Returns and Exchanges
Conditions of Purchase
• A valid proof of purchase is required (bank statement or store receipt) on all return transactions.
• Under the Australian Consumer Law (ACL), consumers have a right to return faulty goods in certain circumstances.
• If the product has a major failure, the consumer has the right to choose between a replacement or refund. If the product has a minor failure, the business can choose to give the consumer a free repair instead of a replacement or refund.
What is a major failure?
A product or good has a major failure when:
• It has a problem that would have stopped someone from buying it if they’d known about it
• It is unsafe
• It is significantly different from any sample or description, or
• It doesn’t do what the business said it would, or what the consumer asked for, and can’t easily be made suitable for such a purpose.
Businesses are NOT required by law to provide refunds to consumers simply because a consumer changed their mind about a purchase when there is no major or minor failure in relation to the good and the good was properly described.
This change of mind policy does not affect your rights under the Australian Consumer Law. If you purchased a product with a major fault, you have the right to ask for your choice of a replacement or refund.
If you purchased a product with a minor fault, we can choose to give you a free repair instead of a replacement or refund.
• Briggins Clothier is happy to offer a store credit for customers who have changed their mind. This is available up to 7 days after the purchases and the goods must be in original unworn/unaltered condition.
• In store and online prices may vary depending upon the level of services provided.
• Gift cards can be redeemed for merchandise only at BRIGGINS stores. Gift cards cannot be redeemed for cash.
• Gift cards are valid for 12 months from the purchase date.
When can a consumer return faulty goods?
Under the ACL, consumers can return faulty goods within a reasonable time.
The term “reasonable time” is not defined by the ACL.
Considering the nature of our goods, a reasonable amount of time is 6 months for any assessment.
Goods returned outside this duration cannot be accessed purely based on the time passed.
