Returns / Credits:
All sales are considered final. However if you ordered an item by mistake, or donâ€™t like an item, you may contact our customer service department and request to return it for credit. Credit requests must be made within one week of receiving the goods, and returned promptly thereafter at your expense. You will receive a Return Authorization Number from a customer service rep, which must appear on the return address label to receive credit. A copy of the invoice, explanation for the return, and name of the customer service rep who authorized the return must accompany the returned item. A full credit will be granted only if the goods are returned in clean, resalable, original condition as shipped. No credits will be given if the product or its packaging is damaged, has stickers, or been changed in any manner. If goods are returned not as originally shipped, and they can be reconditioned, they will be subject to a 25% reconditioning fee. If they cannot be reconditioned to the original condition, no credit will be given. No returns on special orders.
We will give full credit for damaged, incorrect or defective merchandise if you contact us within one week from receipt.
