A bookstore owner based in Chicago said a customer returned $800 worth of books after using them to decorate their home for the holidays.
Rebecca George, co-owner of Volumes Bookcafe in Chicago, said in a tweet that a customer who had purchased a large order of books before the holidays ended up returning them afterward.
"Turns out one of our biggest sales last month was for the person to stage their home for the holidays and now they want to return them all. Please don't do this to a small business, people. That one sale was a third of our rent," George said on Twitter.
