Questions of cash: Securing a £100 refund on a replacement handbag was like going round and round the Mulberry bush
Saturday 24 November 2012
Q. My husband bought a bag for me on 5 January for my birthday from the Mulberry store in St Christopher's Place, London. It was not a sale item. At my request, he exchanged it on 20 January for a different colour. The replacement bag was £100 cheaper. The store told him he could not have a refund and instead issued a credit note. However, the store's website shows that its policy is that items returned in perfect condition within 28 days with proof of purchase will be refunded. I have tried repeatedly but unsuccessfully to contact Mulberry to resolve this. The transaction was some time ago but I only recently found out that the store did not provide a refund. FW, by email.
