Bought a few bits in a Next outlet centre last week. I only want to keep one item and return three. I can't find the receipt - not thrown it away but cannot find it anywhere. I paid by card so I have a record of the purchase. If I take everything back along with the skirt I want to keep will they refund, do you think? Or credit note? I don't mind either, I just don't want to be stuck with a load of stuff I don't want!
If the goods were faulty then your card statement would be sufficient to enforce your statutory rights, but a change of mind return is contractual so the proof required may be different (in this case, a receipt).
On the other hand, you might get a friendly staff member that overlooks that and just refunds.
A normal Next store can track every purchase via the label barcode.
If you mean the price tag the bar code is not unique, it is the same on all of the tags for that item. They'd be able to track the sales for the item, but if it's a popular item that wouldn't narrow it down. The official policy is that the refund given is the current selling price.
I think it may be called RFID? They scanned the price tag and info about when I bought the item was read to me from the cashiers screen - I was very impressed. They knew the date I bought the item! Which was longer ago then I thought! The item was no longer in stock so they gave me a gift card. I was impressed by the customer service tbh.
