What is the name of your state? CA
A friend of mine went on an alcohol run at Rite Aid and ended up with some extra booze he wanted to return; however, the employees at Rite Aid insisted it was against either state or federal law to accept the item for return.
I spent forever googling the laws in CA and at the Federal level and did not come up with anything. Did they just pull this rule out of their butts?
Additionally if it matters, this was not at all indicated in the store's return policy.
