opinion

I recently, well couple days ago purchase a Protein Skimmer from an Aquarium Store.


On the Protein Skimmer, there is a label (sticker) that says "For Store use only"


Please leave your Opinion on what you think about this!!


Thank you.

If they buy it from wholesalers and its for store use only they get a bigger discount. So they probably bought it with that discount to still sell to you at same price to make more profit

But what's your question?
As long as you feel that you had paid for something worthwhile or that you had gotten a floor model discount, not sure what you are asking.

Unfortunately "store use" usually doesn't come with end user warranty.
