All orders are dispatched via Royal Mail. Delivery is free to UK addresses for all orders over £50 and only £3.95 for orders of Underwear, Cosmetics and Menswear. Orders for Toys and Homeware are £4.95 for delivery.
We aim to ship your goods on the day your order is received, up to 4pm, Monday to Friday. Alternatively, if you order after 4pm or over the weekend, your order will be dispatched the next working day.
Although most customers receive their goods within 3 - 4 days, please allow up to 5 working days for delivery.
We want you to be completely satisfied with your order so we offer a no-hassle return policy:
You are entitled to cancel your order and return the goods within 14 working days for a full refund. You can do this by contacting us via our contact form or telephone on 01626 333444 quoting the order number supplied to you. You can then request a FREE returns label which will be sent to you to affix on the parcel you are returning. Finally take your parcel to your local Post Office for posting and ask for a proof of posting receipt. Your refund will be paid upon receipt of returned goods. This cancellation policy does not affect your rights when we are at fault – for example, if goods are faulty. All returns must be in saleable condition.
We accept the following methods of payment and can only accept one payment type per order: Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Mastercard and Maestro.
Card payments are accepted via a secure payment server. When the order is placed on our website, credit card numbers are encrypted by our secure payment provider, Sage Pay. They are only decrypted after they reach our server. They are not held in clear text on any website.

Unwanted electrical equipment is the UK’s fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health.
To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with the crossed-out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment in the bin that has that marking.
