(a) beginning upon the submission of the buyer's offer; and
(b) ending at the end of 30 days after the day on which the goods come into the buyer's physical possession or the physical possession of a person identified by the buyer to take possession of them (or, if the contract is for delivery of multiple goods, lots or pieces of something, 30 days after the day on which the last of those goods, lots or pieces comes into the buyer's physical possession or the physical possession of a period identified by the buyer to take possession of them).
