Web Order/Special Order Disclaimer:

We all love Vinyl, CDs, and Film, and so much comes out in limited editions and quantities. For your web orders, pre-orders, and special orders we will attempt to source as much inventory as possible to fulfill as many orders for as many customers as possible.

In some cases orders will be allocated to one per customer to ensure we are helping as many customers as we can. Under some circumstances, our distributors may cut the inventory we do order, or they will have sold out completely. Please understand that due to the nature of limited vinyl a pre-order is a spot in-line to potentially secure an exclusive release. We do not guarantee each and every pre-order will be fulfilled, this is why we do not take payement upfront. Please see PAYMENT section below.

Please be aware we reserve the right to cancel orders under ANY circumstances. Thank you!

CAUTION ABOUT ORDERING IN BULK!!! Bulk orders are multiples of one item. We are not a wholesaler. Due to our fluctuating pricing and inventory controls, we reserve the right to cancel or decline orders if listed prices do not match our cost.

CAUTION ABOUT PRICES FOR WEB ORDERS: As it applies to bulk orders, we fluctuate our pricing depending on our inventory or condition of items.

Items that are marked down will be cancelled if cost exceeds the listed price.

PAYMENT. Due to the limited nature of some releases here’s another quick disclaimer:

We do not charge your payment method until we are able to secure the appropriate inventory to fulfill your order. We only charge your payment method as we are processing your order for shipment. Please make sure your payment method is valid at the release date, when we are due to receive your special order or at the time of your order if we have the item in-stock.

Thank you for shopping with The Sound Garden!
