My partner and I were shopping earlier today. She was visiting $2 type shop and I was buying some shirts 10 stores away. She didn't buy anything from this store and when me outside shirt shop, $2 shop staff came running and demanded to check the bags.
She happily assisted and obviously nothing was found, however I wasn't happy with the experience. My partner also felt quite embarrassed as lot of people walking past stared at us as if we were theives. No apology was offered by staff.
I completely understand the stores need to check bag upon exit, however does it apply if the customer is about 30 to 40 meters away?
Where does the store authority stop?
