There are many misconceptions about consumer’s rights and how they are encoded in Georgia Law. AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio is continuing our series on consumer’s rights and what you can expect if you have purchased an item and wish to return it to a place of business. The Georgia Governor’s Office of Consumer Affairs says that a common myth is that a business must give a refund if a customer requests it. However, Georgia does not have any law that requires a business to provide a refund or accept returns. A business may set its own return policy and may offer consumers cash, in-store credit, exchanges or no adjustment at all. Many stores also set time limits during which they accept returns. While not required to post their policies, businesses must honor any posted refund or return policy. AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio will have more information on your rights and common misconceptions about consumer’s rights in upcoming newscasts.
