Needed some bangles in a hurry for a fashion shoot. When I’m organized, I make arrangements to borrow merchandise from stores and most, local or national, are happy to accomodate. Without time to go through proper channels, I ran to Mall of America and gathered up everything I needed at For Love 21 (sister store to Forever 21) where $20 could buy you five bracelets, a hangbag and sunglasses. I found all the current looks I wanted to show — wood bangles, clear bangles, silver and gold. I was feeling quite satisfied at the cash register – until the salesperson mentioned that there are no returns on jewlery. Come again? No returns? As in, never? Not with a receipt? Not within 14 days? Nope. Never. Handbags and a few other things can be returned for store credit only. Yikes. I suppose that’s the price we pay for cheap accessories – (perhaps they know they’ll fall apart in two minutes, and don’t want to chance returns?) – but, wow that seems extremely unfriendly. I took my business to Aldo Accessories – equally cheap, not nearly the selection, but they do take returns with receipts.
