Q: What happens if my card has expired with unspent money left on it ? Can it be extended?

A: Yes! We are sympathetic to the retail challenges faced during Covid and want you to get the best value from your Gift Card. Call us on 01227 787 055 if you need help with this or email us at and we will do our best to resolve this for you.
