Returns and Warranty (Retail Sales)

Our Voluntary Returns Policy (Retail Sales) is offered in addition to the statutory rights conferred by the Australian Consumer Guarantee. To effect a return or exchange, goods the subject of claims must first be returned to the issuing uniform shop for inspection. Photographs or emails will not suffice. As our uniform shops operate independently of the schools they are located in, school office and administration staff will be unable to assist you with a return or exchange. Please complete the returns form in-store and provide your name, address and best contact (phone number or email address) with your item for inspection, along with the valid receipt for the item being returned.The way goods are used, worn, handled or cared for after purchase including the number of uniform items in circulation and frequency of ordinary wash and wear cycles will affect the durability and appearance of those goods and the general condition of any goods returned may affect any remedy which might otherwise apply. Parents & carers are asked properly assess their children’s items prior to returning to avoid making claims for repairs, refunds, exchanges or other remedies where the claim relates to: damage or wear caused by the user – whether accidental or otherwise, older uniform items presented with a more recent receipt for same , or, items which have been purchased secondhand. Refusal on any of these grounds may cause offence to be taken.  An alterations/repair service can often suggest an economical repair or refresh damaged or tired uniforms.

NEW ITEMS - 30 DAYS SIZE/COLOUR EXCHANGE OR REPLACEMENT

We will exchange for another size or colour within 30 days of purchase where items remain in their original condition (new, unmarked, unworn, unwashed, unaltered, unlabelled) and a valid itemised store-issued receipt with payment verification is presented. We will replace items in original condition (new, unmarked, unworn, unwashed, unaltered, unlabelled) deemed faulty on arrival if returned within 30 days of purchase accompanied by a valid itemised receipt with payment verification. Where an exchange for a different item is requested any difference in the value of items is payable at the time of exchange and any refundable difference will be issued as a store credit only. Please note items which are otherwise new but have been exposed to scents/odours (including perfumes, body/room sprays, laundry detergents etc), smoke or pets are not eligible for return.

If a manufacturing fault is claimed after items have been labelled, marked, used, washed or owned for a period longer than 30 days we reserve the right to inspect the item and determine the appropriate remedy or whether a remedy is due based on the item’s age, condition and purchase price. The item must be returned to the uniform shop for inspection and should be accompanied by a valid and reasonably recent itemised store-issued receipt with payment verification.
