All Sales Final... Even If Merchandise Is BROKEN!!!
I purchased a gift for a friend in this store. Behind the register, I noticed the personal vaporizers, asked to look at them, and decided to purchase one.
I purchased the vaporizer at 4pm, and took it home to charge it before the first use. Upon charging the item, it was clear that it did not work, but it was past store hours... no problem I thought... will exchange it tomorrow.
I went back to the store about an hour after it opened, the next day, and showed the clerk that it didn't work. He plugged it in, confirmed it did not work, and told me he could do nothing for me. No exchange. nothing?!
He walked over to a side display wall, about 15 feet away from the sales register, and pulled apart two gay pride streamers to reveal a sign... ';All Sales Final'. Without his pulling it apart, all I would have seen was 'All Ale Ina'... but who expects that sign to be 15 feet away from the register? Shouldn't the sign have been right next to the sales register, where it would be noticed when making a purchase?
I understand some people decide to try and get away with sales policies like this, because they can... but shouldn't working merchandise be sold in the first place? Is it not illegal to sell faulty merchandise, presented as working merchandise?
The only up side to my story is that I didn't purchase the most expensive vaporizer, so I only threw away $80.00. But I've never thrown money away before... guess it takes some getting used to.
I will never purchase another item at this store, and will continue to tell everyone I can not to purchase anything there.
Scam Merchandise at Full Retail Prices... such a deal.
Sick new headshop in wrigleyville – So I was walking down Halsted and I noticed a new headshop that I had never seen before... the place just opened up and they have a great assortment of glass pipes and bongs(just dont call them bongs in the store lol). What surprised me was the reasonable pricing compared to the other stores in the wrigleyville area. I even bought a few nice cigars, they have a sick selection. Great new place that I'm going to visit frequently.
