Default I bought Legos for cheap, but I have problems with some

So I find this new store. There are 3 of them in my city, but 1 is 35 miles away from me, the other two are like 24 miles from me.

This new store has a chicken as a mascot. Misspelling it, it's "Dyrt Sheep". I think most of the items are salvage or just older models. There are a lot of Target and Wallyland furniture that you have to assemble. Items are 40-90% off. I've found a lot of Lego sets that are a year or more older. A lot of Lego Movie 2 sets. I found a lot of Harry Potter, Ninjago, Friends, and Star Wars sets, like Ahch To island, Elite Praetorian Guard set, Obi-Wan on the Death Star set. I found this place in March so I was going weekly before the quarantine (and I went recently on a sunday since my bf was practicing with his band). Now I've been getting sets for 40 to 60 % off. Sometimes I find the boxes open. I found the Architecture London set open, but looking at it I figured it was all there. It was 50% off, so I risked it and it did have everything.

I found the Harry Potter Hungarian Horntail set which was opened and taped but wasn't really closed. I decided to get it (50% off), and it was missing one piece and someone had stuffed the set from Star Wars Elite Praetorian Guard pack in it. I figured the night before or before opening when the staff just cleaned up and just stuffed things in boxes willy nilly. I found the Obi-Wan Death Star set that day. Recently I decided to open it off and when I first saw it I thought it was never opened. But I see it had been closed by clear box tape. There was an instruction book from another small Star Wars set. I look at the two packages inside and wonder why there are 2 pink legos when the set didn't have any pink. maybe it was a hidden piece. Sometimes you get a color that will be covered over by other bricks.

Nope. It wasn't even a Lego set it was a knock off set. The store doesn't do returns, since the merchandise there are salvage, so you are stuck with what you get.

So the short of it is I was happy to find a place I would find Legos for cheap, but then find open boxes, and Lego sets already assembled and finally bought a box that didn't appear open but had the wrong set in it. Damn.
Time! Time! Time is what turns kittens into cats.

Don't teach me a lesson; all I learn is that you are an asshole.

I wish porn had subtitles.

I too am an AFoL (Adult Fan of Lego). It is a treat to find older sets, especially at reduced prices. One thing you can do when you get a set that is missing a piece of two is go to the Lego web site, click on the customer service link. They have a place where you can request missing pieces. But please don't abuse the privilege. You can use the same link to buy some pieces that are otherwise unavailable.

Have you ever been to a BrickFair convention?
