Christmas Deliveries

We know how stressful it can be in the run up to Christmas, but when it comes to buying from Readmans it needn't be.

Last order dates are:

Standard UK Delivery - Due to current delivery performace of Royal Mail 2nd class & Hermes we do not recommend nor can we guarantee delivery before Christmas by using this service.  Orders using Standard UK Delivery must by placed by Friday 16th December.

Faster Standard UK delivery – Monday 21st Dec

Next Working Day UK delivery - Tuesday 22nd Dec 

You are still in time for last minute Christmas Shopping.  You can choose from the following UK delivery options at checkout.  We do not recommend Standard Delivery due to high levels of demand through Royal Mail and Hermes.  

Please Note that Next Working Day and Saturday delivery will require a signature upon delivery.

The table indicates the total timescale for delivery from the date you place the order, providing you do so by 3pm on a working day.

Our returns policy

In addition to the Distance Selling Regulations, you can return any item within 28 days of receipt for a refund of that item or to exchange it for a different size or colour. 

Please note that in the interests of hygiene, items marked with a '+' next to the product name cannot be returned, unless they have remained in their original wrapping or are faulty. 

In all cases, the items returned must be in their original condition, which includes any packaging. For example, shoes are to be returned along with the original shoe box. All goods will be inspected on return. The goods are your responsibility until they reach us. 

Please ensure you package your return to prevent any damage to the items or boxes. We are not responsible for any items that are returned to us in error.

 We recommend you use a postal service that insures you for the value of the goods you are returning.

 For details of how to make a return please see below How To Return An Item. 

We also accept cancelled orders under the Distance Selling Regulations – Please click here for more information

Christmas Returns

At Christmas, we know items are bought in advance and given as gifts at Christmas time. So if you're ordering items now for Christmas presents, you may return them up to 10th January, as long as they have not been worn or used, and have the original labels attached.

The returns policy for Christmas decorations is 14 days from the date of in-store purchase, or if we deliver the product to you, then within 14 days from the date you received it. The product must be unused and within the original packaging. This 14 day policy does not apply for faulty items and does not affect your consumer rights

 

How To Return An Item

Our aim is to provide a hassle free service. You have 28 days to decide if you want to return any item within your order. All you have to do is simply use our Returns System.

You can access our Returns System by logging into your account by clicking ‘My Account’ and then go to ‘Completed Orders’. Once we have received your Returns Request we will provide you with a Returns Number and further details. It can take up to 7 days for us to receive your return, depending on which postal service you use.

However once we receive them, we will inspect and process the goods within 48 hours to ensure you receive what you want as quickly as possible. So you are kept informed, we will send you an email confirming the action we have taken, as soon as we are confident the goods are in their original condition and the return has been allocated to your account.

Any refund will automatically be issued to the card used to make the original purchase and in the event, we are unable to provide a suitable replacement we will automatically refund you and let you know via email. In all cases, the items returned must be in their original condition. All goods will be inspected on return and any item in unsuitable condition will be sent back to you. 

Please send your returned items to:
Readmans
Whitehall Road East
Birkenshaw, Bradford
BD11 2EQ 

It is important that you clearly mark your package with the Returns Number
