Store Policies

All of these are subject to change and may vary from store to store.  They are based on Arizona stores.  Please check with the stores you shop at most often, since some policies vary from store to store.

Below each store are just the highlights.  There are many more specific details in each policy.  I suggest printing out policies that are available and keeping them in your coupon holder — just in case!
