Lumber Liqiudators has a horrid reputation.
To bad, 0 excuse for it.
So good luck with tryong to go through them.
The stupid comment on it may be termite damage without seeing it in person should be your first clue as to what's going to follow.
Before I decided on a hardwood flooring source, I did a lot of research on boards such as this. It was a ubiquitous opinion that people should be wary of Lumber Liquidators, mainly because they do not stand behind their products.
Not that there weren't stories of great products and service from them. I sincerely hope that your story ends well. But I had read enough to get me looking elsewhere, and I am happy that I did.
When you said "bubbles" I thought, well, bubbles. That looks like a wholesale failure of the finish. Since it is spread out, but mostly (or solely) in one room it could be just one bad box.
