Policies on return of purchases
Sizes are not usually standardized in Prague so it’s wise to try on your purchased clothes first and make sure that they fit well or else you will have a hard time returning these bought goods. This is because Czech law provides that goods be entitled a two-year warranty, and the longer you keep the purchase, the harder it is for you to return them.
Accepting returns are upon discretion of the store manager but more often than not, you have no choice but to keep your purchase instead.
Receipts entitle customers 30-day grace period for returns a full refund, store credit, or exchange, but there are cases that exchange of items for a different size, color, or equally priced garment happens if you don’t have your receipt for the item you are exchanging for. Policies vary among shops though, and since you might not get your money back, you’d be asked to buy more items to make things “even”.
Fashion in Prague can be a bit expensive. You might find end-of-the-season sales to be practical and not so passe.
Clearance sales for summer apparels happen in late August. Clothing for the cold seasons can still be bought at sale prices in January through mid-February but you just have to keep a keen eye for stores that offer this.
Winter jackets, scarves and hats are usually on display and sold in October in preparation of the winter cold. Wardrobes for fall are sold after the summer sales while summer clothes start to appear on display after Easter. Spring clothing are also sold in February.
