Delivery and Returns

General Delivery Information


We aim to send your parcels out same day. So if you order before 12:00pm Mon-Fri (excluding saturday, sunday and bank holidays) we will try to dispatch same day. Any orders placed after 12:00pm will be sent out next day. We do not do same day delivery or 1st class sevices.

When your item is dispatched, we will send you a confirmation email to the email address you have provided when placing your order.

If your order was shipped with Evri, your dispatch email shows the tracking number, so you can keep an eye on the progress of your order after it has left us.

If your order was dispatched with Royal Mail, you will receive a tracking number in your dispatch email. However, the Royal Mail tracking will not activate until they have attempted delivery. In this case you will need to contcat your local sorting depot to either collect it or have it re delivered on the day of your choice.

If you require delivery to more than one address, you will need to prepare a separate order for each address and each order will incur a delivery charge if applicable.

Store collection

If you would like to collect your order from one of our Shaws stores, you can select the store of your choice during checkout.

You will receive a dispatch confirmation email when we have processed the order at our warehouse. This does not indicate that your order is ready for collection.

Please allow 3-7 days for the order to reach the store. This very much depends on when the relevant store will be receiving deliveries. You will receive a phone call from the store when your order is ready for collection. Please do not journey to the store to collect your order before this.


We want you to be completely satisfied every time you shop with ShawsDirect. We therefore give you 30 days from delivery to return your order to us for any reason for a refund or exchange. We will refund the original payment method on receipt of your returned goods. If you wish to return an order, please follow the instructions below. Goods must be returned in a resalable condition with all tags and packaging intact.

By post: send your goods at your own expense to Shaws (Cardiff) Ltd Returns, Fountain Lane, Off Cypress Drive, St Mellons, Cardiff, CF3 0FB. We recommend proof of postage or recorded delivery, as we cannot credit any items that we do not receive or which are damaged in the post.

In person: return to one of our stores. You will need your order confirmation or delivery note, and we will refund the original payment card used.

Unfortunately we are unable to accept returns of the following products: CD/DVD's or software that have been opened; food products that will be within 3 months of the sell-by date on their return; and products that can't be returned for hygiene reasons once the original packaging has been opened such as undergarments, pillows and mattress protectors. Products that have been customised to a customer's personal specification are also excluded from returns, except in cases of defect.

If you wish to return an order, all goods should be returned in the original product packaging in which they were sent to you, and they should be suitably packaged to avoid damage when in transit.  A full refund will be provided upon return (excluding any return postage costs, if applicable). Goods must be returned in a resalable condition with all tags and packaging intact. We reserve the right to make a deduction from the refundable amount if goods are not returned in a saleable condition or are damaged.

My product has arrived faulty or damaged.

We try our best to ensure items arrive in a good condition. In the rare event of a problem with your delivery, please either do not accept delivery or sign for the item as "damaged", or "unchecked" if you do not have the opportunity to inspect on delivery. You must inform us by email at or call 02920 837613 about any such problems within 7 working days. If you are able to, sending images of any fault or damage is helpful at this point. We can then agree the best course of action for you and the particular item. Please note that proof of purchase is required with all claims. Should the item have been altered/amended/'fixed' by yourself, we will not able to accept this as a return.
If you return something due to it being faulty or damaged, we will refund the full amount of the order including any return postage costs (upon proof of purchase of the postage) up to a maximum of £10 within 30 days. Please contact us if your return postage cost exceeds this amount.

Effects of Cancellation

We will make the reimbursement using the same means of payment as you used for the initial transaction, unless you have expressly agreed otherwise; in any event, you will not incur any fees as a result of the reimbursement.
