    Ok so I bought this coat from matalan but I bought the wrong size (,I'm a size 10 but the coat is 12) and it's way too loose, and makes my shoulders look way bigger than they actually are. but I really like the coat and wanted to exchange it. But the thing is I lost the receipt. What should I do? Do you think they'll let me exchange it?

      No they won't. I worked in a charity shop and if they follow anything like the procedure we had they have to keep the receipt for record keeping if they give out a refund.

      Yes they will. http://www.matalan.co.uk/fcp/content...eturns/content

      They'll exchange or give refund in vouchers according to their website.

      The coat has matalan written on the inside, does that help? Or how about a bank statement proving the purchase?

        I stand corrected. But I remain unconvinced by their claims. How would they ever know who is genuine and who isn't without a receipt?

        I worked at new look and you could return an item for exchange or credit provided it still has the tag attached - receipt meant you could get your physical money back

        I guess it's down to trust and goodwill. There's no guarantee that they will accept for an exchange or believe that you are a genuine customer and is probably more down to the cashier or manager's mood at the time and their suspicions.

        It's likely, they will either offer an exchange or put the amount on to a gift card/ credit note/ voucher as most retail companies
