Orders/Returns Policies

In-Store Purchases

We want our customers to be happy with the purchase they made at The Teachers’ Lounge. If you purchase an item in our store that you are unhappy with, it can be returned at any time as long as the item is in re-sellable condition. A receipt will allow us to refund your purchase price. If you don’t have a receipt and are a Lounge Lizard Club member, we will do our best to find a copy of your receipt in your purchase history. If a receipt is not available, we will exchange your item for another item in our store or provide a store credit for the last purchased price of the returned item.

Of course, if the item is defective, please contact our store immediately so that we can make the situation right.

On-Line Purchases

Credit Cards
The Teachers' Lounge™ is 100% PCI Compliant and we NEVER store your credit card information. Our site integrates with Paygistics Web system to tokenize your credit card on their secure system. Using server-side encryption, we store that token issued from Paygistics and can use this information later to issue credits on your card. Tokens expire within months and could never be used by any other party to charge your card.

We ask that our web customers be choosy when selecting products.
Any return of an item /items purchased on our website must happen at our retail store. You can bring in your product or ship it to the store:

The Teachers' Lounge
Attn: Web Returns
21 Ronnies Plaza
St. Louis, MO 63126

If you are returning an item, we'd appreciate a call letting us know it is coming.

FOR ALL WEB ORDER RETURNS THERE IS A 20% RESTOCKING FEE.

If an item needs to shipped back to the store, the shipping cost is the responsibility of the purchaser. Once the item is received in re-sellable condition we will refund the credit card that was used to purchase the item/items.

Naturally if an item is defective, please contact us for a replacement. If an item is damaged in shipment, please refuse delivery of the package. Once it is received, it is much harder for us to file a claim.
