I'm going to get guppies tomorrow but I ordered their food online (omega one fresh water flakes) and it won't be here till Wednesday. Will they be okay till then? I figured it might even be a good thing. They can get whatever gunk the pet store was feeding them out of their system and then I can start them on a good diet.

They can actually go weeks with out eating. It depends on how long it has been since they've eaten if they will be okay with no food or not. I'd see if you can get a little package of food at the pet store if they are looking kind of skinny.

They'll be fine until Wednesday! Fish can go weeks; a few days will be fine.
