Wish I had have known it was closing because they probably would have been selling everything very cheap and I could have picked up a lot of models.
My Local Store (here near Adelaide about 400kms away to be honest) a year back closed and i managed to get in there and pick up a sweet battalion box for 100 dollars that i didn't even want, and then my dad bought me the other battalion box because he thought i was interested in orcs and goblins, so with 200 dollars worth of battalion boxes i knew were worth more than that, I took them into Adelaide games workshop and because i said they were given to me for my birthday and i didn't have the receipt the guy at the counter gave me the retail cost in store credit which was actually 300 dollars a box, so for $200 i managed to score $600 of in-store credit, cant complain with that.

...you do realize that's considered theft, right?

IN THE US? ASK ME HOW TO GET 10% OFF GAMES WORKSHOP PRODUCTS!

so.. you return products to a store where you did not even buy them, to make profit because you got them at a discount/gift, but did not need them. dishonest practice, stupid, and i'm quite sure absolutely not legal.

Indeed it was a dick move when i look back at it but we all learn from mistakes... plus not to mention my ex was the one who returned them -.- so i didnt really see or receive anything. Does not stop it from being any more wrong. Appologies.
