Q: What are my options if the merchandise I desire is not available?

A: In the case that you order a product that is out of stock, we will automatically place your request on backorder. If you ordered other merchandise, you will be notified which items from your order are on backorder. Once the manufacturer sends us your product, we will ship your order immediately. The Iowa Hawk Shop will never charge you until the point that your product has actually been shipped from our warehouse. To cancel a backorder please call us at 1-800-HAWK SHOP, email us at hawkshop@uiowa.edu, or fax us at (319) 337-4606.
