Where did it all begin?

Freddie's began from the owner walking around the playground selling sweets, cans and all other sorts of confectionery from his rucksack for a small profit over 15 years ago. This passion grew over time and then led on to being an online business. From that a personal delivery service began where customers could order sweets and then our drivers would deliver (this does not occur any more). A move back to Bristol then triggered the opening of our first shop which then snowballed to today with us currently having 3 different shops spotted across Cornwall as well as our highly successful online store.

How do you use our site?

Shopping at Freddie's is really easy. As you browse through our store you can click to add items to your basket. When you have finished shopping simply proceed to checkout where we will take all the details we need from you to fulfil your order. Once order is placed you will receive an order confirmation email from us; this is sent immediately. If you experience any difficulties using our site, whether you are buying or just looking, please do not hesitate to get in contact and we will happily look into it.

How will your Items be Dispatched?

We are not one of these companies in which try to make extra profit through bumping up your postage and packaging costs. As per the dispatch email we send customers when their order leaves us, we strongly recommend that you contact us if your order has not been received. Please refer to your dispatch email and this will include instructions of how to do so. When packing our products we make every attempt to ensure that they will arrive in perfect condition by packaging them as best as possible; we do endeavour to use recycled boxes to cut down wastage and to increase reuse of cardboard. If any of your products are broken/damaged and cannot be used then notify us within seven days of receipt.

How do you Store your Sweets?

Upon receiving your order to ensure that your products stay in the best condition possible, we strongly advise that you follow the specific storage instruction for each individual product and consume within the best before date.
