Returns Policy

To all our wonderful customers, thank you for shopping with us. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, we will happily issue a store credit within 7 working days of receiving your item(s) in our store. Returned item(s) are to be returned in the exact same condition they were sent in i.e. in a neatly folded, resalable condition with tags and the correct packaging (i.e. shoes must be returned in the shoe box).

**Sale items are NOT eligible for return or refund.

Please note Local Living does not cover return postage costs for returns.

The store credit is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and can be used as payment towards any purchase with Local Living and will be given in the form of a Local Living E-Gift Card. A unique code will be emailed to you – please keep this information in a safe place for your use as we are unable to provide you with a new code.

E-Gift Cards – Store credits are not exchangeable for cash, there is no change given.

Online returns will receive a store credit via email. Please check your Junk/Spam folder.

Please note that if the order was paid via LayBuy or AfterPay your installment payments will remain being paid until the original item has been paid in full.

You can alternatively physically return item(s) to our Retail Stores for a store credit or an exchange. Please bring a copy of your packing slip or Retail Store receipt with your returned item.
