Fraud Unit: Liquidation Sales

Posted: Updated:

The Better Business Bureau is offering warnings about Liquidation Sales.

- Shop around. Sometimes stores will actually mark up certain prices during liquidations sales. Make sure you really are getting a deal.
- The City of Tucson requires a permit to have a liquidation sale. Ask to see this permit, so you know the store is actually going out of business.
- Often times a store my advertise for a certain branded product, only to switch it out with a lower quality, off-brand at the time the sale is about to be made.
- Make sure you understand warranties that come with the products you buy, and always ask if the store has a refund policy. Get the refund policy in writing, if possible.
