Yes. Damark does sell reconditioned stuff, but that is always clearly
marked as such. Most of the stuff in the catalog these days is new
merchandise, not rebuilt returns. Actually, I got lucky with my old
Welbuilt bread machine. It was a reconditioned return and therefore an
earlier model. The newer 'improved' models seem to be a lot less
reliable than my old one. I have never bought anything from QVC, but my
impression from occasional pauses in channel surfing is that their
prices tend to be on a par with department stores and generally quite a
bit higher than our local discount stores. Damark tends to be in the
same price range or slightly lower than the local discount stores.
