Do I need to cut?

Yesterday, I bought an accordion door for one of home depot stores, the door size is 80in h x30 in w, But I am having hard time installing the door, since the size is exact fit, the door bottom hinge doesn’t fit under the door, and the door won’t slide smoothly. 
Should I take it to the store and cut it about an inch from the top, which will make it perfectly fit, or should I exchange the door with smaller one? ( I dont know if home depot have a smaller size of it).
Would home depot store cut 1 inch of the door for me? 
Thank you,

Hello OmarHa and welcome to the Community.

You did not mention the brand of door you bough.  I choose the manufacture of Spectrum to guide you.  Click on  installation videos that will address your height issues.  You would cut off the bottom, not the top. Here is a LINK to all there videos.

Cutting this product is not one of the usual items the Home Depot cuts.  It would be up to a managers discretion at your local Home Depot store, to determine if they could cut this for you.  Usually they will take care of you if possible.

Thank you for your inquiry.
