When it comes to return policies, there are some stores that have it better than others! We compiled a list of retailers with the best and worst return policies. The retailers that topped the list have exceptional customer service, give at least 30 or unlimited days for a full refund and some even allow you to return used merchandise! One of the top retailers has not even opened all of their Canadian locations yet, but we couldn’t resist adding them to our list – their return policy was just too good! The retailers that made the worst list have super confusing return policies with different time limits for different merchandise, don’t allow full refunds or give shoppers a very limited time restriction on returns and exchanges. Check out our list below!
