However, we monitor weather conditions across North America on an ongoing basis and ship your order only when it is safe to do so. If there are any significant delays in shipping as a result of the weather, we will advise you by email or telephone. However, www.marksmarket.ca cannot be held responsible for lost business or other claims due to weather-related issues.

If your shipment is time sensitive, there are other (more expensive) expedited shipping methods. Please also be advised that depending on the time of year (eg. the busy Christmas / Holiday Season), weather conditions can delay the shipping of some of our products.
Q: What happens if a product that I orderd is out-of-stock? A: With our state-of-the-art inventory control system, we are able to minimize our out-of-stocks. Products that are out-of-stock are quickly updated on our website as they occur. Wherever possible, the date when the out-of-stock is expected back in stock is listed. However, despite our very best efforts, unforeseen and unavoidable situations can occur. If an item is out of stock, we will try to contact you with a suitable substitute(s). We will try to hold the order as long as possible if we are unable to reach you promptly. Generally, we will hold your order until the next business day, at which point we will make a judgement call to substitute a similar product or short-ship your order. During the Account Sign-up process, please provide your daytime or cell phone number to expedite this process if it becomes necessary.
Q: What if my order is back-ordered? A: Unfortunately, we are unable to keep back orders in our system. If a product that you have ordered is back ordered, please re-order it on your next order. We try very hard to ensure that our website is current with all products that are in stock and out-of-stock. However, unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances (such as an unusually large order that depletes all stock) occasionally arise.
Q: I need to make a claim for shortages or damages. What should I do? A: If at all possible, all damages MUST be reported immediately to the Carrier Company (i.e. upon recipt of your order.) If this is not possible (because they were not noticed until the shipment was unpacked for example), you MUST make your claim for damages immediately upon discovery of those damages. Please DO NOT dispose of these items without authorization or your claim may be denied by the carrier. All short shipments or discrepancies MUST be reported immediately via phone (1-403-362-4461) or e-mail@firstname.lastname@example.org Regretfully, we are unable to process any claims for orders received more than 14 days previously.
Q: What is the shelf life of the products I order? A: Shelf Life indicated under each product is from the date of manufacture, not from the date you receive the order. We purposefully select products that a have a minimum shelf life of no less than 6 to 9 months. Many of our products have a shelf life significantly longer than 6 - 9 months.
