I get there and ask to see a AM/FM CD player from a stack of used car stereos... I ask him how much for that Sony deck?" and he says $80.00 and I told him that I did not have that much money so I started to leave and he goes "Well, Have much do you have?" and I said $40.00 then he goes "Do you have $50.00" and I thought what is $10.00 more?
I gave him $50.00 for this Aiwa AM/FM CD stereo and with a screwdriver I take apart my dash and remove my stock stereo (I have experience with installation of car stereos from prior purchases) I wire the stereo up and turn the key on and "nothing lights up" on the Aiwa unit...I went back up to him and it was like he never seen me in his life..He says "give me a min" as he was spinning another customers stereo control knob..I walk back up in the store and he meets me in there and I tell him that the stereo has no life in it..He says try another one..Try the Audio Acoustics (NOT WORTH $50.00 NEW!!) CD stereo so I tried it and same problem...JUNK!! I ask him for my money back? He said nope..So I said why not? He said "read the fine print on receipt" This was like 15-20 min after I bought the stereo and now "NO REFUND" Thank God I did not drive off and return later with a complaint because most likely he would of said something like I broke or blown out the all ready broken junk used stereo...He offered me store credit for $50.00 and I said "I can't have my money back"? Take in mind that he had no other used car stereo that was $50.00..The others were $60.00 and $80.00..
I ended up with these 6.5" Rockwood USA speakers (Brand New) for the $50.00 store credit because I felt that after I left and came back at a later date that my store credit would not be honered.. These 6.5" speakers are not worth $50.00.. Try $30.00 brand new, at the most.. Be careful with this place.. you may end up with a written on original receipt of "store credit" instead of a cash refund after your money changes hands
