Unboxed Deals refer to returned and shop soiled products that are offered for sale at greatly discounted prices.
Unboxed products could show signs of slight use, minor cosmetic imperfections or be missing the original packaging. Where the original packaging is missing or damaged Takealot may reseal or replace the original packaging altogether to better protect the item.
