Our Guarantee & Policies
The mission of Sweets & Geeks is to be valued as the neighborhood’s favorite candy & game store by bringing the nostalgic candy, soda & pop culture of yesteryear to the customers of today. Inspiring friends & families to spend more time together!
Our goal is to make online ordering as easy as possible, and to provide shipping options to accommodate each customer's needs. If you ever have any questions concerning our products, shipping methods, timelines or anything in-between, call us: (330) 952-3017 or Email Us: email@example.com
Sweets & Geeks ships year-round to locations within the United States. We ship from our retail location, Sweets & Geeks, in Medina, Ohio, in between Akron and Cleveland.
We offer Free Shipping on orders over $100 for all US orders being shipped within the contiguous 48 states.
For all other orders under $100, shipping rates are automatically calculated by the shipping carrier during the checkout process, before you confirm your order. Rates are based on weight, geographic location and shipping method. These rates are set by the carrier, not by Sweets & Geeks.
While most orders will be delivered sooner, please allow up to 5 business days for your order to arrive once it has been fulfilled.
If you’d like to receive your order faster, you may select an expedited shipping option during checkout.
Hot weather may influence the condition of the received product. Shippers do not always air condition their cargo. Melted candy does not qualify for a damage claim.
When will my order ship?
We know you’ll be waiting at the mailbox for your goodies, so we ship fast -- usually the same day! Orders placed by midnight usually ship the next business day, pending credit card verification. But please allow us up to two days during busy seasons. Orders are not processed on holidays.
When will my order arrive?
Items shipped should arrive within 5-9 business days. Alaska and Hawaii please allow 3 additional days for shipping. Items shipped via expedited delivery should arrive within 2-4 business days.
- Sweets & Geeks reserves the right to use a different delivery option, regardless of option selected by customer, to ensure items are delivered in the quickest manner possible.
- Not all shipping options are available for all orders/areas.
- You will be contacted if an item you order is out of stock causing a delay in shipping commitments.
- If you need your order by a certain date, please contact us before placing your order so we can advise you on the best delivery option. Please be advised that regardless of which shipping method you select, we cannot guarantee when your order will arrive and will not issue refunds for orders not delivered by a certain time.
- Sweets & Geeks cannot be responsible for delays and late arrivals. Once a shipment leaves our store, we cannot control the speed and/or accuracy with which the carrier completes the delivery.
- We will send out a confirmation email notice as soon as your order ships. A tracking number will be provided for all shipments.
- We recommend that shipments be sent to a business, if possible, where someone can sign for the package and it is not exposed to outside conditions. Parcel carriers will leave packages outside the door if no one is home.
Out of Stock Items
We make every effort to maintain our inventory and mark items “out-of-stock” or remove out-of-stock items from our website, but there may be a time that more items are sold during the day than we have on our shelves. If your order contains an item that is out of stock, we will ship the remainder of your order and adjust your order and shipping costs accordingly. Should this occur, we will contact you directly via email to alert you of the change.
We reserve the right to limit product quantities on orders for products.
Please contact us immediately if there is a mistake with your order so we can correct it as soon as possible. We work hard to ensure you order is filled accurately, but mistakes can occur.
If your product arrived damaged or you have any problems with your order, please retain ALL packaging, including the shipping box, packing material, packing slip, and product packaging. Then, please call us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org within 48 hours of receiving your order to discuss any issues or questions. Our customer service is available Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m., and weekends from 12 - 5 p.m. Phone: 330-952-3017. We will request that photographs of the damaged product and all packaging materials be emailed in order to assess the situation and damage prior to initiating a solution.
Please be careful to provide us with an accurate shipping address to ensure a speedy delivery. Please note we cannot be responsible for an order shipped to the wrong address due to an incorrect address entered by a customer. Please make sure the shipping address is complete with floor, suite number, apartment number, etc.
Because candy is a perishable item, and in compliance with Food & Drug Administration (FDA) policies, Sweets & Geeks cannot accept any candy for a refund unless it has been damaged in transit (excluding damage due to weather conditions).
Before finalizing your order, please consider the following:
- Taste -- Manufacturers sometime change recipes or items don’t taste like we remember them. Gummies, taffy, chocolate, etc., will vary in texture, consistency, firmness and flavor with different brands and manufacturers.
- Color -- Candy is often made in small batches and color may vary from time to time. Color may also look different in person than on your computer screen.
- Mistakes and Cancellations -- Check your order carefully before hitting the submit button. As soon as you finalize your purchase, we are working on your order and it cannot be canceled. If you do wish to cancel your order, please call us. If your order has not been completed, we will be happy to assist you in a cancellation. However, if the order has already been fulfilled, we will be unable to cancel it. Of course, if we make any mistakes with your order, we will take full responsibility and work with you on correcting the problem.
Sweets & Geeks (“We”) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
