How Many Times Can I Visit?

Currently, three times per month (a home delivery counts as a visit).  This policy can change and we can make exceptions if appropriate.

The first time you visit, you need to bring a proof of address (e.g. a recent utility bill or bank statement). A driver's license is acceptable provided it shows your current address.
