Exchanges and Returns

To help our customers during these tricky times, we have extended the period for post-free exchanges from 28 days to 45 days, but please be aware, social distancing rules has meant that we have a reduced work capacity in our delivery/returns department, so it may take a little longer than usual to process your order/returns.

Complete the section overleaf for the item you require as an exchange.
