Returns

We trust that you are happy with your purchase. However, if you are not completely satisfied, you may return the product for a refund (please note that there will be NO cash refunds made. If purchased and paid for by cash the product may be exchanged for another product if paid for by Credit or Debit Cards the Credit or Debit Card will be credited) or to be exchanged for another product within 7 days of purchase. After 7days, you can only return a product if such product is defective.

The Return Process below should be followed. Once you have a reference number please note that any product returned within this 7day period, for a refund or exchange for another product or gift voucher, must be unopened, in the same condition as when it was purchased and in the original packaging. Once the return is approved ensure that the product returned comply with the following:

  • package your products safely and securely for protection during transit whether returned by courier, mail or in person;
  • clearly mark your return reference number on the outside of the parcel bit not on the packaging of the product;

By logging the return first you allow us the opportunity to prearrange with our store staff ensuring a seamless exchange. In the event that you are unable to drop the product/s off at a store please make mention of this on the online return-exchange form. Our team will take this into consideration when planning your exchange.
