Take and bring

I'm reviewing the lesson about these verbs
1st question
A) James: "If you don't like this pair of shoes, bring it back and I'll change it"
B) James : "If you don't like this pair of shoes, I'll take it back to the shop for a change".
Are both correct? If so, in my opinion have different meaning.
A1) James works in a shoe shop (and now is there)
A2) James is at home and John must go to James's house to deliver the pair of shoes because James will take it to the shop
B) James will go to the shop for a change
2nd question
Could you bring me some beers from the supermarket?
Fetch can be used here or have different meaning?

Thank you

    A1 is correct: James works in the shop and says to the customer that if he/she doesn't like the shoes, they should bring them back and they will be changed.
    A2 is not correct
    B is correct: James offers to take the shoes back to the shop for a friend/family member
    Could you bring me some beers from the supermarket? This is correct and you could replace the word bring with fetch.
