Refund Policy

REFUNDS AND RETURNS

ONLINE PURCHASES:

We request that you try and return unwanted or unsuitable items within 14 days, we have a very fast turnover of stock, and as a small independent business it would really help us out!

Please notify us to let us know you will be returning any items within 14 days of receiving your order, you then have a further 14 days to send it back to us.

All returns must be posted or brought back to the shop within the returns period, any returns outside of this time may not be accepted. 
Please return to:
Chester Boutique Online Returns
26 Bridge Street
Chester
CH1 1NQ


To be eligible for a refund, your item must be in the same condition that you received it, unworn or unused, and in any original packaging. You’ll also need the packing slip, proof of purchase, or include a note with your order number, name and contact number. When we have received your return we will process the refund within 48 hours (Monday-Friday). 

As a small business we try to keep delivery costs as low as possible. At this time we are unable to offer a free returns service, buyer would need to pay return postage.

You can always contact us for any return question at customercare@chesterboutique.com.

Our online returns policy is in line with the distance selling regulations.

IN STORE PURCHASES: 

For items purchased in store there is a 7 day exchange or credit note policy. We have a very fast turnover of stock and it moves very quickly, so we ask that any unsuitable items are returned to us as soon as possible.

For in store purchases, where there is an opportunity to try the products, we do not provide refunds, it is exchange or credit note only (credit notes can be used online).

Please contact us if there is a problem with returns.

Faulty items can be returned for a full refund.

Damages and issues 
Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right. Faulty items will be replaced at no extra cost, or refunded in full, including return postage costs.

Exceptions / non-returnable items 
Certain types of items cannot be returned, including underwear, swimwear and earrings and perfume oils for hygiene reasons. Please get in touch if you have questions or concerns about your specific item. 

Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on gift cards or vouchers.

Exchanges 
The fastest way to ensure you get what you want is make a separate purchase for the new item and return the other for a refund.

As a small business we are unable to offer an exchange service or cover exchange postage costs, however this is something we will be working towards in the future. Please contact us if you have any queries about exchanges.
 

Refunds 
Refunds are processed within 48 hours of receiving the item(s). We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
