Terms and Conditions
Please read these product terms and conditions carefully as they affect your rights and liabilities under the law and set out the terms under which Happy Life Shopping Ltd. makes the products available to you ("Product Terms").
Prices and VAT
Please note that the prices on our Grocery website and app are guide prices only. The actual price you pay will be the price charged at the time your order is picked for delivery. The actual order value cannot be determined until the day of delivery because the prices stated on the website may vary either above or below the prices in-store on the day your order is picked and delivered.
When your order is delivered you may return any item and receive a full refund if you are unhappy with the price charged or for any other reason.
All prices are expressed inclusive of any VAT payable unless otherwise stated. The price of the items does not include the delivery charge which will be charged at the rate specified when you place your order.
If for any reason beyond our reasonable control, we are unable to supply a particular item, we will not be liable to you. When an item you have ordered is unavailable we will attempt to deliver a suitable substitute, unless you have asked us not to.
To ensure availability of all our products customers may be limited to a maximum number of items.
Your order is an offer to buy from us. A contract is only formed when we have despatched your order. At any point up until then, we may decline to supply the goods to you.
The Happy Life Shopping Ltd. grocery service is available for non-commercial and domestic use only. We reserve the right to refuse orders from businesses or that we consider are for commercial or other non-domestic concerns.
Delivery will be made to the address specified by you when you place your order.
We will deliver your order to the main entrance of the delivery address. At your request, our driver may carry your order into the delivery address, for example, to a particular floor in an apartment block or into your kitchen but only if: a. the driver has your permission and b. our driver believes that it is safe and practical to do as you request. We always reserve the right to deliver only to the main entrance of the delivery address.
For deliveries to customers at a business address, we can deliver to the ground floor communal entrance of your business, but unfortunately, we are not able to come to your desk. If your business has a shared ground floor reception, this is where we will deliver your shopping.
Please note that we deliver goods only to specified regions within the United Kingdom.
Delivery times will be agreed with you at the time of placing your order.
All goods must be signed for on delivery by an adult aged 18 years or over.
Happy Life Shopping Ltd. follows a "Think 25" policy when delivering age-restricted items, so if the person receiving the goods looks under 25, proof of age will be requested. If proof is not available and there is no-one of that age at the address when delivery is being made, the goods will be retained by the driver. If we attempt to deliver your order to the delivery address as arranged with you but there is nobody at the delivery address to accept your order, the driver will leave notification of attempted delivery and you will need to contact our Customer Service Centre to re-arrange delivery (see below for contact details).
In these circumstances, if we have to return to deliver the goods, a further charge may become payable provided that delivery is attempted at the agreed time.
Whilst we make every effort to deliver all your goods in the agreed time, we will not be liable if we fail to do so in part or in full due to circumstances beyond our control.
Delivery items will not be packed in carrier bags. For certain products, such as packaged raw meat, we’ll still need to use red hygiene bags. You can hand these back to the driver or the colleague at the collection point to be recycled.
Small, loose fruit and vegetables, such as loose apples, will be put into a small clear bag and then placed directly into the tray, not a paper bag. Larger produce, like melons, will be placed directly into the tray without any bag.
