Can I return items purchased at a discount to the store?

I’m running here the other day home from work, the mood is wonderful, in my pocket salary, towards a smiling stream of people. Rejoices people, spring felt in the air. And shops, shops, so temptingly wink at red shop windows, promising unearthly, 70 percent discounts. “And I am a woman, a simple shopping-dependent woman,” I try to justify myself and turn off to the nearest seductive shop. Half an hour later, happy and contented, I continue on my way home, only my hands are tingling pleasantly with a bright cardboard bag with a coarse tartan skirt. True, it wasn’t possible to measure it properly, fifteen minutes remained before closing, but nothing, on the mannequin she looked so wonderful, and my size … I can’t stand it, I call Natasha and promise to kill everyone at work with a smart update. The next day, not only Natasha, but all the girls looked at my old jeans in surprise and looked at each other. They did not dare to ask at first, it was clearly written on the face that something was wrong … And then, when they learned that the zipper on the skirt turned out to be faulty, they scolded me for inattention first and then calmed down. Despite all the warning signs, you can return the product at a discount. Get used to always take checks all purchased items. So it will be much easier to prove that you have purchased the item you are making a claim to, in this particular store. But do not worry, even if you forgot to take the check. First, friends who were close at the time of purchase, have the right to act as witnesses and confirm that the purchase was made here. And secondly, you can show the article indicated on the product label. Indeed, in each store such items of all products are recorded for accounting. And if the articles presented by you and recorded in the store coincided, the store must acknowledge that the item was purchased by you here. Remember: goods purchased at a discount, not defective (there must be marks on damaged items that are wrong with it, and you don’t have the right to return such a thing, you are informed in advance), but only outdated (or its season is over , or the fashion for such models has passed, or simply this product is stale and does not sell well), this does not make it worse or less quality. Therefore, if at the beginning of the socks the thing deteriorated (for example, it stretched out during washing or, conversely, sat down), then this is not your problem, but the manufacturer. Therefore, you have the full right to go to the store and present your claims to the seller. Feel free to refer to the “Law on the Protection of Consumer Rights”, in this case it is completely on your side. In addition, despite the period of storage established by the manufacturer, you have the right to submit your claims no later than 2 years. If the sellers are particularly harmful and do not want to take the thing back and return the damage to you, and even blame you for the improper use of the product, be sure to contact the experts. In each city there are expert centers, having passed the thing to which, after the examination, you will receive a document stating who is to blame for the appearance of the defect. In the case of your innocence, the store will return you money not only for the purchased item, but also for the examination. Money for a skirt, by the way, was returned to me after a brief argument. And now I will confidently assert my rights in such cases. May thus, by joint efforts, we will ever achieve that there will simply be no low-quality things in our market.
