BBB Accredited Businesses must pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.

Desired Settlement: I would like a refund and them to pay for the chair to be shipped back to them
Customer received chair several months ago. Customer state an issue back and provide photos of the box. We instructed customer on several occasions to provide detailed photos of actual product, description and/or video. This was requested 1st and 2nd week in March. They refused to provide any detail. 2 weeks ago they requested return. Customer does not have issue with chair, they simply do not like it. While this is well outside of our return window, we have instructed customer to return chair (at their expense) to us for refund. They have refused to do ship chair. This claim has been closed.
