Store Purchases


A valid receipt is required for all returns and exchanges.


Returns: We will accept returns in our U.S. or Canada locations up to 7 days after your date of purchase for a refund in the form of your original payment. For purchases over $50 made with cash or debit cards not associated with VISA or MasterCard, we will issue a refund via a mailed check within approximately 21 days.


Exchanges: You can exchange items purchased at any of our U.S. or Canada locations up to 60 days after receipt of merchandise. If the exchange value is greater than the original price paid, the customer will pay the difference. If the exchange value is less than the original price paid, the customer will receive the difference in a store credit.

    Pack it up

    Step 3:

    Send it off

    Step 1: Obtain your RMA

    • 2. Click on the order, then select Initiate Return (RMA) next to the item you want to return in the Estimated Delivery column.

    Your RMA expires 7 days after the date it was created, so be sure to send your return within that time frame.

    If you are returning more than one item, you will receive an RMA and shipping label for each item.

    Step 2: Pack it up

    Print the prepaid return label and attach it to the box with the item you’re returning. You may package multiple items together if they have the same return address.

    Step 3: Send it off

    Once your return is properly packaged, take the package to any UPS-authorized location or drop box — visit ups.com/dropoff. Be sure to keep your receipt and tracking information.

    We will inspect and process your return within 14 days. You will receive a confirmation via email when your return has been processed.

    Please allow up to two billing cycles for the return credit to appear on your credit card statement. Credits are processed for the original cost of the merchandise plus tax—initial shipping and handling fees will not be refunded.
