Were They Helpful?
We called Banana Republic customer service at 1-888-277-8953. The call was answered by an automated voice that asked us to choose an option, but none of the options were associated with a return. We chose the More Options option, but none of the options in the second list had anything to do with returns. Finally we chose Existing Orders and then Returns and Exchanges. The call was then transferred to a customer service representative who told us we needed to print the return label and mail the package to the Groveport address. The total call lasted more than five minutes; three of which were spent making it through the automated system.
