Buying from a Registry

Buying a gift for an expectant mother and her baby is easier than ever! Complete registry lists can be viewed either online or in one of our stores.

How do I View a Registry?

Once you find the registry you're looking for, you can view the registrant's entire list of products. To determine what you'd like to buy, follow these simple steps:

  • Products available online are sorted into product categories to make it easier for you to find particular products.
  • Once you find a product you're interested in, you have several options:
    • To determine if the product requested is still needed, look in the column labeled "Desired". If the number is 0, then someone has already purchased that product. If it is greater than 0, you can still buy this product from the registry.
    • If you want a more detailed description of a product, simply click on the title and short description to take you to a product pop-up. You may add this product to your cart here, or return to the registry list to add it.
    • If you want to add a product on the registry list straight to your cart, type in the quantity you want to purchase in the box under the "Buy" column, and then click on the "Add to Cart" button.
    • When you finish shopping, you can go to your Shopping Cart and proceed through checkout. Keep in mind if you purchase something from a registry, that item will be sent to the registrant's address unless otherwise specified during Checkout.

What Address will the gifts be sent to?

People who purchase products online from a registry can opt to send them to any address; however, the default address is the one that the creator of the registry provided. Gift givers can see only the name associated with this address. For privacy reasons, the street address remains hidden. If you'd like to send a registry gift to a different address, simply add a new address before you select a shipping option during Checkout. Within an hour of the completion of the purchase, the product will move into the "Products Already Purchased" section of the registry.
