    I was at the store today to return an unused garden hose and saw that the clerk had multiple bins behind her to aid inventory restocking: 'back of store,' 'front of store,' etc. Makes sense. Nice efficiency, Home Depot.

    Then I saw a Reese's candy bar in the 'front of store' bin. You know, the peanut butter cups. Nicely wrapped, ready for the next customer. I had to admit that the original customer probably was right: if bought at Home Depot, it can be returned to Home Depot. But then I wondered what the customer said when asked the reason for the return.
    • "It didn't fit"
    • "I got home and realized I already had one"
    • "It was the wrong color"
    • "It's broken"
    • "My wife thinks it is ugly"
    • "Wrong connection"

    Defective. Wrong flavor. Too big/too small. Not compatible with my system. Wrong voltage. Incorrect gauge. Color didn't match. Appears to be in used condition.

    The company I work for supplies the big box home hardware companies. I am in these stores constantly dealing with things. When I say they return everything, I am not kidding. I wouldn't even think twice, seeing a candy bar returned.
    I have seen product of mine, an exclusive product to another retailer, that we haven't produced in 15 years returned, that clearly had been stored outside for that entire time.

    If I bought a candy bar and it appeared to be in used condition, you bet your booties I'd return it!
