No, they rarely wash the things they sell, they usually use a steamer to ruffle out any creases whilst it is hanging on a hanger, but when I volunteered at one of the shops they definately didn't wash the stuff.

Give it a good wash first. loads of fabric conditioner and febreeze it when it is up hanging to dry, the smell should be long gone at the end of it.
