Holiday Fashion Returns

Yippie, Santa Claus did show up this year.  And yes, he did look very trendy in his red & white suit. 

Fortunately for my family, he only delivered clothing and fashion accessories to our home this year.  Did you fair as well?  I am sad for those of you that were not so lucky.  I have heard horror stories about some people actually receiving flat screen televisions, mobile electronics, new cars, and even candy this year. If you received something other than clothes, it is suggested that you check to see if Santa Claus has a return policy.  Hopefully you can trade in those silly electronics and get yourself a new Christmas sweater, underwear or holiday motif socks.

Going with the assumption that Santa does not take back gifts under any circumstance, I assume that many fashion retailers will be forced to take product back on his behalf.  They will gladly help old Saint Nick, if they want to stay off his naughty retailer list.  

What will the stores do with all of that returned merchandise?

The good news is that most consumers will be "returning" electronics and not clothes.  Smart people that receive clothing, will typically be making "exchanges" rather than seek a full refund.  Think about it.  Why would anyone in their right mind take clothes back to a store and walk out with nothing new to wear?  That would be beyond silly.

If you are curious to find the answer to the question, "What are clothing store returns?", you are welcome to read the new term we added this morning in our fashion terminology section.

Hopefully the retailers don't seek a return authorization from the wholesalers.

Support the fashion industry and don't return any clothing.  Only make exchanges for a new color or size.

Always pick fashion before electronics for your holiday & post-holiday shopping.
