I bought two lithium batteries at the Newton location. It turns out that another family member picked up the same batteries and installed them before I got home. Since I have no use for style 123 lithium batteries, I went to the Hickory (Hwy 70) location. I was met by a man I presume to be the manager, he was the oldest of the two workers and was wearing a horrid wig. He told me that since I had not made the purchase at his store, he was not obligated to accept the return. Nice. So tomorrow when I drive to Newton, I will walk into Radio Shack for the last time.
