We try very hard to ensure that all items featured on this site are in stock or are available to order. However, due to the vast number of items featured, discontinued or out of stock items may not be removed immediately.

However, if you are unhappy with the substituted item, you can return the product at no extra cost to you. (Please see the 'Returns Policy' section).
