Here at Grandpa’s we want to make sure you get your sweets as quickly as possible and also as safely as possible and therefore use either Royal Mail or a courier service depending on the weight of your order, or in some cases the size of your items.
We aim to send your order within 2-3 working days (excluding bank holidays) of you placing it with us (if we can we’ll do it sooner!) and then post your item to you using one of the following options:
- Royal Mail (1st Class) – this aims to have your sweets with you in 1-2 working days from date dispatch (includes Saturdays) – we use this for items up to 500g
- Royal Mail (2nd class) – this aims to have your sweets with you in 2-3 working days from date of dispatch (includes Saturdays) – we use this for all items from 500g when using Royal Mail however if you need your parcel quicker please contact us direct and we’ll be happy to help.
- Courier – where items are coming to you via a courier service your item(s) will be with you in 1-2 working days* (from date of dispatch).
- Local pick up – your order will be available to collect from our Wall Heath shop in 48 hours from when you order. We will send you an email to confirm when it is ready for collection.
