I went into the Sears Store in Rego Park, New York, Saturday, September 20, to return a Sony 2-Speaker Home Theater System purchase on 09/05/2008

Using a very unprofessional and confrontational approach, I was told by their sales staff that there would be a 15% restocking fee The stereo was in the original box and looked like it had never been opened and brought back to the store within 2 weeks of purchase. I have a note from the store manager written all items received.

The restocking fee does not apply as the item was in the original box and packaging and met the requirements of Sears Return & Cancellations Policy

I also e-mailed and phoned their National Customer Relations to look into this. I explained to the representative that the product returned was in the original box. She then changed the reason for the 15% fee! Open box!. Never again SEARS!
