Dick's Sporting Goods Refuses to Honor Paid-For Rifle Orders

FLOWER MOUND (CBS 11 NEWS) - It was a deal Russell Kellner of Flower Mound says was too good to pass up. “It was a heck of a deal.” Last month, on Black Friday, he says he and his wife bought three Troy Defense Carbine Semi-Automatic Rifles from Dick’s Sporting Goods. Kellner says the store advertised them for $799 each, a $300 dollar discount. They got two of them, then received this letter from Dick’s on Christmas Eve, telling customers, it’s not fulfilling any more orders. Kellner says, “It ain’t a good deal when you don’t get it. So I’m not happy at all about it.” Dick’s is telling customers it will give them a full refund. It also sent Kellner a $100 gift card for the inconvenience. A week before Christmas, Dick’s announced it was suspending sales of modern sporting rifles in all stores, out of respect for the victims of the Connecticut massacre. But Kellner says Dick’s shouldn’t have changed policies until after filling orders. “Do what you said. Do what you advertised. Make good on it.”
