Click and Collect FAQs
What is Click & Collect?
Click & Collect is a service that allows you to buy on-line and collect purchases for FREE in selected Ann’s Cottage Stores. We are always seeking to expand our services to customers to enable us to offer bigger ranges coupled with the most convenient supply option for our customers.
Items ordered on this service will take 2-3 days from point of purchase to be available for collection in your selected store.
For security reasons, you will need to bring a form of ID and your order confirmation Email (either on paper or on your phone/mobile device). All collections will also need to be signed for.

Can I try my items on when I collect them in store?
Yes. Please ensure that you speak to a staff member in store so they are aware that you are trying items on which have already been purchased.
Can I return an item immediately if I have looked at it/tried it on and I no longer require it?
Yes. The item will need to be returned to the Website Customer Service Team who will handle any refund so please ensure that you enclose details with the returned item so our staff can identify the order which the return relates to and can then process your refund correctly. All refunds are carried out within 24 hours of receipt by our Website Team.
If I leave a return in store for delivery back to the Website Customer Service Team, how long will it be before if receive confirmation of my refund?
For most stores there is transport between the store and the Website on a daily basis so it should be a maximum of 48 hours before you receive your confirmation of refund. The exceptions to this are our stores in Falmouth and Bude as we only have transport three days per week so there may be a slight delay if the return is coming through either of those stores.
How and when is my refund processed?
You have 28 days from collection date to return the item in store or to our return address for a refund or exchange (exchanges are dealt with by our Website Customer Services Team and cannot be dealt with in store for annscottage.com orders). Each order comes with a Return Form which should be completed in respect of all items being sent back to us for refund or exchange.
As soon as any refunds or exchanges have been completed, a confirmation is issued by the Website Customer Service Team.
