Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is our last Christmas shipping date?
A: The last shipping date using standard shipping is 19th December.  However we can still ship goods using courier services.  These cost more - typically £7.50 - £12 for most packets, but more for larger cartons - but do offer a 24 hour shipping service.  This means that last shipping day, using this service, is 22nd Dec.  BUT PLEASE don't leave your order that late!!  Mistakes can happen and we would not like you to be disappointed.

Q: What are your Christmas opening hours?
A: We are closed from 1pm 24th Dec 2013 through to 2nd Jan 2014, when we will re-open at 10am in the morning.  All orders received in that period will be shipped out on the 2nd Jan or the latest 3rd Jan, presuming stock is available at the warehouse.

Q: Returns
We will take back genuine faulty returns and will in some cases collect the faulty item from you, depending on the time frame of the notification of the faulty item and in accordance with Amazon's policies.  You do NOT always need to send it back yourself.  Please call us on 01252 758550 to make arrangements for returns or email us for instructions where a faulty item qualifies.

We will take back non faulty returns within a reasonable time frame, as defined in the distance trading laws, normally 7-14 days.  In these cases you should make your own arrangements to send the item to back to us after completing our returns form here:-

    The Friendly Lifestyle Store Dispatch Policies

    We try to maintain the highest shipping quality that we can and are always reviewing our shipping partners so that we can give our customers the best service.  Normally, for our standard shipping, we use Royal Mail or and for expedited shipping we use ParcelForce on an overnight service.

    Certain parts of the UK do take longer to ship to, like the islands and the highlands of Scotland, Isle of Man, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands.  We can also ship to Europe but please bear in mind that this takes longer too, up to 8-20 days in some countries.

    If you have any query about our shipping methods or services please do not hesitate to contact us.
