If it is not available we will issue a full refund for the item as if it has been returned to us. 

Faulty Goods

Faulty goods can be replaced at any time. However, the final decision on whether the item will be replaced rests with the manufacturer and it is worth noting that this can take a significant amount of time, especially if the item needs to be shipped overseas. Pop in the store to speak to a staff member or contact us first by emailing [email protected]. If contacting us by email please include photographs and proof of purchase and our shop team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Buying someone a gift? – Please read! 

We’ve extended the Return periods to help you find that perfect gift! 

All full-price items that would qualify for a return (in line with our standard returns policy) and were purchased in-store or online from October 1st 2023 are able to be returned for an exchange to account credit between December 26th and January 31st. We know when buying a gift sometimes you need to change the size or colour, and that’s okay so we are extending our returns times to allow you to make sure you can have a stress-free Christmas and exchange if it isn’t quite right! 

In order to process this, we will need one of the following the original receipt, e-receipt, online order confirmation or delivery note. Please note that if the person returning is not the original purchaser we cannot refund it as it wouldn’t be to the original card. We will exchange for any other product to the same or above value asking the difference to be paid. If the exchange is to below the difference will be added as credit to that customer’s account. 

Gift vouchers also purchased between October 1st and December 26th will also enjoy an extension on their dates and will be able to be used in-store up until the 30th of June 2024.
