At Hippo Hug, we are happy to offer a “Try Before You Buy” program to local Calgary shoppers.
We understand that our weighted blankets are an investment and we want you to be sure it is the solution for you before you commit. If you are interested in our trialling or borrowing a weighted blanket, we use your height and weight to get an approximate size and weight for the blanket to give you the best idea of what might work for you.
All weighted blankets are sent out with a washable cover so that you don’t have to be concerned about pets etc. in your home. All the covers are removed upon return and washed, the blankets are wiped with disinfectant to ensure they are ready to be loaned to the next person.
We also have a limited number of loaner blankets. If we do not have a blanket in an appropriate weight or size, you can choose to be added to our waitlist and we will contact you when one is available. Wait times should be no longer than two weeks as we find most people know within two weeks if the blanket is working for them.
Borrowing a blanket requires a $75 deposit, you can try the blanket for a couple weeks to see if it is the right solution/size/weight for you, most people have a good idea if it works after 3 or 4 nights. The We will get in touch on a weekly basis to see how things are working for you.
Upon deciding it is the right fit for you the $75 deposit will be put toward the purchase of a blanket. If you decide it is not for you the rental fee of $25 a week is applied, and any difference is refunded upon return of the trial weighted blanket. This means if you have the blanket for a week you receive a $50 refund from your deposit, if you have the blanket for four weeks you will be charged an additional $25 for that extra week once the blanket is returned.
Any blankets kept longer than four weeks will be considered purchased and the credit card on file will be charged. Customers wishing to use cash or debit will have to place a deposit for the full purchase price of the blanket.
We are located in S.E Calgary, near Chinook mall and the Silk Plant Warehouse. Our address is 246 62 Avenue SE Calgary AB T2H 2E6. Currently, the trial program is available to people who live in or near Calgary and can come into our store to pick up the loaner blanket and drop it back off after the borrowing period as is cost prohibitive to the user to ship a weighted blanket for trial purposes. All of our blankets are made locally in Calgary, Alberta Canada.
While you are trying the weighted blanket and have any questions or wish to try a lighter/heavier blanket please get in touch with the store and we will be happy to help find the right fit. If the blanket is working for you, you are welcome to continue your borrowing period until your order is ready for pick up.
