You did not tell me anything regarding any of your items being non-refundable. No signs in your store stated that and it is not stated on the receipt that I have in my possession. Also I didn't sign anything in your store acknowledging that this order would be not refundable and could not be canceled once placed. I understand your claim that this is high-end, top quality mechandise, but despite my medical conditions I told you about I am a single mom of 4 year old twin boys and I have to think in extremely practical terms since I am unemployed as we talked about that night.
As a business owner, I do not know how to tell you to proceed other than to call the manufacturer ASAP and halt production immediately and/or sell the bed to another customer. I have taken my cancelation up with the Bank that my check is drawn on and informed them of the situation, they are sending me paperwork to dispute the charge. After I told them about the purchase, they informed me that I will not be obligated to pay anything, and they advised me to not accept delivery or sign for ANY delivery of any items whatsoever.
I am certain that you won't have any problems at all selling that bed to anyone else who walks in your door of your store.
