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 within 28 days of purchase*. Please note that all refunds will be made back to the original tender type. For in-store purchases where mixed payment methods have been used, we will need to process the refund in order of Gift Cards, then Credit/Debit Card and cash will be the last amount to be refunded. For your protection, refunds to credit or debit cards will only be processed if the cardholder is present.
