There will be a delay in the dispatching of your order normally in 3-4 days but up to 6 working days.
All items on the order will be shipped together, regardless of how they are fulfilled.
There is a chance that the supplier is currently out of stock, further delaying your order.
There is a chance that the item has been discontinued, and is no longer available from the supplier.
Active Stride will contact you if our supplier unable to supply the product, or it will be delayed beyond initial estimates.
Why does Active Stride provide this option?
Active Stride is a real store days a week and carries stock that you can touch and feel before purchasing. Many online only merchants don't carry stock, don't have a retail location open at convenient times, and order it from their suppliers after you've paid them. Active Stride wants to be able to provide access to savings for customers who don't require the full service of a retail store. Full warranty and exchange services are still available in store for items purchased online, with or without this option selected.
