We look forward to providing our customers with a great consignment shopping experience. This begins by having a clear understanding of our store policies regarding purchases.
In Store Policies:
Social Distancing: We require all our customers to wear a mask as recommended by the CDC and State of CT, and to practice safe social distancing while in the store. We will be doing our part by wearing masks and gloves as well, and cleaning down surfaces frequently between customers. Thank you for your patience at this time.
Payment: Your purchases made at The Cedar Chest stores may be made with cash or by credit card. We currently accept Visa, Mastercard. American Express and Discover Card. We do not accept personal checks.
Return Policy: Please be aware that all sales are final. We do not accept returns in our stores. We do not do exchanges. We are a consignment store, and must uphold our agreement with our consignors. Please inspect all items carefully prior to purchasing.
Sales Tax: 6.35% Connecticut sales tax is added to all items sold at our CT stores or shipped within the state. If you are purchasing from us online or on our eBay storefront, there is no sales tax applied for items shipped outside of Connecticut.
Bags: As of August 1, 2019, the State of Connecticut will be collection a 10¢ tax on all plastic bags handed out in store. On July 1, 2021, the State of Connecticut is planning to ban all single-use plastic checkout bags. The Cedar Chest is working to find a solution to this new legislation, including selling re-usable bags and considering paper bags. This legislation came up very suddenly, and we are all still adjusting to the change. We encourage customers to bring in their own reusable shopping bags in the meanwhile.
