Target Complaint - Alcoholic Beverage
EMERYVILLE, CALIFORNIA -- On/about June 23 I purchased a 12 pack of Corona premium beer. The cashier met me with "ID" and no other greeting. I am a 72 year old male and certainly of age to purchase alcoholic beverages. The cashier was demanding (rudely) to swipe my Driver's license for identification purposes. I refused and requested that a manager be called. Another employee, ostensibly a manager, did something with the cash register and I proceeded to check out. Although merchants have the obligation to ensure a buyer is of legal age, demanding ID from a person my age is ridiculous.
I also question the legality of wanting to swipe my Driver's license which contains more information than date of birth.
I have written to Target and am awaiting their reply.
