How to Return a LOFT Item
You may return LOFT items through mail or in-person at a LOFT location. It is important to note that items purchased at LOFT stores must be returned to LOFT stores. Items purchased at LOFT outlet stores must be returned to LOFT outlet stores. Online items must be returned at a LOFT store, not a LOFT outlet store.
For items that are returned by mail, you have 2 options. You may use the prepaid shipping label for your LOFT items, or you may mail it on your own. Mailing your item or items with the prepaid label are only to be shipped using the USPS – United States Postal Service. Items for exchange may not be mailed.
Follow the instructions specified below for each option accordingly.
Mailing with Prepaid Shipping Label
In order to obtain your prepaid label, go to the LOFT website and search for the Customer Service page. There will be a section on the LOFT return policy. There will also be a link to start your return process. Click on the link.
After you have clicked on the link it will take you to a page where you must enter some information. Enter the order number for the purchase and the email associated with the purchase.
Once you have input your information you will need to print your return label and make sure that you have printed out your invoice return.
Next, pack your items and include the printed return invoice. You must ensure that the items are in original condition. They must not have any marks that would indicate wear or tear.
Following the packing of the item or items to be returned, close the package that you are mailing the item or items with. Secure the prepaid shipping label to the outside of the package. Make sure no other shipping labels are visible on the package. This will avoid confusion and confirm a smooth return process.
Finally, drop the package at your most convenient USPS location. If you are using this method, $7.95 will be deducted from your return credit amount.
Mailing Without Prepaid Label
First you will want to go to the Customer Service page of the LOFT website to print your return invoice. This will be found after you have submitted your order number and associated email address.
Next, pack your items in their original condition. They should not have any wear or tear marks on them. Close your package and ensure that none of the items will fall out.
After the item or items have been packaged properly, choose your carrier. Some examples of good carriers to choose are UPS and FedEx. You may still use the USPS even without the prepaid label, you are just not required to in this case.
Mail to the following address:
LOFT Online Store
1901 East State Road 240
Greencastle, IN 46135
Please note that this method may delay the return process by up to 3 weeks.
