Check battery cable connections at battery for corrosion and tightness
Check ground connection to body from battery for corrosion and tightness
Check V at starter solenoid at start, and batt connection at starter.

Put a sturdy piece of pipe up against the starter and whack it a few times (don't crack the housing). Then crank.
---if it starts, bendix is hanging up. Return
---if it doesn't start and you have all your other bases covered, return

They will bench test it for you.

What brand?
Where purchased?

My crystal ball says Autozone

Close,advance. I checked the battery cables and found the one going to the fuse box had cracks in the wire covering. Replaced all the cables and it now starts. Thanks for all the help.
