Merchandise returned without a receipt will be reviewed by store associates, and the customer will receive a Rockler gift card for the most recent sales price.

Customer will have to present the original credit card used to receive refund or a Rockler gift card will be issued.
Purchases made with either tender require third party processing, and stores can only issue a Rockler gift card.
Merchandise returns made to a retail store with a receipt may require a mail order check due to limitations of cash on hand in store.
Overview Of Our Online Ordering System
Our online catalog uses "shopping basket technology" to facilitate online ordering. When you start shopping with us, our server automatically assigns you a unique "shopping basket" where you can store products you are interested in purchasing. There is no limit to the amount of products you can have in your basket, and you can add, remove or change the products in your basket at any time before you check out. You can even leave our site and come back within 7 days and your shopping basket will still be waiting for you (assuming you are using the same computer and accept cookies).
There are two ways to add products to your basket, and you can use either one or both:
When you are ready to check out, click the "Check Out" button .

If you ordered from a printed catalog, please enter the 5-character code from the back of your catalog, as well as your customer number. If you ordered from the online catalog, you can leave the catalog code blank, and if you do not know your customer number, you can leave that blank also. Hit "continue" when done.
