Prices change according to supplier and availability. All our stores order fresh vegetables several times a week and the individual store managers decide who to order from. The freight charges to our stores may differ, which changes the price, especially from small producers.
You need to place your order by 9pm, the night before the relevant delivery day.
No. Sorry! We are not allowed to send alcohol out with an order, because we have no control over who receives it and this would breach our licence.
At times, due to the organic nature of our stock, fresh produce may be out of season and imported goods may be unavailable. We will call you between 7am and 9am, to let you know if we cannot supply any items you have ordered. We may suggest possible alternatives, so please leave a number where we can contact you. If we cannot contact you- we will not substitute the unavailable product.
If you have any queries please call the Wellington city store on (04)3843314 or email email@example.com. When an order has been placed in the system your credit card account has a "pre-authorisation" placed on it. Pre-authorisation is a way for the DPS system to make sure there is enough money in the account to process the sale. This can appear as a charge but is not- it will be cleared after 7 days. If you have limited funds and need an immediate refund, call the Wellington store.
It means that a product is unavailable. We only stock fruit and vegetables that are in season, or stored in a controlled atmosphere. All our produce is grown in New Zealand with the exception of bananas and a few tropical fruits from the Pacific.
Maybe because the season has changed or perhaps a supplier has sold out of their wonderful stock. Sometimes the demand is just too great and a product sells out. This is the nature of the organics industry- seasonal and in demand!
