Talbots Stores

As a company known for its quality, they want you to be completely satisfied. If for any reason you are not happy with your purchase, Talbots will accept returns and exchanges of unworn, unwashed merchandise and unopened fragrance with a valid receipt within 90 days of purchase, unless defective.

If you do not have a receipt, but the merchandise is still ticketed and returned within 90 days of purchase, a merchandise credit will be issued for the current selling price, including all applicable discounts and promotions. Merchandise marked as Final Sale cannot be returned or exchanged.
