Deliveries to businesses occur between 9 am and 5 pm, and deliveries to residences occur between 9 am and 7 pm.
2 pm CST Daily Cut-off Time
If your order was placed after 2:00 pm CST Monday-Friday, it will be processed the following business day.
Shipping Over the Weekend
If you are shipping a package to a warm weather destination over a weekend, your package may be held until the following Monday to ensure minimal time in transit.
Our Chicago and New York Purple Houses can messenger your order for Same Day Delivery starting at $19.95. Restrictions may apply. For local delivery within Chicago, you can place your order online (order by noon for delivery by 5pm, by 2pm for delivery by 7pm) and select Chicago Courier as your shipping method. Please call our Purple Houses directly for information or to place an order for local delivery. Visit our Boutiques page for store contact information.
Shipping chocolate is tricky business. We work hard to ensure that our chocolate is delivered fresh and in perfect condition. To reduce the risk of melted chocolate on orders in transit to warmer climates (70 degrees and higher), a $10.00 charge for ice packs may be added to your order during checkout.
We do not ship alcohol internationally or to the following states: AL, AR, DE, IN, KS, KY, ME, NH, MD, MA, MS, MT, NJ, OK, PA, SD, TN, UT. In all other states, delivery requires signature from recipient age 21 or over.
To inquire about shipping to countries other than the U.S., U.K. or Canada, please call a Chocolate Concierge at 1.888.301.9866. (YUMM). *We are unable to process international credit cards.
