Dollar General / unethical and unrealistic behaviour by store employee/manager
On January 1, 2019 at approximately 4:10 pm my daughter and I entered our local Dollar General Store in Red Oak, Texas as has happened numerous times in the 9 years we have live in our town. On this day, we noticed a new employee/manager. As my daughter and I shopped, the manager and another employee began following us around and making comments i.e., "the police are coming, you better put that stuff up or pay for it" and they continued to walk by us looking down the front of our clothing and staring at us as we shopped. We have no idea what prompted this strange behavior by these two representative of the Dollar General Store. As we continued to shop, the police walk in and ask us to move to the front corner of the store, asking for our identifications and searching us. We still have no idea what they were looking for. After being dismissed we are still in awe of this situation. I personally have NEVER been so embarrassed and felt so humiliated in my entire life. We received no apology or any type of answer as to why this conduct took place. The items I was going to purchase, I left at the store and just came home.
There was no reason whatsoever for the manager/employee to conduct themselves in such a manner, especially without any explanation.
On behalf of myself and my daughter we would like a formal apology by the manager and employee for their actions. We are requesting the same from the police department as we still are not given any reason nor were we offered an apology.
At any rate, I personally will never shop at this particular Dollar General ever again, if I even ever enter a Dollar General Store due solely to this managers behavior. There are too many choices for consumers to shop without being treated like a common criminal.
