There was no contract. They offered something for sale and then backed out. They provided a full refund. DSG broke no laws or contracts. Where DSG should lose is in the court of public opinion. When (and if) customers take their money to a competitor, they will lose big.OK. Not a lawyer here, but couldn't they be sued for breach of contract? It's not like the product was unavailable. They just decided to stop carrying it. I think that's a big difference.
Yeah I agree with you on most points although they did occasionally have some great deals on guns at very competive prices and some fishing tackle deals that I really look forward to cashing in on. Overall they have been a place I have often browsed but rarely bought from. I will be buying a lot less if any at all in the near future. Its not like they had all that much to offer anyways so its no big loss to me.I thought DSG sucked before they pulled this bone headed stunt.
I still think they suck.
I have only rarely bought a fire arm on line or had to order one I did not pick up or at least buy that day and have a 3 day wait to take it home. How ever Any time I have ordered one I paid for it at that time. Simple offer expediences that is a contract. To make a contact you must have a legal right o make one, you must have an offer and an expedience.A lawyer explained it on TV today that there was an offer of a sale, but that no guarantee is made in those circumstances. She basically argued that either party can walk away before the transaction is complete.
I disagree. You fill out a lot of paperwork to purchase a rifle at Dick's Sporting Goods. By completing the paperwork, the background check, and handing over money, I believe there is at the very least an implied contract that Dick's must honor. And at best there is a real and tangible contract they must honor.
