    Returning Unwanted Goods - CT Has the Worst Policies

    Keep in mind that the Crappy Stores may apply a definiton of "used" that's very different from how ordinary people would define the term.

    Sure, manufacturer's warranties are ok, and they are common knowledge – most people have seen those sheets that come in the box with new products. But the important thing for consumers to know about, is the “implied” warranty that the retailers are required by law to provide to consumers, in...
