A message from our CEO, Rachel Osborne
Dear valued Customers,
These are difficult and challenging times for everyone, and I wanted to write to you personally to let you know some of the things we are doing to respond.
Ted Baker is a global family. Made up of thousands of members, across hundreds of stores in over 50 countries worldwide. Like you, we’re dealing with this time of uncertainty. Together, we’re working hard to keep our global community safe and our loyal customers satisfied, taking our lead from government guidelines and health organisations across our many territories in order to react properly to what is a complex and fast-moving situation.
While we’ve temporarily closed some of our stores, and inevitably others will follow, we’re planning to keep as many as possible open - for as long as it is safe to do so. We’re taking extra steps to keep our stores clean and have switched to a cashless system to reduce contamination risks. We’re also adapting our store trading hours but are reachable around the clock on our website and social channels.
We have also made some changes to our online services. We've switched off Click and Collect in case we have to close stores at short notice and you can’t get your order. We have also extended our returns period from 14 to 30 days as it may take longer for you to be able to return an order. We continue to look at new ways of improving our customer experience online as we make our way through this and are listening to our customers’ needs.
Like everybody, we’re doing all we can to keep things moving. We’re learning day by day what the best course of action is but imagine there will be a few stumbles along the way. We ask you to bear with us and really do appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
For now, stay tuned to our social channels, join the conversations and let us know what else we can do in the upcoming weeks. Now more than ever we want to take your minds off the challenges we are all facing. And whilst our stores remain closed, our community is always open.
Stay safe and remember, we’re all in this together.
Here at Ted, we’re keeping a close eye on how the coronavirus pandemic develops across the globe. As the situation unfolds, we’re committed to prioritising the wellbeing of our employees and customers.
Ted doesn’t usually do things by the book, but on this occasion, we’re sticking to the rules. On the advice of health officials and the World Health Organisation, we’re stepping up our efforts to minimise the risk to our local and global communities. From working from home and limiting travel to maintaining stricter hygiene routines, we’re taking our responsibility seriously.
We pride ourselves on impeccable service but anticipate deliveries and other queries may take a little longer than usual. Like everybody, we’re doing our best under trying circumstances and ask you to bear with us.
As always, we’re grateful for your loyalty and look forward to seeing you in-store soon. In the meantime, www.tedbaker.com remains open for business. Please email us or reach out via live chat if you’d like to get in touch.
Selected Ted stores will be open again in Holland from 29th April. To ensure the ongoing wellbeing of our employees and customers we have put strict measures into place, including:
How long will my order take?
While we're working around the clock to keep our online services ticking over smoothly, our standard delivery times may change from 3-5 days to 7-10 days. Please bear with us while we ensure our teams are protected during this time by respecting social distancing guidelines in our warehouse and following all safety procedures our delivery carriers require.
Refunds and exchanges
In order to maintain the safety of Ted’s warehouse staff our online returns processes will be much more stringent to ensure maximum care is taken when processing inbound parcels. Fear not, you will receive an email once your order has been checked in – and a further email to confirm your refund/exchange has been processed.
This safer procedure might take us a little longer than you are used to but will still be completed within our usual 14-day window.
I normally return my online order to a Ted Baker store. Now they are closed, what can I do?
We have recently made the difficult decision to close some our stores to help battle the Covid19 epidemic.
You can return your online Ted Baker order to Teds warehouse for a refund or exchange within our extended 30 day returns policy. To see how to return your order, please visit Teds returns page.
I placed a Click and Collect online order, but now stores are closed. What are my options?
Our UK stores recently have closed to help battle the Covid19 epidemic. Due to these closures, all outstanding Click and Collect customer orders will be returned to Ted's Warehouse where we can arrange alternate delivery for you.
If you believe your order to be one of those affected by these closures - please contact Ted's Customer Service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I made a purchase in a Ted Baker standalone store, can I post it back for a refund?
As we have recently made the decision to close some of our stores to help battle the Covid19 epidemic Ted has extended his returns policy from 14 to 30 days to help allow for this.
We are unable to accept store purchases back at our warehouse or any concession partners. Once our stores re-open you will have the opportunity to make your return then.

Gender Pay Report
Here at Ted, we’re passionate about having a company as diverse as our customer base. Our team members represent more than 68 nationalities worldwide, with 44 in our London HQ alone.
In terms of gender diversity, we’ve made a number of significant female senior appointment in the past year, but while women are well represented at the very top and in our overall workforce, there’s more work to be done to develop and grow female senior leaders from within.
When it comes to gender pay, we’ll be completely upfront; there’s an imbalance. We still have a gap between average male and female earnings but we’re taking steps to reduce that - ultimately our aim is to eliminate the gap altogether.
On 24th March 2020, the Equalities Commission said that gender pay reporting was not compulsory and only around 50% of organisation have shared theirs. At Ted, gender parity matters, and we’re absolutely committed to making progress in a meaningful and practical way. That’s why we’re now sharing our Gender Pay Report with the snapshot date of 5th April 2019 so you can see where we’re at and what action we’re taking.
