Just venting a little, but please let me know if I'm being unreasonable... I went home for my bridal shower recently. Most of the guests were really considerate - they knew I'd be flying home, and brought small, lightweight gifts, cash or gift cards. However, I did receive several sets of dishes and lead crystal items. I packed as much as I could, and then took the remaining items back to Macys so that I could re-buy them at home instead of lugging them across the country or paying shipping. Apparently, their policy is that gift registry returns have to be refunded by store credit, even though all but 1 or 2 items had been paid for in CASH, and had the gift receipts and sale confirmation bar codes. All of the items were brand new, and the boxes had not been opened. I was so frustrated! Normal returns for items paid for in cash would have been refunded in cash. But since they were registry items, that all changed. So now I have all these gift cards and not much left on the registry, while my other registry at a different store has hardly been touched! I could have used the $$$ for the expensive wine glasses we wanted in the other store, etc. I would have liked to tell the SA where to shove her registry, but I figured that wouldn't get me anywhere, so I was nice. Nordstrom really needs a housewares department.
