Christmas Season Ends, Season of Returns Begins


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KFTA)– While the Christmas season is ending, the season of returns is just beginning.

Last year, Americans were projected to take back about $90,000,000 worth of gifts.

That’s according to research done by Optoro, a logistics firm in Washington.

Large retailers like Walmart and Target have a 90-day return policy, but if you’re trying to return an electronic item, your window of opportunity narrows.

Electronics from Target must be returned in 30-days, but if you bought an electronic from JCPenny, you only have 48-hours to get your money back.

If you’re shopping locally, you have a better chance of finding flexibility in the return policy. 

The CEO and co-founder of Fayettechill, Mo Elliott, said “We call it the Ozark mountain family guarantee. So we back our products with a lifetime guarantee.”

While Fayettechilll has this policy, it won’t be the same for every store.

The best way to avoid frustration inside the store is checking the policy online before you go, or calling the store directly.
