Returning Merchandise

Purchases can be returned if the product is not what is expected at time of receipt, but please note the following conditions:

Returns for any reason other than manufacturing defects MUST be made within 14 days of receipt of merchandise and the product MUST be in it’s original container, unused and in sale-able condition, as well as accompanied by the original receipt.

Later returns may be accepted under certain conditions (please call first), but will incur a 20% restocking fee (unless noted otherwise on individual product).

Shipping charges cannot be refunded.

**Please note: Unjustified charge-backs through your credit card company involve fees paid by us and raise the cost of product for all customers. If the credit card company determines that the charge to your card that you questioned through them was indeed justified you will be charged the fees incurred by this merchant. The minimum fee is $ 15 and increases with each time the original charge and any additional charges for fees are questioned. To avoid these additional fees please contact our customer service department first, either by email to or by telephone at 314-894-2894.
