What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express) and some visa debit cards will work as well. Unfortunately, at this time we do not accept cash, debit or cheques.

  

Can I use my Stong's Rewards Card or my Stong's Gift Cards online?

Unfortunately, at this time our Rewards Card and our Gift Cards will only work in-store. Although our customers are not able to collect points online, we do offer a unique program online that's not available in-store and is actually worth more than the 1% in rewards points.
 
We offer an online school rebate program where we donate 4% of the order to the school of your choice. If you have a particular school you would like to have us donate to, during the checkout process, if you choose a school where it says 'Choose a school for our rebate program' we will donate 4% of your order to that school. This is located on the same page as where choose the date and time of the order.
 
In 2017 we had to increase our delivery fees because of the rising costs of fuel and labour but even after raising the delivery fees, the fee doesn't cover the entire expense of processing and delivering an order. Part of the decision of the raising the delivery fee to the amount that we did was based on online orders not receiving rewards points and that for many years, we've been donating a portion of the online orders to local schools. This way our customers benefit from a lower delivery fee and can continue to donate a portion of their order to help build our local community.

What does delivery cost for an online order?

We charge $10.99 for delivery to Vancouver, North Vancouver and West Vancouver. For Bowen Island, the delivery fee is 14.99.

  

What does a pick order cost?

We charge $4.99 for our pickup service with an order minimum of $50 before taxes, deposits and pickup fee. 

  

Why is there only an estimated total?

Because there can be small variances with weighed items, your order total is an estimated cost. When you order we preauthorize your credit card for the estimated total of your cart plus 20% to allow for such possible adjustments on weighed items. The final charge to your credit card will occur the day of delivery, and will only be for goods actually received.

Every effort is made by your personal shopper to get weighed items as close to the ordered amount as possible.

  

What is a Swap Buffer?

We add a 20% ‘buffer’ to the preauthorization on your card which allows you to add a few items to your order after it’s submitted or with your permission, we'll sometimes swap out items in your order that have become unavailable. This is not a fee, in the end you will only be billed for the items you have received.

  

Do you charge for bags?

We try not to use bags when packaging an order unless specially requested. If needed we offer paper bags for 0.15 each or plastic bags at 0.05 each.
