information can be found by clicking here.

Out of Stock Items & Backordering

Our website is connected to our retail store point of sale system. This helps ensure that the most accurate inventory numbers possible are available to the website. Having said this, sometimes we go to get that piece of paper for your order and find that it is actually no longer there! In these situations the item is marked on your order and your order cost is recalculated. Once your order has been packed the proper order amount is charged and your order is shipped.

When a large item is missing or out of stock products are coming in shortly, we will contact you about your order. We are committed to working with you so that you get the products that you want in a timely manner. You may choose to remove the item(s) from your order, choose to hold shipment of your order until the items are available, or choose to backorder the item and have it shipped as soon as we get it in (additional shipping charges may apply).


If you feel an item is damaged or defective, please contact us immediately (within 7 days of receiving your order). If you wish to return or exchange an item, you must email first to request a refund or exchange. All returns and exchanges on unused and unopened items must be requested within 7 days of receiving the order and will exclude any and all shipping costs. You may not return open packages, paper, pens, or stickers.

Cash refunds will not be given. An exchange or store credit will be issued for any returns of unopened products.
