14) PRICE AND PAYMENT
a) Our price. With half a century of experience in designing, making and selling Sofas means you can always find a dream Sofa at a great price at LLC. Wherever you place your order with LLC, all Products made to customers’ specifications are on sale at the same price in every store and on-line.
b) Prices are given on our Website in pounds sterling and include VAT. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the Product advised to you is correct. However please see clause 6 above for what happens if we discover an error in the price.
c) Very competitive normal prices. Our normal price is the non-discount price that a Product has been offered at, or will be offered at, in the near future. You can be sure that the normal price is very competitive because we design and make many of our Products in our own factories in the UK, avoiding the mark-ups of middlemen.
Our design and manufacture expertise also helps us to set very competitive normal prices because we use this knowledge when we’re comparing the price of our Products with similar Products from high street retailers, furniture stores on retail parks and independent stores: we know what a Sofa should cost and what goes into making it.
d) Special prices… for a limited time only. Throughout the year, we offer some of our Products to you at a discount on their normal price. The duration of the discount offer on any Product is never longer than the time the Product will be available at the normal price. However, as a result of the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic we may offer a limited number of ranges at special prices for longer than usual. This will ensure customers are given the opportunity to take advantage of these discounts.
e) Where the normal price is a future price (usually shown as an After Event price) this is the minimum price we intend to charge once the offer has ended. Please note the After Event Price may be subject to change.
f) Payment method. We accept payment with debit or credit cards. Payments can also be made electronically by bank transfer, and details will be provided on request. Depending on how you choose to pay We reserve the right to decline all or part of any payment for whatever reason and should this occur we will contact you.
