It is our policy that only one discount may be used per order and that discounts may not be combined. Please note that a discount may be accompanied by special conditions.
In the event an order is placed and multiple discounts have been used by the customer, we reserve the right to honor only the single highest discount and to charge the account accordingly. We will make the adjustment and email a revised sales order showing the difference in cost.
How to Use the Shopping Cart
When you find an item you want to purchase, add it to your cart by clicking the red "Add to Cart" button located on every page that describes items in detail. When you've added all the items to your cart that you want to purchase, proceed through the checkout process.
To view items that are already in your shopping cart, click on the "View Cart" link located at the top of every page.
Items Stay in Your Cart Until You Remove Them
For your convenience, our shopping cart keeps all items in it until you choose to remove them. This allows you to shop without worrying that your selections will disappear when you log out. When it's time to purchase, please review your cart carefully. Items that were added to your cart in the past will still be there when you check out.
To remove an item in the cart, go to "View Cart." Click on the remove "x" at the right side of the page.
Items Numbers May Change When Added to Cart
Item numbers for products may change when items are added to your shopping cart. Don't be alarmed if the item number on the description page doesn't match the item number in your shopping cart. If the names of the products match exactly, then you have the same item in your cart. Please check carefully to make sure that both the item description and finish option are correct.
Similarly, our website searching system works best if you search by the name of the item rather than by the item number. Our search engine will always find a product by name but will often be unable to identify items by number.
How to Check Out
Add the items you want to purchase to your cart. (To find your cart, click on "View Cart" at the top of any page).
Click the red "Proceed to Checkout" button.
If you're a new customer, click the "Continue" button under the New Customer heading to proceed with your order.
