Returns and Refunds
We hope you’re happy with your Dunelm purchase, if you decide it isn’t right for you, you can return or exchange unwanted items up to 28 days after purchase. Items must:
- Be unused and in their original condition (including all packaging and tags intact)
- Have proof of purchase such as receipt or order confirmation
- There are some items that we can't return or exchange unless faulty. Read our returns policy to find out more.
Store returns are currently available in all of our stores in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland and you have 28 days from the date of purchase to return or exchange unwanted items.
Unfortunately, returns cannot be made in-store in Wales due to temporary store closures as part of local restrictions. Don't worry though, you will have until 31st January 2021 to return items to stores in Wales from the point they reopen.
Please note we have paused home collections in areas under Tier 2 and Tier 3 restrictions until Government guidelines say it is safe to resume. We ask that you call us to arrange a collection only once your address is categorised as being in Tier 1 in accordance with Government guidelines. We apologise for any inconvenience.
You can return items bought online or in-store at any of our branches nationwide, which is the fastest way to receive a refund.
Please bring your receipt or order confirmation, as well as your original payment method for us to process your refund or exchange. We ask that you read our returns policy to make sure that your item is returnable.
To use the Hermes drop-off or collection service you will require a printer.
Please note, furniture and large items are not eligible for store return.
Returns are currently unavailable at stores in Wales as our shops are closed as part of local restrictions. Don't worry, you will have from store reopening until 31st January 2021 to return an item to our stores in Wales. Find more information on returns here.
Items should be returned in original packaging for home collections.
To arrange a collection, please contact us via our customer service team. You can fill out our online form or call our team on 0345 165 6565, please note due to a high volume of calls it may take us a little longer to respond.
If it’s safe to do so and you are comfortable with it, our team will collect the item from your room of choice. If you are isolating or don’t feel comfortable with an in-home collection, we ask that you place the item on your doorstep for a contact-free collection.
Please note - We are still following the latest Government guidelines, so the availability of this service may vary due to local restrictions.
The time to receive a refund depends on when and how an item was returned. If you return via:
Instore - Please allow up to 7 days, we’ll email you once your refund has been processed.
MyHermes drop offs and collections - Once we have received the item(s) your refund will be processed, please allow up to 21 days for the funds to appear in your bank. You will receive an email once it's processed.
