BEST: Nordstrom Canada

Everyone is already aware of Nordstrom’s unheard of return policy. It doesn’t change for the holidays, so if you’re looking to return or exchange a gift, you’ll have no issues. No receipt? No problem. Nordstrom has a unique barcode on their tags so they know the item is from their store when scanned. There’s also no time limit, which is quite unique when it comes to retail return policies.

Best and worst holiday retail return policies in Canada

Last year, CBC reported that $46 billion dollars worth of goods are returned to retailers every year — and much of that is done during the holiday season.

Some retailers have excellent year-round return policies so they don’t need to make special concessions during the holidays. Others try to step up their return game for a short period of time to accommodate gift returns/exchanges or just consumers with buyer’s remorse. It’s a lot of information to sift through, especially if you don’t have time to read the fine print but we’ve done some of the legwork for you.

If you know you have a lot of picky people on your list, make note of these retailers with the best and worst holiday (and regular) return policies.
