I used to feel a sense of guilt whenever I’d take a huge chunk of a certain product from the shelves. Now I special order an item I plan on buying in large quantities!

If you’ll be buying more than 10 of an item, consider calling the store and placing a special order. The store will order in the amount you would like, and you can pick it up and pay for it when it comes in. Simply follow these steps for successful special ordering:

1. Determine the number of products you would like to buy, and make sure to have the right amount of coupons you’ll need.
2. Call or visit the store to set up a special order. Request to speak with a manager, preferably the freight manager. State that you want to special order __ number of products, and specify the applicable size and flavor/variety you would like. You’ll want to call the day before or the day the sale starts so you’ll have enough time to get the products in.
3. The manager will take down your name and number and give you the probable delivery day. Make sure you also write down the manager’s name and the stated day.
4. When you go to the store, go to customer service and let them know you’re there to pick up your special order. Once you have your items, you can check out like you normally would.
