Due to COVID-19, the remaining store locations not mentioned as re-opened above have temporarily closed to protect our customers and store associates. In light of this decision, in-store returns and our ship-to-store service will be unavailable until further notice.

If you do not absolutely love your new purchase, you can easily return the item(s) for a full refund of the purchased price. To make things easier for you, we’ve updated our return policy to offer you free returns by mail for all online orders.

For a limited time, Garage is offering FREE RETURNS BY MAIL on all online orders. Please note that you will have 30 days from the day your order has shipped to return your items. This offer does not apply to orders being shipped to Nunavut, Yukon or the Northwest Territories. This offer may be combined with other offers and brand promotions. No coupon code necessary.
