Manufacturers Warrantees Authorized Retailer
It has come to our attention that a few manufacturers, in an attempt to control the marketplace, are trying to limit retailers, like ourselves, from selling their products online and / or on third party websites such as Amazon and eBay. They are threatening not to honor their factory warranty if we sell on these sites and we simply do not find this right or ethical.
They do this by claiming retailers of their product are unauthorized sellers. Even though their product was purchased legitimately thru normal distribution channels. They often do this because they want exclusive rights to sell their products on these websites and / or they think retailers are selling their product too cheaply. This is an unfair way they manipulate the marketplace and control prices.
We at American Outfitter, LLC., DBA LG Outdoors, will therefore honor any manufacturer’s warranty with a replacement, repair or refund, at our discretion, in line with the original manufactures warranty should any manufacturer refuse to honor their original warranty by claiming we were not and authorized retailer. All manufactures warranties terms and conditions must be met under the original manufactures warranty for this offer to be valid.
