We hope you’ll be very happy with your For the Love of the North purchase, but if you do wish to return your item/s, you can do so within 14 days of purchase, so long as it is unused, and in its original packaging.

We are not able to refund any postage charges, but we will send any exchange items free of postage charges.
RETURNS BY POST
Please return your item/s in their original packaging. Be sure to include your name, order number and contact details.
Our return address is:
For the Love of the North,Unit 2 Spanish City, Whitley Bay NE26 1BG.
We are happy to exchange or return via the original payment method.
If the purchase was over £70 we advise you to return via a “signed for” service and keep the proof of purchase as we are unable to be responsible for any postal losses.
CONDITIONS OF RETURN
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. We cannot refund the item(s) if any third-party repairs, incorrect use or careless handling have occurred.
HOW WE WILL RESPOND
Once we received your return, providing it meets the returns conditions above, we will notify you of your refund within a reasonable period. Most returns will be processed within 14 days, although, on occasion, some returns may take up to 28 days. Your refund will be credited back to your original method of payment within approximately two days of being processed. Our delivery charges are non-refundable, and For the Love of the North is not responsible for delivery fees or lost returns.
If the item was marked as a gift when purchased and shipped directly to you, we understand that you may prefer not to ask the purchaser for the receipt. We would therefore be able to offer you a gift credit for the value of your return, subject to the same return conditions as above.
We’re always really disappointed on the rare occasions that customers receive an item that isn’t to our high standards. Faulty items will be refunded in full, including delivery charges for sending them to you and the cost incurred by you in returning them to us. Please email us at email@example.com and include your order number and the nature of the fault.
