CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Every holiday season, temporary stores and kiosks pop up around the mall, offering gifts and festive decorations for eager shoppers. But their temporary nature can sometimes leave customers in the lurch.

Here are some tips to for shopping at a seasonal store.

  • Know the return policy. Ask whether the store will be open after the holidays and whether it will accept returns when the season is over.
  • Check for contact information. Make sure the store has a website with contact information in case you need to reach them later.
  • Use a credit card. Save your receipts and use a credit card. If there’s a problem with your purchase, your credit card company will help handle the dispute.
  • Check the shop’s BBB Business Review. Search for the store on to see past complaints and rating information.
Check out to look up a business, file a complaint, write a customer review, report a scam, read tips, follow us on social media, and more.
