[ONLINE] Why can't I select a pickup during Thanksgiving Week?
For holidays such as Thanksgiving, we offer a special menu with specific offerings just for that week. When ordering for Thanksgiving Week, please be sure to order pies from the Thanksgiving Pie menu--otherwise, our website will not offer a pickup during Thanksgiving Week.
While not all pies listed on our regular menu are available to pre-order during Thanksgiving, our more popular pies are listed on both menus. In these cases, you still must order from the respective menu to pickup during specific dates:
- Orders to be picked up from NOW - November 18: Regular Menu
- Orders to be picked up from November 21 - 23: Thanksgiving Menu
Can I pick up my pre-order on Thanksgiving Day?Yes. We will be "open" on Thanksgiving Day for anyone that places a pre-order for pickup on Thursday, November 23.
Can I walk in and purchase pies on Thanksgiving Day?
No. For the safety of our customers and our family, all pies must be pre-ordered for Thanksgiving Week (November 21-23) 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 pickup 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 order carry out bags for my Thanksgiving order?
Yes. In 2021 the City & County of Honolulu mandated that business offer non-plastic carryout bags for sale to customers. For orders of two pie boxes or more, we HIGHLY recommend ordering a 'Carryout Bag' along with your order to help expedite pickup.
Do I have to pre-pay for my Thanksgiving order?
Yes. Due to the logistical coordination involved and the large number of pies allocated for Thanksgiving, we must ask for payment beforehand.
Can I CHANGE, CANCEL, or receive a REFUND for my order?
Yes! As long as you notify us before the end of business on Saturday, November 18 (the Saturday before Thanksgiving), you can make changes to your order or even cancel your order.
After Saturday, November 18, all customer 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 Thanksgiving?
Tentatively the deadline for Thanksgiving pre-orders is:
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15 by 11:59pm
Should Thanksgiving pies "sell out," we may close Thanksgiving presale BEFORE November 15.
What happens if I don't pick up my order on Thanksgiving Day?
We do our best to follow up with customers who may have forgotten to pick up their orders. However, any order NOT picked up on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 23, will be placed in a different home for Thanksgiving and will not be eligible for store credit or refund.
-General Info for November-
What FULL SIZE pies will you be offering during November?
Our featured pie of the month is Pumpkin Custard. If you love pumpkin pie or custard pie, you should definitely pick one up! However, our most popular flavors (Passion Pear, Caramel Apple, and Pear Peach) will also be available throughout the month as well. As our menu changes and updates weekly, check with us early in the week for what we’re offering.
As this is a busy time for us, our lower stocked pies or other pies not on our Thanksgiving menu may not be available as they sell out as the month goes on. If you’d like a pie that’s not on our Thanksgiving menu, many of our pies are available to take home frozen to bake at home. We highly encourage you to pick up these pies frozen sooner rather than later.
What MINI pies will you be offering during November?
Our mini-pie menu changes weekly as certain mini pies sell out and different mini pies are restocked. If you’d like to pick up mini pies, please check our menu at the beginning of each week. If you’d like to place a large order of mini pies (20 or more of one flavor), we encourage you to place an order in advance.
Will you be offering MINI PIES or SPECIALS during Thanksgiving Week?
Because of our production schedule and the increased demand during Thanksgiving Week, our sole focus will be on producing as many full-size pies as we can.
Should I order a pie ahead of time or should I pick one up?
For Thanksgiving 2023 you MUST place an order in advance. In an effort to fulfill as many orders as possible, we are unable accommodate walk up sales during Thanksgiving Week.
When should I order my pies for Thanksgiving?
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 Thanksgiving Week.
