Liquor Store Complaint - Thrown Out of the Store Over dusty cola bottles
TORONTO, OHIO -- I was returning my bottles at my local liquor store when I dealt with a young employee who refused to take my bottles back for a deposit as they were, "dirty". I explained to him that if I bought the bottles and paid the deposit I should be honored by receiving that deposit back when returning them. Because I challenged his authority he felt that I no longer needed to be in the store.
He came around the counter, grabbed my arm and aggressively forced me out of the store. My wife came into the store to ask about what had happened and the man yelled "I'm the nephew of the owner!"
My wife and I are shaken up by this incident. I'm in my late 60's and the boy looked like he was about in his teens.
We filed a police report.
Do store employees have the right to physically remove a customer outside a store? This has never happened to me and I need to be enlightened.
