Returns & Exchanges
Final Sale & No Return Items
All parts, consumable products (such as coffee, tea, or anything else that ends up your belly) are final sale. For everything else we won’t say "no questions asked", as we find that quite often a customer may be missing a step in using the item. If you have an issue with your machine or appliance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us toll free at 1-800-263-3890. We can help troubleshoot your machine, and provide you with help using your new machine. In the case that the machine has a warranty concern, we can help you start a new warranty claim with the manufacturer.
Any items marked in the product description as “Final Sale” cannot be returned. Open Box items are marked as final sale and cannot be returned.
- If you are not completely satisfied with most of our items, they can be returned, unused and in new condition, up to 30 days after you receive it with proof of purchase. If you have used a machine or equipment, we will still accept your return, but will apply a restocking fee depending on the condition of the item. Please note that all parts, consumable products (such as coffee, tea, or anything else that ends up your belly) are final sale. For everything else we won’t say "no questions asked", as we find that quite often a customer may be missing a step in using the item. Sometimes by providing a bit of extra knowledge we end up addressing any concerns you may have.
- If you purchased in store you can return to one of our stores. If you purchased online, or for curbside pickup, you can return to one of our stores in Ancaster or Burlington. Note that orders purchased online and returned in-store will be refunded within three business days and not immediately. For any returns being shipped back, please contact us first at email@example.com or call 1-800-263-3890 prior to shipping anything back to us.
- All items must be returned in the original packaging and be complete with all parts. We ask that you package your return items well so that they are not damaged during the journey. We cannot refund items which were not packaged well enough to survive the trip. We also reserve the right to assess and charge a restocking fee of 15-30% if the product is used, dirty, wet or missing any parts or accessories. Once we receive your returned item, we will inspect it to verify any damage and will refund the amount via your original method of payment.
- Please note that return shipping costs are the responsibility of the customer.
All of our products are covered under individual manufacturer warranties. If a product you’ve purchased from us stops working due to a manufacturer defect, please let us know as soon as possible by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will work with you to determine your warranty coverage. Note we are authorized warranty centres for some brands, but you may have to contact the brand in advance to authorize our service work.
Warranties do not apply to any glass or ceramic items or parts, or defect arising from a buyer or user’s misuse of the product, negligence, lack of descaling, or failure to follow product instructions.

If you change your mind or realize that you've ordered the wrong product after it's shipped, we'll happily accept a return as outlined in section 1 above. From this point, you're free to place a new order for the desired product either immediately, or once you receive your refund - it's up to you!
We have a multi-step process to ensure accuracy of all orders that ship from our warehouse. Each item is scanned twice through our system so it is unlikely you will receive the wrong item. We also track serial numbers of items (where applicable) we ship and keep a record of the weight of each shipment. This additional step enables us to duplicate each shipment, repack and confirm all items were shipped by weight. If you are unfortunate enough to discover a mistake or a damaged item in your order, please inform us right away by sending an email to email@example.com or call 1-800-263-3890 so we can rectify this for you asap.
Damaged items must be reported within 2 business days of receiving your order. We recommend that you take pictures of the damages prior to opening any packages.
Please follow the process below to notify us of your damaged items.

Curbside Pickup Returns & Exchanges
Due to the challenges we face because of COVID-19, we will have to process curbside pickup returns and exchanges a bit differently this year. We will be arranging returns and exchanges by appointment.
To arrange your return, please fill out the form below. Provide your name, phone number, email, order # (or receipt #), original method of payment (Debit, Credit Card, cash etc), the purchase date, reason for return and location you would like to return the product to.
After you fill out the form, hit send. After we receive your form, we will reach back out by email or phone to arrange a date for you to bring your package to our store. We will also provide you with an RMA number for your return.
On your scheduled return date, please bring your RMA number, as well as your item(s) in original packaging, with all parts included to our location. Once you arrive, please call the location and let our associates know the RMA number of the return. Bring the item to the table at the front of the location. We will provide you with a confirmation of acceptance, or will bring the debit terminal out to process your return, depending on the original method of payment.
Please note that due to COVID, we are not able to do straight exchanges by curbside pickup.
- If you wish to exchange at curbside, please place a second order online in advance for the item you want.
- Once purchased, arrange to do a curbside RETURN as per our curbside return policy and notify us that you will also be picking up your new unit.
- We will bring your new order out to you at the time you bring back the item you are returning. We will refund you for the original order once we test and ensure the correct item is returned and in resealable condition.
Please note: We have to inspect equipment & machines to ensure all parts are included with the return. Inspections may need to be done by our technician prior to issuing the return. In this case, please allow 48 hours for us to process your return.
If you purchased in cash: We are not able to refund your purchase in cash at this time. If your original payment was cash, we can arrange for your payment to go back on to a credit or debit card. Otherwise, we can provide your return on a gift card.
For Machine & Equipment Returns: If the item has been damaged, not in the original packaging, or parts / manuals missing, a restocking fee will apply. Restocking fee varies depending on damage or pieces missing. Please ensure your return includes everything the machine came with to avoid this.
