Seems like a yid owns it.
Interesting. I wonder if this is due to ribbis issues.

I'm usually dam lioaf zchus, but I'm pretty sure the 7 days a person from those areas have to return for store credit is because Yom Tov is 8 days long.

It is a frum lady who owns it. It is not due to ribbis issues.

OK. Something people should keep in mind when returning to Jewish stores, though, is that it likely is a problem

The poskim talk about it.
Think about it:
You give cash to someone
They give you object for a week
You use the object
After a week you give back the object and they give you back your cash

You have them cash for a week and you got use of their object

You didn't lend them money. You bought something. Halacha recognizes being mivatel a sale.

Which renders it a halvaah according to most poskim. Have you researched the issue?
It's obviously not ribbis ketzutzah but still may be a problem

You're letting the customer try to see if they like it, no store has a return policy with the intention of allowing customers to use and return. Yes, there are customers that take advantage but the spirit of return policies is to give the average customer the benefit of the doubt.

Disclaimer: I don't know anything about this issue.

There is no Ribis at all, every Jewish store has a return policy.

And what about for the Jews in Texas or Honolulu, why isn't there a Halucha problem for them if they return? why only these 5 places?

We gotta Boycott them until they change their policy.

Its pure discrimination!!  :-[

Talking about discrimination, most Jewish stored have a "no refunds" policy (return for credit within 1-7 days with receipt).

Umm, guys, it's not a "Jewish" thing. It's a "New Yorker" thing.
