Additional Notes

Complaint: No Refunds or Exchanes or in store credit.I bought a Relic civil war pistol marked as " Dug up in Larado Texas" Paid in Cash, walked into the sunlight found the pistol to be a modern replica that has been aged. I asked for a refund or exchange for another item, they refused pointing to a small sign behind the counter stating "No Refunds". When I stated this item was misrepresented and marked to decieve, they refused any solution saying that they can't have return policys for everything like "blue plates returned on tuesday" and other non-sense. they then asked me to leave stating that they had already called the police.

Desired Settlement: I Paid around $ 165.00 I want my money returned I will mail them this Fake item

Business Response: **** ********* ********* ********* ** ******** ***** ******** ***** ******* **** ****** ******** ** ********

On the afternoon of July 19, 2014,
I unlocked a display case and showed two items to a customer,
identified in this complaint as Mr. ***** *****. As he discussed with
me his expertise in the area of old firearms and extensive research
he had completed in the past on a variety of firearm related items I
noted a strong smell of alcoholic beverage on his breath. He
thoroughly inspected and physically handled both items.

One item displaying the tag
reading “ 44 Blk Powder Richland Arms # 194 $ 150.00” on the
reverse reading “ dug up in Lantry Tx $ 150.00” . ( See
attachment # 1 )

The second reading “ 44 Blk
Powder Richland Arms $ 125.00 # 194” on the reverse reading “
dug up in Lantry, Tx $ 125.00” . ( See attachment # 2 )

After his inspection of both items
he chose the first item. I closed/ locked the display case and took
the item to the front checkout counter. After some time he came to
the counter wishing to pay for his item. We asked if he would like to
wait for the woman who was shopping with him. He replied “ No.”
The transaction was completed without incident as he was thanked and
given his item and his receipt. Clearly printed on a sign at customer
eye level is a sign stating “ All Sales Are Final Sorry, no
refunds” ( see attachment # 3 ). Clearly printed on his receipt are
the words “ All Sales are Final “

(see attachment # 4 ) Customer *****
took his item and exited the store.

Approximately 8 – 10 minutes
later he returned to the front counter and said “ well, I guess I'm
going to have to get that other one” I believed he wished to
purchase the second item he had inspected and I went to the case to
retrieve the item. Upon my return to the front counter with the item
I overheard that he did not want to purchase the item but to return
item # 1 and exchange for item # 2.

It was explained to him that all
sales are final. He said it's not posted anywhere. Both myself and
the other employee, **** *** *********, turned around and indicated
the sign. We also stated that is was printed on his receipt. The
female with Mr. ***** made comment that you can't read the receipt
until after you checkout. He commented that we should have a
different type of policy suggesting that if an item is a firearm or '
antique' maybe we should allow returns. The antique mall theory,
with each booth being a different vendor, and the nature of antiques
and collectibles prevents such selective type of returns or exchanges
was explained to Mr. *****.

I gathered up item # 2 and
returned it to the proper display case in the west side building of
the complex. As I closed the case I heard Mr. ***** yelling at the
top of his voice as he walked through the front portion of the east
and middle buildings ..Don't buy anything here these people will rip
you off. This stuff is fake...don't buy anything here they'll rip
you off. This place is a rip off”.

I walked toward him as he was
yelling and stepped in front of him. I said because he was being
disorderly he would need to leave. He turned around and began
walking, while still yelling, to the front door. Out of concern for
the safety of our customers, many of whom are older people or
families with small children, Ms. ********* dialed the Midland Police
Department to come escort him from the property. As he reached the
thresh hold of the front door he turned his head around and yelled at
“ You can kiss my *** *** *******
*****! “ With that he exited the building.

Respectfully Submitted,

******* ***** * *******
