Store FAQ's

Answer: 6 Categories:

  • Computers/IT Equipment
  • Electronics
  • FREE Office Supplies
  • Furniture
  • Lab Instruments
  • Manufacturing Equipment

Answer: All transactions adhere to SSE's Terms & Conditions. Items are available As Is and Where Is. No Refunds - unless item is electronic and broken beyond repair.

Answer: In a perfect world, everything would be free...but there are costs to support our efforts. A small fee is charged for items like furniture, lab equipment, computers, etc. This cost represents a very small percentage of the actual value of the item. Office supplies are FREE to students, teachers and nonprofit staff.

Answer: The Member is responsible to arrange for transportation of items acquired from the Store Exchange. Please see Transportation.
