I recently purchased this laptop from a local store (not official Lenovo), and it has these stickers on it.
Is this a refurbished laptop?
Should I return it? The price was not cheap and I was paying for it like new. The serial number of the laptop (looked it up in the BIOS) and the one on the packaging are the same, please help.

"remanufactured" sounds very similar to 'refurbished" in real terms, and the description matches it. On the other hand, AFAIK Lenovo refurbished products have a "REF" suffix to their serial numbers, but your photo is shaken and not readable.
That said, the last part that says about a 90-day warranty should raise the alarm. And that alone should give you motive enough to return it at once.

The laptop comes with 2 years waranty, however not official Lenovo waranty but from the local seller. Whatever the situation is, I returned it to the store and asked for my money back, since they did not tell me the laptop was "remanufactured" or whatever wheh I was buying it.
Thanks for the reply.

I'd never trust a store's warranty. What if they go bust? This smells - bad. You did well by returning it since, in effect, they sold you something different than what you asked for.
