Any goods received after 30 days from dispatch will not be eligible for a store credit and will be returned to the customer.
Refunds are not offered for any in-store purchases instead a 60 day store credit will be happily applied to items returned within 30 days of purchase.
Sale items are not able to be returned or refunded.
Original proof of purchase, such as the original SAINTGARDE receipt and/or a bank or credit card statement must be provided;
Items must be returned in original condition, unworn, unused, unaltered, unwashed and with their original labels/tags attached and in their original packaging (any packaging is an inherent part of items purchased and a full refund, credit note or exchange will not be issued if the packaging is not returned);
