Verizon Store gave me open box iphone 13

I ordered iphone13 and pickup from store same day.  They gave me Iphone 13 and box were open. They told me box is open, after they process everything.  I asked him to replace and gave un-open iphone. He did not. He told me I should return/exchange using website.  Return/exchange is costing $50.  Did you experience something similar ?   How do I know phone is used, refurbished or brand new ?   

Please advise.

Congrats on your new phone. Making sure you are aware of the quality of your device is important. We do not sell open-boxed devices at our Corporate store locations. Which store location did you visit https://vz.to/2m0xCTh

-This is the correct store- Previously I copy/paste wrong store. Please advise, How can I verify phone is brand new. It is only 3 days, I can return and cancel the service but I prefer to verify first if possible.  I look at the last reset date  after I activate phone and it was Jun 2022.   I wou

That is odd, devices that are shipped to stores are not the store's inventory.  The device should have been sealed.  If I may ask, did you ask the store to notate on your account that the device's package was opened,so when doing the return, you are not charged for opening the package?
