Selling broken returned items as new
found useful by 1 person
I bought a paper shredder from Argos. Got it home got it out of the carrier bag and discovered a 2 inch hole punched in the box, which they had stuck a bit of sellotape over. The counter staff at the time of purchase must have put the box with the hole side down on the counter so I couldn't see the hole. On opening the box the shredder wasn't even packed properly, the plastic bags were ripped and torn, basically it had just been chucked in the box. Worse was when I inspected the paper collector, it had a split in the plastic in the same position as the hole in the box. I'm totally disgusted with Argos for selling obviously returned/damaged stock... what if the plug had been damaged without me noticing and I had tried to plug it in? Argos will be a 'last resort' for me in the future.
