BBB: Consumers don’t have control returning defective online retailer products

MILWAUKEE, WI — Multiple complaints, including one from Minnesota, have been sent to the BBB after consumers had difficulty returning defective items from an online retailer.

I know for a fact that I’m not the only 26-year-old with bad posture, but there aren’t quite as many people my age who also suffer from severe and chronic back pain. In addition to things like stretch, yoga, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, and massage, I’ve tried a ton of different ergonomic chairs, quite a few back rests, seat cushions, balance balls, etc. to combat the constant stress on my back that’s caused by my slipped discs and generally terrible posture.
