Gift Cards are valid for a limited time only. The card will expire if it has not been used for 5 consecutive years and any remaining balance will be deleted. Once deleted a card will not be replaced. Please note that checking a balance in store constitutes use of the card and it is not necessary to make a purchase.

The cost of anything you buy with the card and return to store in accordance with the The Shoe Horn Returns Policy will be refunded to the gift card. This does not affect your statutory rights.

The holder of the card is responsible for its security and lost or stolen cards will not be replaced.
