Returns Policy

Our Returns Policy


Empire Supplies Returns Policy


Our returns policy is in addition to your rights under the Australian Consumer Law because we want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Please read the following carefully to ensure you are fully aware of your rights under this policy and our obligations to you.


Goods on which a change of mind return is not available


Empire Supplies will not accept the return of items from the following categories under the change of mind returns policy under any circumstances:

  • Medicines (Prescribed or Over the Counter)
  • Baby Formula
  • Fragrances
  • Vitamin Supplements

Other returns


Empire Supplies will accept product returns and provide you with an exchange, refund or repair where:

  • The product is faulty or is not of acceptable quality, or
  • Significantly different to those shown or described to you, or
  • The product is not fit for its intended purpose, or
  • The product is unsafe.

You can present your Empire Supplies register receipt, online tax invoice or other adequate proof of purchase.


Empire Supplies may elect to return the product to the manufacturer to determine the nature of the problem. Empire Supplies reserves the right not to offer an exchange, refund or repair where the item fault is a result of misuse or neglect.


Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair goods. Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure and for compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are also entitled to have the goods repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality* and the failure does not amount to a major failure.


*Products must be of acceptable quality, that is:

  • safe, lasting, with no faults
  • look acceptable
  • do all the things someone would normally expect them to do.

Acceptable quality takes into account what would normally be expected for the type of product and cost.


Empire Supplies reserves the right to:


Assess the condition and age of returned goods prior to providing a repair, exchange or refund. This may result in a repair, exchange or refund being refused.


Please note:

  • Your original Empire Supplies register receipt or online tax invoice are the best form of proof of purchase
  • Refunds will be issued using your original payment method
