Please listen carefully to ensure your order is accurate. Quantities and brands ordered are read back before the value of the order and order number are provided.

Note: If you wish to avoid a lengthy read back, you may simply compare your total number of packages with the Customer Service Representative by requesting a package count. If you placed your order by fax, an order acknowledgement is automatically sent shortly after the order is keyed by customer service. If you do not receive a fax back in a timely manner please contact customer service at 1-800-661-2337

Emergency or Late Orders

Customers who occasionally find themselves in short supply of product or have missed their normal order day, must make special arrangements for an alternative delivery by contacting the BDL order desk. Where possible, we request these orders be for full pallet same brand or just draught.

Out of Stock Products
Occasionally customers may order Labatt or Molson products and, at the time of order placement, and find that all inventory has been previously sold.

Our customer service representatives will advise customers of the following, in these situations:

  • Offer the same product in a different package size.
  • Offer the same product in another package type (i.e. if no bottles, offer cans).
  • Offer a similar product in the same brewer product line.

Note: Our customer service representatives will not recommend which products customers should purchase outside of the circumstances indicated above.
