The CSM then run after me as I'm walkin outside saying hey can I check your recipit and I asked why and handed it to her and kept askin why she said I'm doing what I was told to do. I said who told you to run after me and check my receipt I don't steal I work hard for mine. Then she calls loss prevention out talking about it's and argument. I wasn't I jus wanted to know why I was gettin embarrasssed when I've done nothing Wong and I shop in Walmart all the time.

Contact corporate, and tell them you don't appreciate how you've been treated. Here is the contact information:

if everything was on your receipt, why not show the receipt and feel confidant you did not steal? i feel the same way as you, and have worked hard for my money, and am confidant in showing my receipt. to me it does not matter if they 'suspect' i stole, i know the difference.

very helpful review.

Once you pay and package it's legally yours. Tell them to bite one. If they do stop you forcibly, a good ambulance chasing lawyer can get you a bundle. UNLESS it is a "club" store like Sam's or Costco and they have it in their terms and conditions or it is prominently posted on all entrances to the store that packages are subject to search before leaving the store or you have an unpackaged item.

all public retail stores have the right to set any rules they wish for shoppers.

As many of you may know...I went through this very same ordeal with Walmart. It ended ugly, with security and so forth. In the end, I was told that they have the right to ask, but I also have the right to say "No thanks" and keep on walking. That came from both the manager's mouth and the cops as well.

My future solution...I stopped giving my business to Walmart and decided to go to Target, where they don't treat you as a criminal. I walk out of their unattended doors each and every time with a sense of satisfaction.

Stores may have rules, but shoppers also have rights. I would never shop where I felt uncomfortable. I, too, walk out of Target with a sense of satisfaction.

Justice, the customer service desk at Target stores is located near the exit. Someone might be keeping an eye on the people leaving, but I have never seen anyone stopped or questioned.

J4A, I've had them ask at Target, but kept on walking.
Posted by Venice09 on 2011-08-07:
Just curious, jkt. Since there are no greeters at Target, who asked you?
Posted by jktshff1 on 2011-08-07:
mad, you are right, but they have to prominently posted. Similar to the signs banning honest people from carrying guns. Not posted, they can't do it.

security guard.

I don't think I've ever seen a security guard at Target. Maybe I better start paying better attention before I put that candy bar in my pocket. ;)

JKT, what about when a store has a sign posted, stating they reserve the right to inspect all packages and they ask for your receipt to check your package? I always thought that meant any packages your bring in with you, but it can also mean your packages you purchased and paid for from that particular store.

DebtorBasher> Simply because a store posts a sign, doesn't necessitate the right to search you. Under that line of reasoning, a store posts that they have the right to do a cavity search, then can they? Not hardly. A store can't just go all willy-nilly and expect to enforce whatever they wish. Their store policy doesn't supercede state law.

J4A...please pull up and wait for your order.

DB, the sign must be posted at all entrances. J4A it does have to be within the law.
