ABC Stores Shipping & Delivery
~ Delivering Aloha to your doorstep! ~
We ship your order using either the United States Postal Service (USPS) or FedEx, with orders going to Japan having the option to ship via Yamato Transport or Sagawa Express. These are the only couriers we will work with at this time. We do not work with any personal freight forwarding companies. If rising costs affect shipping charges, a surcharge may be included and will be reflected in your shipping charge.
Order processing is the amount of time it takes us to prepare your order for shipping. Orders are processed in the order they are received, with precedence being given to those who have chosen Expedited Service. Orders are not shipped or delivered on weekends or holidays.
If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed. This would typically occur during the holiday season, which ranges from October through December.
Orders placed during exclusive online promotions may also be impacted due to an increase in order volume.
The average order processing time is currently 10-14 business days from the date the order is made. Orders made via Expedited Service are processed 5-7 business days from the date the order is made.*
Pre-order are defined as products that are not currently in stock. By purchasing products through a pre-sale, you are securing the product to be shipped to you as soon as it becomes available. If an order is placed with a mix of pre-order and in-stock items, we may split your order into multiple shipments. If your pre-order is being shipped INTERNATIONALLY, your order will not ship out until we are able to fulfill your order in its entirety.
Pre-order products will have an estimated fulfillment date noted on their respective product page. The estimated fulfillment date will vary based on factors such as: Production times for preorder goods, transit of goods from our vendor (this will vary since goods are delivered by sea or air), custom clearance once goods are docked in Hawaii, and delivery of goods to our distribution center. Once the products arrive to us, we will fulfill all active and unfulfilled pre-orders at that time.Bulk orders of preorder goods will be shipped via USPS or FedEx. This includes all Domestic and International orders. International shipments: Customers are responsible for any destination charges, if applicable (e.g., customs-duty, inspection fees, province taxes).
Please contact our customer service center regarding additional inquiries about pre-orders. We can be reached by phone at 808-591-1063 or by email at email@example.com.
Out of Stock:
If there is a product in your order that is out of stock from our fulfillment center, we will work with our brick & mortar locations and our vendor partners to get the product in question. If this will not be possible within a reasonable amount of time, we will make every effort to contact you in order to offer a substitution, a cancellation of the item in question, or ask if you would prefer to defer delivery until the product may be acquired. Please ensure the contact information provided is accurate.
