CVS Pharmacy / almost arrested!
I entered the CVS pharmacy on 500 Grand Street in Manhattan N.Y. and said good morning to the manager and the employee at around 8:40 this morning (3/10/08). I went to pick up some baby wipes for my 3yr. old daughter for school. They had a display for an 80 count of wipes that read WOW $2.99 so I checked them out. I then seen another pack for $7.99 that had 232 counts of wipes so I asked the pharmacist if she had a pen and she said that she didn't and I should check up front. After I received the pen from the employee, I decided to compare the two to see which was the better value and if I should get 2 or 3 packs of the 80pck. As I was standing there, this man came up to me (he wasn't wearing a name tag or badge - the same person I said good morning to) and told me that I could not write down the price for each item, he then proceeded to tell me that I was not supposed to be writing the bar code for the items - which I wasn't. After I explained to him what I was doing he still insisted that I better stop. He came back again and then after I told him that I didn't know what his problem was, he called the police. There were some items already on the floor and then he blamed them on me. I walked up to the counter and asked the young lady for the store # and he yelled at her not to give me anything. After the police came and seen how ridiculous the call was they said that he was wrong and that I could frequent the store later on that day or the next day but I had to leave the store because the manager didn't want me there. I would like to know where it is written that a consumer cannot compare prices in order to make a sound purchase. I feel that because I am a black man being singled out and stereo typed and yes, even by another black man, that this is insane. That was discrimination at its best. The officers even gave me his name "Tony Johnson".
I am making this complaint because of the harassment and the stalking by Tony Johnson as well as the blatant violation of my rights as a consumer to tell me that I don't have a right in this here time in America to shop and compare prices as I please. I had to take my business elsewhere and walk 2 or 3 long blocks just to buy some baby wipes and I also found them for less. Thank You Tony Johnson for that Humiliating experience!!!
