If you share a link to your store (preview link if password-protected)  it will be easier to diagnose. Most probably, your font does not have these characters. In this case, browser will use a fallback font to  render them. 

So, check the font you're using whether it actually contains those symbols.

Voveriškiai LT Lietuviški mėsos gaminiai (myshopify.com) The big letters are fine, smaller ones (exemple itiems) are broken.

Yep, looks like the font does not have those symbols -- see the diagnostics at right bottom corner of the image. 20 glyphs in Karla and 2 glyphs in Helvetica.

My recommendations: 

  1. Try different fonts from the library to see if any of them has required glyphs;
  2. Talk to Shopify to confirm what fonts may have it;
  3. Ask a a developer to set you up with with custom fonts;
  4. Finally can always fallback to system fonts in "theme settings"=> Typography; use those generic Sans-serif/Serif/Mono (bonus -- faster page loads)
    Your visitors system fonts should have those glyphs.
