Big Lots Complaint - Horrible off-market experience
I have avoided this store ever since a few bad local experiences years back. No surprise, they have only one store left in my area...And a lousy 30-day return policy.
Well, during the Memorial weekend in Shipshewanna, my friend decided we would stop just to see if they actually carried anything for computers. I was a good sport.
They actually did carry SOME off-market electronics, in the front case, including notebook cooling fans, and because it was priced under $16, I decided to give it a shot.
I got home and plugged it in. Great, it actually WORKS. For about one week. Then, curiously some time later, though you could hear it running, my laptop was starting to warm again. That didn't make sense. A laptop fan is supposed keep your PC temp level when your laptop is used for extended periods (yes laptops come with built in fans, but are limited in their ability.) Needless to add, I ended up going to Office Max to purchase a market-brand cooling fan, and ditched the Big Lots one. It is junk, and I should have known better. AND, a lousy 30-day return policy, at that.
I give the chain a D+
