we purchased a wood burning stove on 10th of jan 15 then we found it was not suitable and the shop if we could return it totally unused on the 14 of jan 15 the answer was no once bought no return I do not think this is correct under the sale of goods act
Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will try to help with this.
I am sorry but that is absolutely right.
The Sale of Goods Act covers faulty goods. It does not cover goods that are just unwanted.
If you buy in store then you are locked in immediately and unless the goods are fault there is no right to return them unless you agree one under the contract.
Many stores will offer a no quibble refund but that is more than they have to do in law.
I am sorry but I can only give you truthful information.
Can I clarify anything for you?

I bought the flue system on line and there policy is full refund within 14 days

The issue is not the policy.
The issue is what they offered you within the contract.
If this was entirely online in that you never visited the store at all then the distance selling regulations would allow you to return but only if this was not made to your specification at all.

they were just of the shelf parts

I am not sure what you mean?

standard pieces I put togeater

If you mean it was a flat pack purchase then that would make no difference.
If the entire purchase was online then the DSR applies.
If not then you are locked in I'm afraid.
