Colors


We have done our best to display as accurately as possible the colors of the products shown on this App. However, because the colors you see will depend on your device, we cannot guarantee that your device’s display of any color will be accurate.


Product Information


We make all reasonable efforts to provide information on this App that is accurate and complete; however, pricing and typographical errors may occur or information may be out of date. There may be information, including information about products, their availability, or their prices that may be inaccurate or incomplete. We reserve the right to correct any such information without prior notice. We regret any inconvenience to you.

Any "Compare at Price" reflects our evaluation of the regular, retail selling price of that or a comparable item in finer catalogs or specialty or department stores, based on our buying staff’s knowledge of what our customers may expect to pay in competitive national markets. It represents our effort to provide a meaningful comparison so that its customers are confident that what they are purchasing from us is, indeed, real value.
