Kohl’s to start accepting Amazon returns

Attention, Amazon shoppers! Returning your purchases is about to become a whole lot easier, and we have a fellow retailer to thank for this.

Kohl’s announcing ealier this week that they will start accepting returns from Amazon customers for free. This service will be avaible at all Kohl’s stores beginning in July. All the shopper has to do is take their returns to a Kohl’s customer service desk. The store will package the items and ship them back to Amazon. 

Kohl’s brought Amazon into a small number of its stores about two years ago. Kohl’s believes that this expanded partnership could help attract younger shoppers who will shop in store after making their return. 

Dozens protest proposed ban on flavored e-cigarettes

Dozens of people showed up to protest a proposed ban on flavored e-cigarette products in Albany County Tuesday evening.

Some fear this will push them back towards tobacco cigarettes, while others believe it doesn’t go far enough. 

Over 60 people signed up to speak about this issue Tuesday night at the legislature meeting.

Those for it say it’ll help get flavored e-cigarettes out of the hands of kids, but many others say it helps people quit smoking.

Many outside the Albany County courthouse shared stories about how they quit smoking cigarettes by using flavored vape products.

“I used a fruit flavor to help me quit smoking.  I’m now five years smoke-free.”

This group of e-cigarette users feel under attack.  The local law would ban the sale of all flavored e-liquid products in Albany County, including mint and menthol, leaving just tobacco flavors left for sale.

“If you’re using something that tastes like your cigarette, then you’re that much closer to going and lighting up one more cigarette just because,” said Andrew Osborne from the New York Vapor Association.

In addition to making it more difficult for people to quit, 5-1 Vape owner David Le says the law would shut down his business.

“We carry about 150 flavors, and I think only about four of those flavors are tobacco flavors,” said Le, “so this would close up shop.”

“But unfortunately kids aren’t realizing what’s in these products,” said Caitlin O’Brien from the American Heart Association.

Advocates of the proposed law say it would help keep flavored vapes, specifically Juuls out of the hands of kids.

“If we can stop kids from ever starting and ever picking up this nicotine addiction, we can save lives,” said O’Brien.

“I think it’s time we take a more sensible approach to this, that isn’t going to shut down businesses, isn’t going to end people’s jobs, and isn’t going to send people back to smoking,” said Osborne.

This proposed law is still in the very early stages.  It’ll next go to committee where legislatures will make changes to the proposal.

Survey finds people are lying about their vacations

A study by Jet Cost found that people are lying about their vacations.

The study surveyed over 4,000 Americans and found that two-thirds exaggerated the details of their experience away.

The top three reasons were the weather, 34 percent, quality of accommodations, 29 percent, and the amount of sightseeing they did, 27 percent.

Other reasons included the amount of alcohol they consumed during their trip and how much money they spent.

68 percent admitted to embellishing how much they enjoyed their trip, and 52 percent said they wouldn’t admit if their vacation was a failure.

10 percent admitted to posting fake pictures online, and there are now websites that help you do so, such as Fake A Vacation.

The website takes pictures of you and your family and superimposes them on backgrounds of famous vacations spots such as the Grand Canyon, Disney Land, and the beaches of Hawaii.

Schenectady looking at proposed plastic straw ban

Schenectady joins at least a dozen cities across the country banning, limiting or considering limiting plastic straws.

The plastic straw ban to require businesses to have bio-degradable straws and only allow plastic straws for customers with disabilities.

The Plastic Pollution Coalition estimates that 500 million plastic straws are used per day. Starbucks already plans to eliminate plastic straws next year, but there are businesses in Schenectady already ahead of the curve.

Slidin’ Dirty’s owner, Tim Taney, said he goes through at least 100 straws a day. Paper straws he uses cost three-times more than plastic ones.

At Horse’s Lounge, its owner ,Christain Fritzen, is phasing out his supply of plastic straws after seeing a video of a plastic straw being removed from a turtle’s nostril.  

If the proposal passes, it will go into effect January 1.
