Where do our owls deliver?

Quizzic Alley ships to customers in Australia only at this stage but shipping to New Zealand may soon be possible.

Shipping costs

Shipping is completely free for orders over $100 anywhere in Australia. Orders of $100 and below are charged a flat fee of $12.00. Shipping times may vary according to your location and heavy or large items may be subject to an additional shipping fee. Express Post is available for an extra fee.

Refunds and returns policy

At Quizzic Alley we want you to be delighted with your magical purchase. If you’re not, you can return any item for exchange, a refund or a gift voucher. Items must be returned within 60 days from the date of purchase in as-new condition with all labels and packaging intact. Items that have been used, washed or damaged in any way will not be accepted.

Sale items must be returned within 10 days for either an exchange or store credit in the form of a gift voucher. Full refunds do not apply to sale items.

If a collectable product – where intact packaging is integral to the value of that product – arrives with damaged packaging, please report it via email to magic@quizzicalley.com – with supporting photographs – within 48 hours and return as above.

Once we receive your email or the returned item has arrived at Quizzic Alley, a member of the team will make contact with you within 48 hours or on our next normal weekday opening day (noting the Quizzic Alley store is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays).

Returning a product is much easier than conjuring a Patronus

  • Email us at magic@quizzicalley.com with your name, address and phone number and the reason why you would like to return the item. It also helps to include information about the package, particularly the date on which you sent it.
  • Send the goods back to Quizzic Alley. Owls are welcome at Quizzic Alley as are Australia Post employees and couriers.

Sending the item to Quizzic Alley

Any costs associated with returning the item to Quizzic Alley are your responsibility. We recommend that returns are sent via registered post or a freight system that offers a tracking service as we do not accept responsibility for items lost in transit. In some circumstances we are happy to cover the cost of returns:

  • Faulty goods
  • Product not as advertised
  • Item/s arrived too late
  • Item/s is a genuine collectable and the item or packaging has been damaged during shipping
  • We sent the wrong product or the right product in the wrong size

If any of the above situations apply to your item/s, we will pay for the return of the goods. Simply contact our team at thebank@quizzicalley.com and we will provide a mechanism for the return of the item.

Our address

If you are sending an item to Quizzic Alley please use the following address: Quizzic Alley, 191 Victoria Rd, Drummoyne, NSW, 2047, Australia

Items that cannot be returned

Under consumer protection laws there are several exceptions on the return of products. These are as follows: Earrings, underwear and undergarments such as boxer shorts, briefs, sports bras and long johns cannot be exchanged due to health and hygiene regulations.

Restrictions

This return policy relates to the return procedures for products purchased from the Quizzic Alley online store only. If you wish to return a product purchased from the Quizzic Alley store in Fyshwick, Canberra or in Drummoyne, Sydney, you will need to visit one of those stores (you may return a product to a different store from which you made the purchase).

Questions

If you have any questions regarding product returns, please contact us at magic@quizzicalley.com or phone us on 02 61798856.

PARTY BOOKINGS

Payment

A non-refundable deposit (Canberra) or the full amount (Sydney) must be paid at the time of booking to secure that booking. This allows us to buy supplies, order any food and arrange staff to host your party.

You are required to pay any balance (including extras like wands) on the day of the party. The account must be settled immediately after the potions class, if not before.

Date change

You may change the date of your booking at any time up to 14 days prior to the day of the party and any monies paid will be applied to the new date.

Cancellations and no-shows

If you need to cancel your booking within 14 days of the party, a $100 cancellation fee will be retained. However, if we find another taker for that timeslot, we will happily refund any monies paid. If you fail to turn up for your party for whatever reason, any funds paid will be forfeited.

Inclusions

The base party fee is calculated on 10 people (Canberra) and 12 people (Sydney) including the guest of honour but not including any supervising adults. Additional people over that (if permitted) are charged a per head rate. If there are fewer than those respective numbers at your party, you will still be charged the full base rate.

As we have seen with the COVID-19 pandemic, lockdowns and changes to capacity can occur. If either store is forced to close, we will contact all party pre-bookings via email. Please do not call us. Generally, we offer as many postponements as required or store credits to the value of your deposit. Once our store is able to re-open, capacity in our potions classroom may be reduced. Again, we will contact you via email.

Numbers

Capacity in our Canberra classroom is 18 students. A supervising adult (in addition to the Professor) is required for every ten students, eg. a classs of eight students will require one adult supervisor to be in attendance at all times whereas a class of 12 students will require two supervising adults to remain with them for the duration of the class.

Due to the restricted classroom space in our Sydney store (a situation we are trying to improve), the capacity in that room is 12 students with one supervising adult. At capacity, there  is no room for non-paying participants or spectators. If you are booking for fewer than ten students, there may be an opportunity to spectate but please discuss this with the Professor on the day.

Confirmation

A member of the Quizzic Alley team will call you at least one week prior to your party to confirm numbers and final arrangements and to answer any questions you have. Please reply to emails and respond to messages promptly so that we can be prepared for your group.

Food and drink

You are welcome to bring your own cake and party food. Please note we do not permit hot food and have no facilities for re-heating food. We also have a very small fridge so it is not possible to store cold cakes, eg. ice cream cakes. Please do not bring pastry based food, eg. sausage rolls and pies or a $50 cleaning fee may be charged. The supervising parent/adult is solely responsible for supervising the consumption of food and beverages and for the conduct and behaviour of attendees while celebrations, eating and drinking are under way. Plates and eating utensils must be provided by the supervising parent/guardian but there are glasses in the room for QBrew and water. You do not need to bring beverages. The throwing of food and food fights are strictly prohibited. Any evidence of the latter will incur a $50 cleaning fee.

Decorations

The classroom is already decorated so please do not bring wall decorations, party sprinkles, confetti, streamers, party poppers or other party decorations, including pinatas, or a $50 cleaning fee may be charged. You are welcome to bring small decorations for the table.
