Substituting a grocery item means replacing it with a similiar item that we choose for you.
We give you the option of allowing for substitutions for individual grocery items:
- If you WANT us to substitute a grocery item that might be out of stock then simply check the substitution box for that specific item.
- If you DO NOT WANT us to substitute a grocery item then simply leave it unchecked and if it is out of stock we'll remove it from your online grocery order.
You might not care if we ship a can of Bush's Pinto Beans in place of our generic can of Pintos. But then again you might. Some customers would whip us with a wet noodle if we dared to substitute a hard to find grocery item they have ordered! Logical substitutions is the rule here. A can of diced tomatoes for a can of diced tomatoes. No funny stuff, just plain common sense ...
Bottom line? Just leave that substitution box unchecked if you don't want a substitution and check it if you do!
