Any time or date stated for delivery is an estimate only.

If you require an item urgently for a special date or event please contact Heavy Gretel and we will try our best to accommodate your requirements.

An additional Click & Collect service is available for no charge, please read below.

Click & Collect

If you would prefer to collect your order from our store, please make an order as usual via the website.

At the checkout page you will be provided with an opportunity to select the "Collect in store" delivery option.

Shortly after you place your order using the Click & Collect service, you will be contacted by Heavy Gretel via email to arrange a suitable collection time and day. Once the collection date has been confirmed, please bring your order confirmation email to the shop as proof of purchase and your order will be released.


Orders for stock items can be cancelled any time before dispatch but you must inform Heavy Gretel in writing by email.

Please note that orders for goods which have been specially commissioned, customised or personalised to order cannot be cancelled.


If for some reason you would like to return your purchase, please return it unworn and in the original packaging within 30 days - please get in touch before doing so to see if we can help in any way and so we know to expect it.

Refunds will be made using the same method as the original payment within 30 days.

Faulty or incorrect goods

If your goods arrive faulty, damaged or are not what you ordered you must inform Heavy Gretel within 7 days of delivery and we will help you to resolve any issues as quickly as possible. Wilful, malicious damage or negligence will void any rights you have to take advantage of the refund or exchange policies.

Goods which are thought to be faulty after this time will be treated case by case. Please contact Heavy Gretel to discuss the problem.

All orders are subject to acceptance and availability of goods ordered. Heavy Gretel reserves the right to refuse any order.
