Cheese of the Month shipments arrive on the second Thursday of the month, while Pair and Meat of the Month arrive on the third Thursday of the month. If you will be unable to receive your cheese for any reason, please contact us at least 24 hours before the expected delivery date at firstname.lastname@example.org or toll-free at (888) MY-CHEEZ to delay your shipment. * Please note: if you specify a ship date for your order during checkout it will not apply to your Cheese of the Month selection!
- Physical Gift Cards can be purchased online and will be mailed to you. These cards can be used in our stores, for classes at our stores, for Murray's Catering and at our restaurant, Murray's Cheese Bar. To use these cards for mail order, orders must be placed by phone.
- The cards are sent by regular US Mail and can take up to 2 - 3 weeks to arrive. If you need the card to arrive more quickly, please let us know and we'll upgrade your gift card to be sent by FedEx for $10.
- Unless otherwise stated, discounts aren't available on gift cards.
CREDIT CARD APPROVALS
When your order is placed, your card will be authorized for the amount of your order. The charge to your card is not actually made until we ship the order. It may appear as though there are two charges, but there's one authorization and one charge. If your statement arrives and there are in fact two charges, please contact us immediately at 888.MY.CHEEZ. However, the majority of authorizations clear themselves within a matter of hours following the actual one-time charge made to your card when the order shipped.
Your cheeses are packaged in insulated cartons and fitted with ice packs to ensure quality standards for up to 48 hours. Items ordered together are not necessarily shipped together.
Please note that to ensure quality, all cheese is cut to order. Cutting cheese is an art, not a science. We do our very best to cut as accurately as possible.
You'll be given the option at checkout to allow Murray's to make substitutions to your order in the event that an item is out of stock. Due to seasonal availability and supply limitations, we may need to substitute items within gift selections. We always compose gift selections with alternative ingredients of equal or greater quality.
