Exchange unwraps holiday gift exchange
policy, extended hassle-free returns
|FORT MCCOY (Army and Air Force Exchange Service) —
Recent industry statistics show that 3 to 4 percent of all retail sales
are returned for refund or exchange.
To alleviate the worry about what can be returned and when, the Army &
Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) is giving the gift of extended
hassle-free returns for the holidays.
For items purchased between Nov. 1-Dec. 24, Fort McCoy shoppers can
return or exchange those items through Jan. 31, 2012.
If a shopper requests a refund with a sales receipt, a cash refund will
be made if the original purchase was made in cash.
If the original purchase was made by credit card, the refund can be
credited to the customer’s same credit card. If a customer requests a
refund without a sales receipt, the refund amount is loaded onto an
Exchange Merchandise Card.
“The Fort McCoy Exchange’s return policy is second to none,” said the
Exchange’s Store Manager, Neal Smart. “With our amended plan during the
holiday season, we have the processes to ensure it’s the right color,
look or fit.”
In addition to returns on locally purchased items, shoppers can return
Exchange catalog or Internet orders to the Fort McCoy Exchange for a
full refund on the product. If the return is due to an error on the
Exchange’s part, shoppers will be reimbursed the standard shipping
charges in full, Smart said.
“We take our commitment to serving those who serve very seriously,” said
Smart. “Exchange shoppers give the best gifts because we ensure that
Soldiers get exactly what they want every time.”
