Our standard return policy for items bought is 3o days. This applies to both online and in-store purchases, except in case of sale items, which you have 14 days to return. You have 14 days for sale items bought online, unless otherwise stated. If the item is unused, in its original packaging and accompanied by a valid proof of purchase, we’ll offer an exchange in our store or a full refund. This does not affect your statutory rights.
What are my statutory rights?
In addition to our 30 day goodwill policy, you also have certain statutory rights in relation to the products you purchase.
Statutory Rights in relation to Faulty Products
The statutory rights in relation to faulty products apply to in store purchases, as well as online and telephone orders. For online and telephone orders, the timelines below will start from the date of delivery. For in store orders, the timelines below will start from the date of purchase. Your statutory rights are as follows:
Within 30 days of delivery/purchase of the product, you may exercise the right to a refund if the product purchased is not of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose or as described. After the 30 day period, but within six months of delivery/purchase and where the product is faulty, you are entitled to a repair or replacement. Where repair or replacement is not possible, or the repair or replacement does not resolve the fault, you are entitled to a refund.
After six months of delivery/purchase, similar rights exist, but only if you can prove that the fault was present at the point of delivery/purchase. In addition, if repair or replacement does not resolve the fault, we may make a deduction from any refund for fair use.
Returns taken to our stores will be processed the same day as your visit. The refund will be issued to your original payment card, usually within 3-5 working days. You can return items via your school, however the refund will not be processed until the stipulated delivery day when we can also collect your returns or exchanges. For instore returns and exchanges don’t forget to bring along your receipt.
