Please read and check your order carefully before submitting it. However, if you need to correct any errors you can do so before submitting it to us. When you place your order at the end of the online checkout process, we will acknowledge it by email. This acknowledgement does not, however, mean that your order has been accepted or processed and that any product’s price or availability is confirmed.
We may contact you to say that we do not accept your order. The reason for the non-acceptance of your order may include, but are not limited to, the Goods being unavailable; our inability to authorise your payment; your inability to buy the Goods from us; our inability to sell the Goods to you; there being a mistake on the pricing or description of the Goods; illegal or suspicious activity, vague delivery address, natural disasters, potential threats to us and our servants and/ or agents. If an order has not been accepted where payment has already been made, we will refund you the full cost of the transaction.
We reserve the right at any time after the receipt of your order, to supply less than the quantity you ordered, based on the quantity of the Goods that are available at the time of placing the order. Such reduction in quantity shall be communicated to you. If payment has already been made, we will refund you the full cost of the Goods not supplied to you.
We will only accept your order when we email you to confirm this, at which point a legally binding contract on the basis of these Terms and Conditions of Sale will be in place between you and us.
After an order has been accepted by us, you may not without our written consent and payment to us of all charges, expenses, commissions and costs owed to or incurred by us, make changes to the quantities or specifications of items or cancel any whole or part of any order.
Whenever you place an order we’ll do our very best to provide all the items that you’ve ordered. Sometimes, one or more of your items may not be available when we pick your order, because the item has gone out of stock, for example. If you’ve chosen to allow substitutions, we will offer you a suitable alternative. We choose substitutes very carefully and offer what we believe is the most appropriate alternative to the product you’ve ordered.
If we offer substitutes we’ll make this very clear by calling you or sending you an email detailing substitutions once your order has been confirmed.
If you are not happy with our substitutions please contact Massy Stores (Barbados) Ltd. at the phone number at the start of this document within 24 hours of your order confirmation.

We cannot guarantee immediate or next day delivery. Our typical delivery time is between 24 – 48 hours after confirmation of an order. We deliver products to most locations in Barbados via our partner HopScotch or through our shuttle service. Any time or date for delivery specified by us is only an estimate and we assume no responsibility for and shall not be liable for any loss or damage or other consequence of any delay or inability to deliver, whether or not such loss or damage was made known to us. An e-mail will be sent to you when your order is out for delivery.
In no case shall we be liable for any special, consequential, incidental, indirect, or liquidated damages, losses or expense (whether or not based on negligence) arising directly or indirectly from delays or failure to give notice of delay or inability to deliver.
Delivery of Goods
The delivery time frames specified by us may be delayed if incorrect information is given or due to any force majeure or security risk such as but not limited to poor infrastructure, flooding, hurricanes, delivery through crime “hot-spots” or delivery to unsafe areas deemed by us or the carrier. In such cases this will either delay your order delivery time or may result in your order being cancelled us. In either case, we will refund any payment which you have already made for the Goods. You agree that we will not be responsible or held liable for such delays in delivery or cancellation.
It is your responsibility to ensure that someone is available at your delivery address to collect the Goods. We require someone to sign for your order on delivery.
We may request that the person taking delivery of your order provides us with identification to help us confirm they have your authorisation to accept delivery of your order. This may include asking to see an item of your photographic identification (such as a passport or driving licence) and/or the bank card which was used to make payment.
If nobody is at home when we attempt delivery, or the person at home is unable to satisfy our identification requirements, we will try to contact you by telephone.
For reasons of security and food safety, we will not leave your order unattended at your address. We will not be responsible for any losses you may incur as a result, for example, contamination as the result of any change in temperature in respect of items which need to be kept chilled or frozen.

Inspection and acceptance
Upon delivery you shall inspect the Goods for defects and non-conformance. Any claim that the Goods are not in accordance with the specifications shall be reported to us immediately. Failure to notify us of any defects in the Goods within one (1) business day after delivery will constitute conclusive proof that the Goods delivered were received without defect or damage which would be apparent upon a reasonable examination of the Goods and irrevocably accepted by you. After such acceptance, you shall have no right to reject the Goods for any reason or revoke acceptance, save for any such right you may have under the “Returns” section below or at law.
Title and Risk
Risk of loss or damage to the Goods shall pass to you upon tender of the Goods to you at delivery.
