I purchased a side by side refrigerator in August of 2011 (floor model on sale and because it had a couple of small dents on the side and a small area of paint missing I received a further discount). When I got it home I found two more dents on the top of the fridge.
While looking for the model and serial number on the fridge I found the manufacturing date; it was built in August of 2008. I went back to the store with this information and asked for a further discount. They stated there was nothing more they could do - they had given me the best price possible. How can they consciously sell an OLD product represented as NEW floor model that has been discounted without conveying this information to the customer?
I have been a Sears customer for years; purchased all our major appliances and replacements as well as home and garden products. Another family of customers gone.
All pricing aside, this is more about being deceived. What a scam!!!
