Claire's is required to charge sales and use tax according to Federal and State guidelines. Tax is calculated based on the shipping address and the appropriate rules for that tax jurisdiction. Note that the taxes presented at time of order submission are only an estimate. Final calculation of applicable taxes will be performed when the order ships, and your credit card is charged.
By submitting your order via the Site, you agree to pay the purchase price for the items you selected plus shipping and handling costs, and applicable sales tax. Depending on the tax laws in your state, you may be required to pay use tax on purchases for which we do not collect sales tax. The tax rate applied to your order will generally be the combined state and local rate for the address where your order is shipped.

ShopRunner FREE 2-Day Shipping - How quickly will my items arrive?
"2-Day" Shipping means that the item(s) will arrive at the shipping address within 2 business days from the time it leaves the warehouse. There is some variation in how quickly Claire's is able to process and ship orders. Both ShopRunner and Claire's are committed to do our best to ensure that product is delivered within 2 days from the time the order is placed.
However, certain factors can result in longer delivery times, including the time of day you place the order. There are store shipping "cut-off" times each day. Orders received before store cut-off times are shipped that day. Orders shipped after cut-off times are shipped out the next day. Please consult our shipping page for more specific cut-off time information. Additionally, out-of-stock, personalized and customized products are shipped so that they will arrive within 2 business days from the time Claire's ships the product. In most cases, we will publish shipping policies for these items.
Please use this chart as a general guideline to estimate order arrival time:
|If you order before 12:00 p.m. (noon) EST on the following days:||You can expect it to arrive:|

How to Return Merchandise
Our merchandise can be returned or exchanged in our stores within 60 days (90 days with a gift receipt) in its original condition, including all tags and other item packaging, for a full refund.

Exclusions: Items marked "Online Only" may be returned only by mail.
By Shipment: If you ordered your merchandise from us online, and would like to make a return by mail, you must pack the merchandise in its original, unused condition, including tags and packaging, along with the return form provided in your order shipment.

Please allow 14 business days for receipt and processing of your returned merchandise. When the return is approved, we will issue a credit to the original payment method or, for returns with a gift receipt, send a store credit in the form of a gift card.
