My minor child made a $23 purchase of candy sold by the pound in a mall store. The sales clerks did not assist her in making her decision, and since the candy was sold by the pound, she asumed that she had to buy a pound. She made two choices at the self-serve bins, which were then sealed in bags. The clerk advised her not to eat it all at one time, and gave her a receipt at the end of the transaction. I immediately returned to the store upon meeting her at the door and asked for a refund, which was denied since their store policy was not to accept returns on candy. Since the contract to purchase was made with a minor, was the store required to refund the money and accept the return of the unopened product?
