I made a jewelry purchase two days ago. All items purchased were "all sales final". I actually paid in full for 3 items. I took those items home with me. The other items are "on layaway" with the jewelry store. I made a 25% layaway payment. The remaining balance is due in three monthly installments beginning next month. Is there a law, such as the 3-day contract law, that will allow me to return some or all the items I purchased and put on layaway?
State/Country relating to question: United States
Nothing. My stomach is tied in a knot. This was an impulse purchase. I did not tell my spouse. The total purchase is over $10k and I don't even have a job. Buyer's remorse?
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.I am sorry to have to bear bad news.There is not such a law that will help you.There is a "3 day contract law", but that will not apply to your circumstances. That law is geared towards door to door sales, sales of time share property and gym club memberships. It will not apply to retail sales.Again, sorry to have to bear bad news
Does the answer also relate to the items I put on layaway?
It does...but you will want to look very closely at the layaway contract. You will have signed a contract to enter into this layaway. Read what it says if you breach the contract. It may be you are entitled to a portion of your money back
