Stealing has been becoming a bigger problem since the struggle with the economy.
However, you should feel welcome in a store not offended.
I certainly feel as if I am not welcome into a certain store due to the fact every time I walk in, I am followed. My whole shopping experience in that store I feel like a criminal and I know that I am not. It's humiliating and it makes me angry to think that a person in their position would think such a thing without getting to know a person. This person is every unprofessional and needs to talk to their boss or the person who is in charge. They should get a camera instead of following people around. Thank you.
