TJX / T.J. Maxx / lucas luggage

1 Haines City, FL, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I purchased a piece of Lucas Luggage at the TJ Maxx store in Winter Haven Florida in April of this year to be used on a trip in the fall. I went on the trip as planned but the Lucas Luggage developed a rip and interior protrusion midway through the trip. I had to use duct tape to keep the luggage secure for the return flight. The luggage had a 5 year warranty when I bought it but when I took it back to the store I was told by the manager that TJMaxx did not accept returns after 30 days and that they did not honor manufacturers warranties. I did not consider my problem to be a "return" but a claim against my warranty. If TJ Maxx is not going to honor warranties then they should not be affixed to items. I bought this item in part because of the warranty. I feel duped over the whole transaction. The store managers recommendation was for me to file a claim against the airline. So much for customer service.

    What part of manufacturer warranty do you not get? The warranty is not from the store, it is from the manufacturer. Call them. And yes, file a claim with the airline.

    Lord, are people this thick?

    As a TJ Maxx employee - a customer service coordinator, to be exact - I can assure you that the manager was correct in refusing your return. Our return policy IS a 30 day policy, and furthermore, we do NOT accept used or worn merchandise for return, ESPECIALLY when it is THOROUGHLY USED and OUTSIDE of the 30 day return policy. Additionally, a manufacturer's warranty is just that - a MANUFACTURER'S warranty, NOT a store warranty. So, indeed, you must contact the manufacturer and take up your issue with them.
