Refunds & Returns

Things not quite right? All good! We know that sometimes an item may not fit or be right.

If you're not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you can return your item(s) in-store or online within 30 days of the order receipt and we will be happy to provide you with an exchange, store credit or refund depending on your payment method and if you meet the below return conditions.

*Note: During lockdowns, our 30 Return Policy remains, however, we will not count the days that our stores are closed in this time frame for our customers.

Please note that PayPal orders cannot be refunded in-store. As PayPal is a heavily encrypted, secure payment method, our store systems are unable to process PayPal refunds.If you wish to return a PayPal order, please initiate an online return.
