BOGO 50% DENIM

The BOGO 50% discount code will be automatically applied at checkout to the lesser-priced item. Applicable to the select denim styles that are shown in the Men's BOGO 50% Denim and Women's BOGO 50% Denim collections only.

Total spend on BOGO 50% Denim cannot be counted toward the Free Toque promotion, as two promotions cannot be applied to the same items.

All BOGO 50% denim purchased in-store are final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or store credit.

All BOGO 50% denim purchased online are eligible for Store Credit only (no refunds or exchanges) within 7 days of the initial ship date. If returning through mail, the customer will be responsible for the full return shipping cost which will be deducted from the final store credit amount.

FREE TOQUE PROMOTION

Total spend on BOGO 50% Denim cannot be counted toward the $100 Free Toque promotion, as two promotions cannot be applied to the same items.

Free toques cannot be returned or redeemed for cash or any other value. If an order that qualified for a free toque is returned, the refund or store credit will be issued for the original purchase amount only (less applicable return fees). If the return causes the order amount to be less than $100, the current retail price of the toque will be deducted from the final refund or store credit amount or charged to the customer.

SHIPPING POLICIES

PROCESSING TIMES

We pride ourselves on our efficient order processing and work diligently to get your order to you as soon as possible. Our team packs orders Monday through Friday. The standard processing time is 2-4 business days for all orders. Customers who choose Xpresspost can expect their orders to be processed within 1-2 business days, ensuring even faster delivery times.

Orders placed after 11 am CST from Monday to Friday will begin processing the following business day, irrespective of the shipping method selected. Similarly, orders placed on Saturdays, Sundays, or company observed holidays will not begin processing until the following business day.

All packages are shipped to the address provided by the customer during the checkout process. For timely and accurate delivery, it is important the shipping address is verified before completing the checkout process. Hardpressed is not responsible for misdelivered packages caused by an incorrectly entered address. Once the package has been delivered by the courier, it cannot be retrieved, and Harpressed cannot provide reimbursement unless the items are returned. If changes to the shipping address are needed, please contact us immediately.

IN-STORE PICKUP

Customers have the option of picking up their orders for free from our storefront location at 224 20th Street West in Saskatoon by selecting ‘Pick up’ under 'Delivery method' during the first step of the online checkout process. Before placing the order, customers should ensure that the delivery method selected is 'Pick up in store - 224 20th St. West'.

Please note that the initial confirmation email does not indicate that the order is ready for pick up. A second email will be sent to inform customers once their order has been packed and is available for pick up. Orders are typically fulfilled within 1-3 business days.

We recommend that customers collect their orders within 14 days of receiving a 'Ready for Pick Up' notification to ensure that all return options remain available to them.

SASKATOON LOCAL DELIVERY

Customers residing within Saskatoon city limits can opt for free local delivery by selecting ‘Local delivery’ under ‘Shipping method’ during the second step of the checkout process, subject to some exclusions*. Our team members, rather than Canada Post, will fulfill the local delivery orders. Before placing the order, customers should ensure that the delivery method selected is ‘Local delivery’ and that the correct delivery address has been entered.

Local delivery orders are fulfilled on Thursdays or Fridays, which means that it may take up to 7 business days for the order to be delivered. Hardpressed will send an email confirmation once the order has been delivered. Please note that some delays may occur due to weather or other factors that are beyond our control. If significant delays are expected, the customer will be contacted to discuss alternative shipping or pick up options.

* PO boxes, apartments, condos, business addresses, RR sites, or addresses located in the surrounding areas are not eligible for Saskatoon Local Delivery.

DOMESTIC SHIPPING

Customers have the option to choose between two shipping methods when placing their order. They may choose Standard Shipping for a flat rate of $5.00 (+tax), or opt for the courier calculated rates for Expedited Parcel or Xpresspost through Canada Post. Shipping rates will be visible on the second step of the checkout process.

Orders are usually delivered within 2-10 business days from the date of shipment, depending on the final destination of the package. Customers will receive delivery estimates and relevant tracking information via email once Canada Post has processed the package at their sorting facility. Shipping, handling, and delivery of the package are the sole responsibility of Canada Post.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

We currently provide international shipping to the United States and the United Kingdom only. 

Customers can choose to ship their international orders using courier calculated rates for Tracked Packet International, Expedited Parcel USA, or Xpresspost International through Canada Post. Shipping rates are visible during the second step of the checkout process.

Orders typically take between 14-20 business days to arrive from the date of shipment. Customers will receive delivery estimates and relevant tracking information via email once Canada Post and the courier in the destination country have processed the package at their sorting facility. Shipping, handling, and delivery of the package are the responsibility of Canada Post and the local courier in the destination country.

It is important to note that customs, duties, and charges are not estimated or paid by Hardpressed. Additional fees, in addition to the original postage paid, may be charged upon delivery and are the sole responsibility of the customer.

FULFILLMENT POLICIES

LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS

If items are lost or damaged during shipping with Canada Post, Hardpressed will initiate a claims process with Canada Post. If the claim is approved, Hardpressed will either replace the entire order or provide a full refund.

OUT OF STOCK ITEMS

In the event that an item from an online order is unavailable, the customer will be contacted. Unless an alternative item is requested, Hardpressed will refund the cost of the unavailable item back onto the original payment method within 7 days of contacting the customer.

DEFECTIVE OR WRONG ITEM(S) RECEIVED

If purchased in-store: Hardpressed is happy to reconcile this for you. Please call us at 1 (306) 384-5488, send an email to store@hardpressed.ca, or come back to the store with the defective item and your original purchase receipt and we will be happy to resolve the matter as soon as possible.

If purchased online: To process an exchange for a damaged or incorrect item, please use our Online Return Portal and choose "Item is damaged" or "Received wrong item" as the reason for return. Select the same item and size for exchange and provide any necessary photos when prompted. Upon review and approval, a return label with steps on how to return the item(s) will be emailed to the customer. This may take up to 3 business days. A replacement (stock permitting) will be sent once the defective/wrong item is received back at our facility. Hardpressed will cover all shipping costs.
