Just a little note to let you know how we organise our Charlie Bears pre-orders.
Sometimes you might be disappointed to find that we are not taking pre-orders on a particular plush Charlie Bear, even though he or she isn’t retired and we are expecting more stock. The reason is that we know that we all hate to wait for our bears! If we take 30 pre-orders it’s very unlikely we’ll get enough of that bear on our next delivery to fulfill all of the orders. So some people have to wait until the next time, which could be a long time coming.
By limiting the number of pre-orders we take, we hope to ensure that as soon as we receive a Charlie Bear we will have enough to send to everyone with a confirmed pre-order. Then we’ll open the books again and take more orders.
No Deposits at Corfe Bears
Please note we never ask for a deposit for pre-orders and will only contact you for payment once we have a confirmed delivery date from Charlie Bears. So once you have paid you know the bear will be knocking at your door within days.
We also only take pre-orders for bears that we know we will definitely get!
I hope this makes our pre-order arrangements a bit clearer and reassures you that we have lots of bears on their way - we just don’t want you to be waiting for them forever!
