How can we help?

FAQ

In Store Shopping

What are your hours?

Monday to Saturday
11 to 8 

Sunday
11 to 6

Are your change rooms open?

No, unfortunately at the moment our change rooms are not open.

We suggest coming into the store wearing thin layers because you are free to try anything on over your clothing.

We hope to change this in the future when we have the staffing options! Thank you for your understanding.

Do you accept returns?

For most items, we offer a return for store credit that you can use at a later time.

When shopping, please check the tag of the product to see if it’s final sale or not. 

You have 14 days to bring your unwanted items back with the tags attached and your receipt to get store credit.

Online Store Shopping

How can I reach Online Store Staff?

If you have any questions regarding a current or future online order, please email us at doubletake@ysm.ca or use our contact form.

Can I see something before purchasing online?

Of course!

If you would like to see online items in person, feel free to come into the store during our customer service hours. Ask any of our store associates for online assistance and they will lead you to an online staff member.

If you would like to see 10+ items, we would recommend to email us in advance with an approximate time you will be in the store and what items you're interested in. This just makes sure that we can guarantee you will have a staff member available to help you!

What are your online customer service hours?

Monday-Friday: 11:30am-6:00pm

Saturday-Sunday: 11:00am-6:00pm

Note:

If you're interested in seeing some items, please arrive 15 minutes before the end of online customer service hours so that we have time to get your items and package your order. Thanks for your understanding.

What size should I buy?

Since we sell secondhand clothing, it's not guaranteed that the size tags on our garments will be accurate to their fit. To combat this we take special care to provide accurate and extensive measurements of all garments/accessories posted on our online store. We always recommend checking the measurements available in our product descriptions.

How do I check the status of my order?

For Pickup Orders: When your order has been packed in store you will receive an email stating that your order is ready to pick up. While orders are typically packaged day of, please allow up to 48 hours for your order to be ready for pickup.

For Shipping Orders: When your order has shipped, you will receive an email notification from us which will include a tracking number you can use to check its status. Please allow 48 hours for the tracking information to become available. 

Can I cancel my order?

We completely get it, we change our minds too! We are able to cancel depending of the status order. Please contact us at doubletake@ysm.ca as soon as possible so we can see if your order can still be cancelled.

Shipping, Returns & Exchanges

You can pick up our order at our store for free or get your order shipped, using Canada Post. You’ll be asked to select the delivery method during checkout.

What is the shipping policy?

Once your order is placed, you will receive a confirmation email letting you know that our fulfillment team has received your order. Once your order is fulfilled, you will receive an email notification with your tracking information. Shipping fees are non-refundable in the case of returns.

What is the pickup policy?

Please bring your confirmation email or a valid identification (A provincial photo identification or a driver's license) when you come to collect your order by the cashier.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes!

We are very proud to ship worldwide! If you are outside of Canada/USA we would recommend contacting us at doubletake@ysm.ca prior to purchasing as shipping/import tax rates may vary between countries

Volunteering With Us

How can I volunteer with you?

Short Term
To volunteer with us in the short term, please see our in-a-pinch positions available. If you have never volunteered with us before, you will be prompted to create a volunteer hub account to keep track of your hours and positions. 

Long Term
If you are looking for a more long-term positon with opportunities to take on projects of your own, please see our available positions here. 

Long-term positions are at least 6 months in length with various weekly shift requirements. After applying, we will meet with you virtually to see if you are a good fit for our team and then you can get started with us!
If you are interested but have a full schedule, please still apply and we can accommodate you! 

I cannot see any sorting shifts available!

Our in-the-pinch sorting shifts are some of most popular! If you cannot see a shift available that meets your schedule, then that shift is likely full. Please keep an eye out for future shift openings or cancellations. 

If you are scheduled for our sorting shift and are unable to attend, please cancel your shift so someone else has the opportunity to attend. Volunteers who regularly sign up for shifts and no show will be unable to sign up to volunteer with us in the future.

I am having trouble with Volunteer Hub!

If you are having trouble with volunteer hub (recording your hours, making an account, etc) you can email Volunteer Services at volunteer@ysm.ca. Please include any relevant information so they can help you out. 

Again, if you do not see the shift you want available, then it is full and we unfortunately do not have room to accommodate any more volunteers that day!

Can I get a letter confirming my volunteer hours?

Yes, of course! If you are looking for a letter outlining the hours you’ve worked at YSM please contact Volunteer Services at volunteer@ysm.ca.
