Return Policy

Our policy lasts 30 days.
If 30 days have gone by since your purchase was delivered, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused/unopened and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging. 

Non-returnable items:
Gift cards

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase.

Record Store Day Products

Sadly, due to the limited availability of these products we can not issue refunds and/or exchanges for these items. As most of items released for RSD will never be repressed in the same capacity.

International Returns (if applicable)
Items that are shipped outside of Canada or the United States of America via DHL if rejected/not picked up by the customer, the customer will not be eligible for a refund.

DHL will only return items which are addressed incorrectly or damaged. If the item is rejected by the customer because of duties or taxes the item will be treated as abandoned.  Abandoned items are not eligible for a refund.

Duties and taxes are not included in the price of shipping internationally using Canada Post or DHL.

If an International Refund is possible, that refund can only be processed once the items are returned to our warehouse and processed by our returns team.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.
