Yes, please do. All you have to do is call first to let us know you're coming on 01462 677970. We're close to junction 9 of the A1. The full address is Our postal address is Unit 2 Pixmore Business Centre, Pixmore Avenue, Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire, SG6 1JG, UK.
I'm outside the UK. Do I have to pay sales tax (VAT)?
Yes if you're in the European Union (EU) but not if you're in the Channel Islands or countries outside the EU (eg the USA, Canada, Australia, China, Japan etc) .
Be aware - not all hosiery retailers remove the VAT for non-EU customers. Some well known sites charge the same price everywhere in the world, so if you're outside Europe you're paying 20% more than you should be and they're pocketing the extra as profit. Naughty.
If you live outside the EU there is a small chance you may instead be required to pay import duty when the parcel is delivered. That will be collected locally by your postman. There is no import duty for customers within the EU.
How long will my order take?
In general we try to send all orders within 24 hours, although during promotional periods it can get a bit hectic. If your order is urgent, please let us know. Standard UK orders normally arrive within 1-2 days for first class mail (Royal Mail 24) and a day or so later for second class (Royal Mail 48)
Europe takes about three days, while the rest or the world takes five or six.
What is printed on the packaging?
Nothing apart from your address. All orders are sent in plain envelopes. The return address is stated as Pure Fiction Media as that is our registered company name.
What is your returns policy?
If you're not completely happy or you simply change your mind, you can return anything you buy for a full refund or exchange at any time within 30 days of delivery. Products should be returned in an as-new condition in their original packaging in case we need to return them to the manufacturer.
All you have to do is return the item with a note of your order number (a copy of the invoice would be ideal) and clear instructions of whether you want a refund or exchange - and if so what you would like us to send you instead.
The returns address is: Returns Department, Tights And More, Unit 2 Pixmore Business Centre, Pixmore Avenue, Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire, SG6 1JG, UK.
What will appear on my card statement?
Pure Fiction Media SHQ.
Why is the company called Pure Fiction Media Ltd?
Our first web site, Pure Fiction, was about bestselling novels and how to write them. The company was registered in 1997 and morphed from there to where we are today. Sadly the old Pure Fiction site is no longer maintained as we could never find the time to do it justice, but we keep the name in honour of the past.
