I have 3 nieces, all of which I bought clothes for over the holidays for Christmas. Unfortunately, not all of the clothes I bought were the right sizes, so I gave my sister the receipt so that she could either exchange them or refund them and buy the kids whatever they want.
I guess my sister decided to refund them and purchase some clothes at another retailer because they were having a big clothing sale of some sort. However, the store (Target) that she tried to return the clothes to DENIED her a refund for the clothing items. The claimed that there were too many items (clothing) being returned too later after Christmas (their return policy is 90 days) and that because she had also returned a few other items earlier in the year that they would be unable to give her a refund. I guess she asked to speak to a manager and the manager said they couldn't do a refund because of the possibility that it could be return fraud.
I was pretty dumbfounded to hear this. Can retailers do this? Can they legally not return the items you bought from their store when you have a receipt and are within the return time-frame? I can see how they can do the refund and then ban you from the store, but to not do it at all?!
Any info would be great. By the way, this is in Michigan.
