Product availability is updated daily. When you select your required size the availability will appear below either;
- Order within.....for delivery on....
- Pre-Order now for dispatch on...
If there is an availability problem with an item that appears as ‘Item in stock’ usually where the number of orders exceeds the current stock levels we will contact you by phone or email to inform you and advise on further availability and how you wish to proceed with your order.
When you pre-order an item the ‘Pre-order now for dispatch on’ message will appear. This is the anticipated dispatch date from our offices based on the delivery schedule from the manufacturer which can be liable to change. If this date does change we will aim to notify you at the earliest opportunity by email of the new expected delivery date. If you have selected to personalise your pre-order please allow an extra 2-3 days for your order to be dispatched.
If an item is listed as ‘On Sale’ it is highly unlikely that the item will come back into stock. These items are usually the last of a current range / style / colour / size or indeed discontinued by the manufacturer. Only the sizes that are listed online will be available. For example if only size ‘Medium’ is listed as an option we will not have a ‘Small’ or ‘Large’ or any other sizes in stock of that particular item.
Usually once an item is on sale it will remain on sale until all the remaining stock has been sold. Promotions or offers may last for a limited time only however the price advertised will be honoured at the time of the order being placed.
Due to obvious personal security reasons we are unable to take orders by email. However if you are having problems ordering online please do call us on 0141 221 3322, choose the relevant department and a member of staff will take your order by phone. Your order will then be sent out to you by one of our selected couriers, either Royal Mail or Parcelforce (depending on the size/weight/dimensions of your order). When ordering by phone you will receive your package by courier and your receipts / invoice for the transaction by second class post.
Size guides are available on the product page to view or download in PDF format. Due to us stocking a large number of brands we do aim to use the size guide specific to that brand. For example Adidas sizing might differ from Under Armour sizing.
If you wish to check sizes with the relevant department before ordering please call us on 0141 221 3322 and choose the relevant department.
Yes. If you receive your order confirmation and realise you have ordered an incorrect size please call us at the earliest opportunity to amend your order. Provided the size you meant to order is in stock we are happy to amend your order for you. Once your order has been dispatched we are unfortunately unable to amend it. We do recommend calling us to change a size rather than emailing.
Please note however that in some cases there may be a price difference to move up a size. For example a 15-16 year old football jersey will retail at £50.00. The next size up (Adults size Small) retails at £60.00. In this instance we would contact you to arrange payment for £10.00.
In some cases it may be the opposite & you wish to go down a size. In this instance the refund would be issued to you via the same method of payment you originally used to purchase the goods.
Yes. As long as you bring your invoice / proof of purchase back to our Gordon Street store you are able to exchange a size. If the size you desired was unavailable due to stock levels you would be offered a refund, credit note or indeed the flexibility to select another item to the same value as your original purchase. Please note if you wished to choose an alternative item which was more expensive you would be able to pay the difference with cash or a credit / debit card.

If an item develops a fault we would advise firstly contacting our internet department either by phone/ email to seek advice. From there we will either ask you to send pictures to us of the fault or to send the item back. In most cases we would need to receive the item/s back to have them inspected. From there we will be able to either refund your purchase or replace the item where possible.
All unsuitable or faulty items should be sent to:
23 Gordon Street
If you feel you have been refunded the incorrect amount please contact our customer service department as soon as possible. We aim to always be accurate but do apologise if an error does occur. The following may affect the amount you have been refunded:
- We do not refund return delivery charges unless the item has been deemed faulty or otherwise approved by the management.
- Any discounts which applied at the time of the sale which may no longer be applicable
- Human error
If you have refused delivery of your parcel or not contacted / collected your item from your local delivery office, you are liable for any charges that occur for the item to be sent back to us. If we are unable to contact you upon the parcel’s return after a considerable period we will refund your purchase excluding delivery charges.
If you returned an item for an exchange but were refunded instead this is probably due to us being unable to exchange the item due to stock availability. In all cases where an exchange is requested but we are unable to process this we will contact you by phone and / or email to inform you and see how you wish to proceed, i.e. opt for a refund or choose a different item. If we are unable to reach you after a considerable period we will automatically refund you for the item and therefore the funds will be in your account to make an alternative purchase.
Yes. If you wish to cancel an order before we have processed it for dispatch we would advise calling our internet department as soon as possible. In this case, you would be refunded in full for your purchase, including delivery as we have not dispatched your order.
If we have already dispatched your order and you contact us to cancel it then unfortunately you would have to return the items to us when you receive them. Unfortunately your order would then fall under our Returns Policy terms & conditions and would have to be returned to us by post at your own cost.
