Inventory Availability
Universalfws.com cannot guarantee inventory availability. Due to ongoing sales, available inventory at the time of purchase may not actually be in the warehouse when the order is recorded, because another order for the same product may have preceded it.
Additionally, in the event that a product or products has/have been ordered and are out of stock, Universal Fine Wine & Spirirts will make every effort to fill the order. However, in the event that the product(s) can not be filled, Universal Fine Wine & Spirits will contact the purchaser to ascertain whether or not to complete the order with the available items.
