I bought three market unbrellas for $40 each last week. The first day I put them up around my pool, two of the umbrellas broke.
I still have the original packaging which shows Big Lots' price tag but the store manager will not refund my $120 because I don't have the receipt. He says he will only give me store credit. I've shopped at Big Lots for years and doubt I will ever spend another $120 in that store again.
I can't afford to lose that $120 and I still need umbrellas that work. I am prone to skin cancer and can't enjoy my pool without some shade.
