[ONLINE] Why can't I select a pickup on Christmas or New Year's?
For special holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's; we have special menus with specific offerings for those holidays. When ordering for a specific holiday, please be sure to order from those specific menus--otherwise our website will not allow you to pickup on those holidays.
While not all pies listed on our regular menu are available to pre-order during the holidays, our more popular pies are listed on both menus. In these cases you still must order from the respective menu to pickup during certain dates:
- Orders to be picked up from NOW to December 17th: Regular Menu
- Orders to be picked up from December 20th - 31st: Holiday Menu
Can I pick up my pre-order on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve?
Yes. We will be "open" on both Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve for anyone that places a pre-order pickup on December 24th or 31st.
How Does Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve Pickup Work?
Pickups for Christmas Eve (and possibly New Year's Eve) will work the same as for Thanksgiving Week. We'll ask that you park and leave your vehicle and come to pickup your order from our orange tent in front of our shop.
Can I have my Christmas or New Year's order Delivered?
Yes. Elite Delivery will be providing delivery service for any orders placed on December 23rd, 24th and 31st. After placing your pie order for any of those dates, click on the Elite Delivery link in your confirmation email or see the information on our Pie Delivery page. [ LINK HERE ]
Can I walk in and purchase pies on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve?
No. All pies must be pre-ordered for the holidays and picked up at their specified pickup time.
Can I pick up my pre-order earlier than the pickup time I selected?
Possibly not. We do our best to ensure that your order will be ready for pick up a little bit before your scheduled pick up time. However, things can get busy and if you come too early we may have to ask that you come back at your scheduled pickup time.
Do I have to pre-pay for my Holiday Pie order?
Yes. Due to the logistical coordination involved as well as the large number of pies allocated for the holidays we must ask for payment beforehand.
Can I CANCEL or receive a REFUND for my order?
Yes! As long as you notify us before the end of business on the Thursdays before Christmas and New Year’s (respectively) you can change your pickup time or even cancel your order. If you paid by credit card, your card will be refunded for the items you are cancelling.
After those Thursdays all pre-orders will be locked in and ALL SALES ARE FINAL (no refunds will be given).
What is the last day that I can place a pre-order for Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve?
The final date to place pre-orders are:
- For Christmas Weekend: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 20 by 11:59pm
- For New Year’s Weekend: WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 28 by 11:59pm
Should pre-orders "sell out", we may close Holiday presale BEFORE the cutoff dates listed above.
What happens if I don’t pick up my order on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve?
We do our best to follow up with customers who may have forgotten to pick up their order. However, any orders NOT picked up on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve will be placed in a different home for the holidays and will not be eligible for store credit or a refund.
-General Info for December-
What FULL SIZE pies will you be offering during December?
Our featured pie of the month is Strawberry Guava. It's one of our most popular pies and we haven’t had it in a while so you should definitely pick one up! However, our most popular flavors (Passion Pear, Caramel Apple, etc.) will also be available throughout the month as well. As our menu changes and updates weekly, be sure to check our ONLINE MENU as it updates with our inventory & sales and shows the most up to date pie offerings.
As this is a busy time for us, our lower stocked pies may not be available as they sell out as the month goes on.
What MINI pies will you be offering during December?
Again, our ONLINE MENU is the best way to see what mini pies we're offering at any given time. From now till December 17th we'll be offering a larger assortment of mini pies to choose from. However, from December 20-31 we will only be offering four different mini pies: Caramel Apple, Strawberry Guava, Passion Pear, and Pineapple Whip.
Will you be offering MINI PIES or SPECIALS on Christmas Eve & New Year's Eve?
We will be running specials during the first two weeks of December if we have time. Look for our weekly email or social media postings at the beginning of each week for what our specials might be.
For mini pies, we will be offering a small assortment of mini pies in our holiday menu (à la carte).
Should I order a pie ahead of time or should I pick one up?
For Christmas and New Year's you MUST place an order in advance. For the safety and well being of our customers and family we cannot accommodate walk up sales during this holiday period.
When should I order my pies for the holidays?
Now! Fortune favors the bold. Good things don’t come to those that wait. We highly encourage you to place an order ahead of time so you can get the pies that you want for Christmas & New Year's.
