Holiday returns may have hidden fees for Bronx residents
A consumer group is warning Bronx residents of some hidden fees that may come along with holiday returns and exchanges.
According to a New York Public Interest Research Group (NYPIRG) survey, some stores have hidden re-stocking fees on refunds and exchanges. The survey also says some retailers do not allow any returns or exchanges.
The group recommends consumers ask the store about its return policies or look for any posted return policy signs. Some stores will ask customers for personal information such as Social Security numbers. NYPIRG says shoppers should avoid those businesses.
