Business Response:

To Whom it May Concern: We have reviewed Complaint No. 9538807, filed by **** ******* and determined that this complaint is without merit.  There are several itemes that are invalid in her complaint, which is incomplete making it difficult to fully undersatnd.  First, she did not present the "receipt" for the three shirts she was attempting to return.  Second,  she was aware of our "14-day" return period policy since she did have a copy our poilcy, which is included with each sale.  This fact is evidenced by the fact that she had purchased four (4) t-shirts earlier and returned them in a timely manner.  She did receive a full refund on this return as evidenced by the receipts she included in her filing. Moreover, the shirts she tried to return were "specialty event" shirts which generally are not eligible for return under any circumstances.  Plus, the time period for returning product was well past the "14-day" return period.  Even though, she was out of compliance with our return policy, did not have a receipt for the product being returned, and the "specialty" item she was tyring to return was generally not eligible for return, our Retail Manager did attempt to satisfy her by allowing her an "in-store" credit for the full value ($48.75) of the product she tried to return for cash.   This offer was made even though these shirts were already on our "close-out rack" at $5.00 each, since basketball season had ended several weeks prior to the date she was trying to return the shirts. In summary, Kimmel Athletic has always gone "the extra mile" to assure our customers are satisfied with our products and service.  Our record with the BBB confirms that we don't have complaints due to poor policies and lack of effort to make sure our customers are always satisfied.  I believe our attempt to satisfy Ms. *******, even in the worst of circumstances, was more than equitable, but that she just wanted some cash.  I believe our offer for "in-store" credit for the full amount of product she was trying to return without a  receipt and beyond our return policy period was more than generous under the circumstances.   If I can be of further help on this matter, feel free to call me, or our Retail Operations Manager, *** *********.  I can be reached at ###-###-#### and ***'s direct line is ###-###-####. Your prompt attention to resolving this issue with Ms. ******* by informing her that Kimmel Atheltic Supply, did in fact make her a generous offer to satisfy her complaint and therefore her complaint is without merit.
