In-Store Exchanges and Returns

General Exchange Policies

  • Items can be exchanged with proof of purchase if they are undamaged in their original, resalable condition (with tags or in original packaging).
  • Damaged, defective, or open items are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Please Note: Any difference that needs to be credited to your account for an exchange can take up to 7-10 business days to process. After we apply the credit to your card, the card-issuing bank can take several weeks to apply this credit to your account. This policy will be specific to your card-issuing bank, so please inquire with your banking institution with concerns about delayed credits.
