Product Condition Ratings

              

Every product we sell is described by one of these condition codes. Here is a brief explanation of what they mean and what you should expect in terms of condition. In many cases there will also be more specific details attached to the product description.
         

NEW  :       A new product that has never previously been sold, just as you would purchase from any retail store.

NEW - OLD STOCK  : A new product that has never previously been sold that may no longer be currently available. We often acquire these products from other stores that are selling off  their old inventory.

                 Our 90 day store warranty applies, except for products that are in sealed  boxes or sealed packages that have never been opened.
