Click + Collect FAQs
What is Click + Collect and where is it available?
*If your product is not at stock at a certain branch, we will transfer it across our internal network within 1-2 days and have it ready for collection at your preferred store as soon as possible. Special order-in items may be subject to longer turnaround times of upto 1-2 weeks. Estimated pickup times will be displayed in the cart before you make the payment.
What about call and collect?
Our trade customers continue to get dedicated account managers and access to call and collect service which lets them pay with trade credit and arrange for either delivery or pick up in store. All other customers are also welcome to call and have their goods put aside to be picked up after payment in-store.
How will I know when my order is ready for collection?
An e-mail order confirmation will be sent to you immediately upon placing the order with all order details. Once we have your order ready for pickup, you will receive a confirmation SMS advising that it is ready for collection. Please wait for this SMS confirmation before arriving at your nominated store.
Why have I not received the SMS for my click+collect purchase?
Depending on the goods you purchased and the store you selected for click+collect, we may need to do an internal transfer or order in stock from the supplier. In all such cases, we will show you estimated pick up time during the checkout prior to payment. If you have any concerns about your order status after purchase, please contact the branch that you chose for click+collect along with the order details that are e-mailed to you as part of the order confirmation, immediately after placing the order.

Can someone collect my order on my behalf?
