CHECK STOCK IN STORE
Our ‘Check Stock In Store’ service shows you product availability in your local Whistles store. Please note, this is only a guide to stock levels so, the best thing to do is call ahead before visiting the branch to make sure that the item is still available.
This service displays stock that is available in Whistles standalone stores only and does not apply to concessions or wholesale.
If you wish to reserve an item, our teams would be more than happy to hold garments for up to 48 hours.
If you wish to purchase the item over the phone we will deliver it to an address of your choosing. Please be aware that a postage cost will be applied to your order.
If you have purchased the item over the phone and you wish to return to a Whistles store, please ensure your goods are returned within 28 days from the date of receipt with the dispatch note as your receipt.
If you have purchased the item over the phone and you wish to return by post, simply complete the enclosed returns form including your name, Tran(saction) ID and Till ID. Ensure your goods are securely wrapped and the completed returns form is enclosed along with a copy of your till receipt. Please note that we will not be able to process your return without this paper work. All you’ll need to do is attach the Freepost Returns Label to the parcel and take this to your local Post Office. Make sure you obtain a ‘proof of postage’ receipt which you should retain until you’ve received your refund. Once we have received the items, a member of our Customer Service team will call you during the working week between 9 am – 5 pm, to process the refund over the phone. It usually takes between 5-10 working days from the date of postage to receive and process refunds.
We are unable to process exchanges for items returned via post however you can visit your local standalone store for this service.
RETURNING GOODS TO STORE
Please ensure your goods are returned to store within 28 days from the date of receipt, with a dispatch note as your receipt.
We offer this facility at any Whistles UK and international standalone stores. Unfortunately, this returns service is not available at Whistles concessions or factory outlets. When presenting your dispatch note you will be asked the reason for the return, and whether you wish to exchange the item or obtain a refund.
RETURNING GOODS BY POST
It’s easy to return your item(s) by post. Simply complete the enclosed returns form with your name, address, and order number. Ensure your goods are securely wrapped and the completed returns form is enclosed, then attach the freepost returns label to the parcel.
Take the goods, along with the dispatch note, to the Post Office. Make sure you obtain a proof of postage certificate which you will need to retain until you have received your refund. With social distancing measures within our distribution centre and Royal Mail, this may take a little longer than usual. We aim to process and refund online orders within 14 days of you returning the items. You will receive an email to confirm your refund. Please note it may take 3-5 days for the refund to appear in your account.
