FAQs

I have shopped on your online store in the past, but I am unable to log into your new website, what should I do?

We launched a new website in April 2018 and were unable to transfer customer details from our existing site due to privacy restrictions. But don’t worry, we still have your purchase history and loyalty points on file. All you need to do is create an account on our new website using the same information you used on the previous site.  Please contact us at [email protected] or call (03) 99122713 if you have any questions.

Will my purchase history and loyalty points be lost if I create a new account?

No. We still have our customer’s loyalty points and purchase history on file as this information has been kept separate from customer online accounts.

What are loyalty points and how do I use them online?

Loyalty points are accrued on your customer account when you purchase any full priced item. For every dollar you spend, you will receive 1 loyalty point. For every 500 loyalty points you gain, a $25 voucher will be issued on your account to be used towards your next purchase. Loyalty point notifications are sent via email four times a year. You will be sent a code to use during the checkout process and this amount will be automatically deducted from your shopping total.

Do you offer layby?
 

Unfortunately we do not offer layby online, however we do offer Afterpay. Afterpay is a third-party company that allows you to purchase your item today and make fortnightly payments towards your order. We offer traditional layby in our retail boutiques. Please click here to find your closest boutique.

What is Afterpay and how do I use it?

Afterpay is a third-party company that allows you to receive your order instantly, but pay over four equal fort-nightly instalments. You must be over 18, live in Australia and have an active Afterpay account in order to use this service.  For more information or to apply for an Afterpay account, please click here.
