Shipping Charges - Please see our Shipping Policy for Important Information!
The customer pays all freight and/or optional insurance charges, unless duly noted by the product description.
Additional Freight Charges: The small package carriers impose additional charges if they have to make changes to your shipping information after the order has been processed. To avoid these charges, please ensure that you provide accurate information and/or confirm shipping information at the time of your phone, web or mail-in order.
If you pick the wrong shipping method, we will contact you with the advised upon shipping method and ask for approval. If our calls and/or emails go unanswered, your order will be cancelled and refunded - minus a reshelving fee which totals 20% of your order less shipping.
If we make an error or send you the wrong product please call and we will correct the problem. We work hard to properly package your purchase to avoid damage during shipping. If items are damaged during shipment please notify the driver if possible and call us (1-800-310-2360) so that we can start a claim. Certain merchandise such as glass is fragile by nature and difficult to ship. Glass is shipped at your risk because shipping companies will not cover damage to glass. We do ship large quantities of glass with few problems.
All merchandise becomes your property as soon as we give it to the freight carrier. Please make sure you pick the proper shipping method when ordering your products.
Returns & Exchanges
Because of the perishable nature of the products in which we ship, we cannot by law accept returns of merchandise. All claims for spoiled products must be made within 24 hours of receiving your products and claims must be accompanied by pictures with temperatures of products for viewing by shipper. We will take the evidence provided from you and compare this with UPS shipping and delivery confirmations, prior to approving any form of a refund.
If you pay by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express we will credit your account and the credit will be reflected on your account statement.
If your order is damaged in shipping, please call us immediately, so we can start the damage claim process with the carrier. Pictures are very helpful when filing a claim! Please refer to the Freight Damages section for more information.
Due to the nature of some products, their use and the safety issues, the following product classes are non-returnable: consumables (food items), books, personal care products.
Pick Up Orders
We would love to see you in person. Our friendly and helpful staff are happy to share their Meat and food experience with you. You might even get to meet "The Meat Detective".

If you place an order over the internet or phone your order in to our office, we will try to have it packed, for you when you arrive. Please help us by checking orders carefully before you leave to be certain everything is correct as we don’t want you to get home and discover that we have made an error.
Web orders can be placed on our website at www.smgfoods.com. Web orders are processed every business day (Monday - Friday), except on Major holidays. Any orders placed after that time will be processed on the next business day. Once processed, web orders will be handled with the same high level of care and attention as any other order. We will try to contact you if there are any discrepancies on your web order (ie. mistyped billing address, backorders, etc.). Due to time constraints with shipping to certain areas, we only ship Monday through Thursday and do not ship perishable products over the weekend. Please see notes corresponding with each product description as to shipping methods allowed.
Because of errors in transmission, download, reliability of the utility companies’ networks and susceptibility to intercept through e-mail, all orders must be canceled over the telephone with a Customer Service Representative by calling 715-386-6628 or toll-free 1-800-310-2360. Orders cannot be cancelled once they have been shipped.
Special orders must be accompanied by a deposit of no less than 50% with the balance due prior to shipment or pick up.

As soon as back-ordered items come into stock, they will receive first priority handling. Customers may choose to ship in stock items ahead of back-ordered items, however, additional freight charges for back-ordered items are the customer’s responsibility.
