Shipping & Returns
A Note from our Team:
While we continue to navigate and respond to current events, North Authentic is committed to making the safety of our employees and community of customers a top priority. As we fulfill orders and process returns at our warehouse, increased safety precautions are being taken at every step, and we are doing everything we can to get your orders and refunds to you as quickly as possible. That said, due to the impact of COVID-19 on our fulfillment center—and on shipping carriers nationwide—we anticipate that both order and return processing may take longer than usual. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
