How is it that vendors have so many open box items? It seems like once
in a while someone would send something back, so there could be one,
maybe 2 of something, but often I see whole webpages for individual open
box items

Newegg has their Premier plan, which offers both free returns and no
restocking fee:
So, people use it and Newegg gets stuck with a bunch of returns that
they unload for a discount.

Anybody remember DAC? Mail order place. Wonderful catalogs. They sold
slick inexpensive electronics/appliances. Their breadmakers were really
neat, and may have been the first 'affordable' ones. The bad thing was
DAC's liberal return policy, which resulted in everybody returning their
breadmakers after the thrill wore off maybe 1 or 2 months later. They
had a local store with an open-box section -- full of breadmakers. They
eventually went belly-up, which was sad. The guy tried to start back up
a few years later, but it didn't work out.

Amazon Prime also offers free returns, but limits the returns to those
items fulfilled by Amazon:

Somewhere I read you can return Amazon stuff at Whole Foods stores,
which might or might not be more convenient than shipping it back.
