What is B Stock?
B-Stock items are returns from stores such as Bestbuy, and Gibbys to the manufacturer companies like Denon, Marantz, Pioneer and Polk where they originally came from. The manufacturing companies will thoroughly check over each return before deeming it B-Stock. Once the item is considered B Stock the manufacturers will sell them back at deep discounted prices and Gibbys Electronic Supermarket passes the savings along to customers. Generally these models come with a 1 year warranty unless otherwise noted. B-Stock products also come with a 30 day over the counter exchange. If there is any manufacturers defect in the first thirty days Gibbys will exchange the unit for another unit. After 30 days the manufacturer’s guarantee is in effect.
BStock items can be called many names such as: Refurbished, Refurb, Recertified, Returned. Don’t make the mistake thinking that Open box is the same.
B-Stock vs Open Box
Open Box items are usually carton damage or store demos – they are not “used” or considered to be post-consumer goods. In some cases, you may see Open Box at the end of a product title. If you see this we will also have made it clear in the products bullet point area and in the products description about the item. These items are 100% perfect (Item will state clearly if otherwise) and brand new. However some items may have been opened for inspection to make sure all the pieces are included and that the packaging is intact; however unlike refurbished items, they generally do not come in a retail packaging. BStock is the absolute best way to save money. Products that are B Stock will have a huge discount that you’ll never see with A stock products.
