Returning an Item to a Retail Location

We work very hard at providing our customers with the absolute lowest prices, and that includes saving on the expense of sales tax in every state we ship to except New York and Florida. Because of this, we are unable to offer you the option of returning merchandise to our retail locations. All purchases from SamAsh.com must be returned to SamAsh.com
