  Returns and Exchanges Policy

We will gladly accept returns and/or exchanges within 30 calendar days of the original purchase provided that the merchandise is still in new condition with all original tags and packaging and proof of purchase (receipt).  Items purchased online or over the phone may be returned via mail as directed on your invoice or to any Chivilla Bay Retail Store.

For return items we will refund your purchase price of that item (excluding shipping and handling).  You are responsible for shipping the merchandise back to us at your own expense.

We will gladly exchange merchandise within the first 30 calendar days of original purchase.  It is the buyers responsibility to ship the original merchandise back to our warehouse but we will pay the return shipping provided it is equal or lesser value than the orginal shipping cost.

Gift items that are returned to our Chivilla Bay retail store will be given the opportunity to exchange the item or to be issued store credit or a Chivilla Bay Gift Certificate.  Gift items cannot be exchanged for cash.

When you do not have your receipt for purchases made in online or in one of our retail stores, we will attempt to assist you using our Receipt Look-up system. Purchases that cannot be verified may not be refunded.

If you do not have a receipt for an online purchase, you can simply reprint the receipt through the Order History link online.

If you receive the wrong item when ordering online, please return it for a replacement. If the wrong item was received due to a Chivilla Bay error, the cost of returning the incorrect item will be credited through the original payment method and shipping of the replacement item will be free of charge.

Undeliverable Packages

Occasionally packages are returned to us as undeliverable. When the carrier returns an undeliverable package to us, Chivilla Bay online customer service will call you to notify you of the returned package and ask for a new shipping address. You will not be charged for the second shipping fee. If you cannot be reached within 7 days, we will process a return for the order.

If you suspect your order was deemed undeliverable, you should call our store at: 1-605-274-0550 within 10 days of the estimated delivery date.

Why Was My Package Undeliverable?

Our carriers may deem a package undeliverable for any of the following reasons:

  • Incorrect or Out-of-date Address
  • P.O. Box Format: When entering a post office box as a shipping address, please be sure to enter it as “PO BOX” followed by the number.
  • Other Address Problems: Some organizations have strict delivery restrictions for their residents. These rules are determined independently and may vary.
  • Illegible Label: In rare cases, it is also possible that the address became illegible during the shipping and handling process.
  • Failed Delivery Attempts: Most of our carriers make one to three attempts to deliver a package. Some packages may require a signature. After the attempts at delivery, either a note will be left on your door or the package will be returned to us. If a package is returned to us, you will be called by our online customer service to notify you of the returned package and ask for a new shipping address.
  • Refused by Recipient: If a gift recipient is not expecting a gift, they may refuse the package if they believe it was sent to them in error. If you still want to send these items, you may want to re-order and let the recipient know that a surprise is on the way.

Shipping FAQ:

If I return an item, will Chivilla Bay reimburse my shipping and handling costs?

Unfortunately, we are not able to reimburse you for any shipping costs you incur purchasing an item at Chivilla or returning the merchandise via mail. To avoid return shipping and handling costs, simply bring your merchandise and receipt to the Chivilla Bay nearest you.  If the return is a result of our error, follow the return instructions on your packing slip to return the item to Chivilla for a complete refund.

Which mail carriers partner with Chivilla Bay?

We currently use two carriers depending on your package. These carriers are UPS and the USPS (United States Postal Service).

UPS  is used for packages over 70 lbs and for most packages sent to Alaska and Hawaii.
