Question:

We recently ordered cups from a store for a party and they did not arrive on time . The store graciously offered to lend us new different glasses for the party which THEY toviled and we were going to return them ( as the store told us they have what to do with it ) however my wife liked them and we are now keeping them .
Do they need to be re toviled ?

Answer:

It depends on why the store toveled it. If they toveled it because they want to provide a service to their customers, that is skeptical if it works, and you should tovel them again without a bracha. However, if they toveled it because they use it for eating (as you wrote they have what to do with it), then it is a Jew that toveled it for his personal use and it wouldn’t need tevilah.

Best wishes
