Went into the local retail store where I live and wanted to purchase a handheld scanner for a Christmas present.They were out of them and would have to request them from another store.
When the item came in I picked it up got it home open it up to "check it out" I noticed that there was a silver B on the bottom and the screen was scratched up. I called the retail store, spoke to the Manager (who sold me the scanner) explained the situation and he was unfazed by the fact that they sold me a used scanner for the new scanner cost. Didn't have any in the store (of course) and said "maybe" he could get some in before Christmas. I voiced my disgust in their selling practices.
I will be returning my purchase and telling everyone I know not to shop at Radio Shack.
