I am told I have to write a notarized letter stating this review is incorrect to stop the bullying and immature comments. Shame on pissedconsumer for your tactics and allowing big companies to respond for a fee. I have already spoken to the proper government agencies about this issue and will be replying via them.

Every time I go to this Walmart Gresham road Store # 3709 I normally have my bags checked even though no one else does. I have witnesses who can attest that I am normally the only person who is stopped.
This hasn't happened in a couple of months until today - and now Ive realized its the same person who stops me. In fact no one has been checking bags the last two months - I shop there once a week. NO ONE was getting stopped for receipt checks as I was leaving and when I was walking in. As I am almost out the door, approaching the sliding glass doors, the same woman that stops me pops out from behind a security shroud and says ma'am I have to check your receipt.
I cant find the receipt since I shoved it in the depths of my purse. She stands in front of my cart not allowing me to leave, meanwhile about 4-5 different customers with bags and carts are let through with unchecked receipts. She has me standing in the middle of the area people forced to walk around me, at this time I started getting embarrassed. I asked her why aren't you checking their items and I received no reply.
She states I am not allowed to leave I must go to the register and get the receipt. When I get to the register the cashier says I can't help you she signed a credit card receipt, I don't know what to do. Another person shows up to the register and the 3 of them start gossiping and ignoring me. I finally find the receipt, and at this point she does not even look in my cart, she takes the receipt and highlights the date on it.
I walk away and she stands at the register still talking while there is a steady flow of people walking out the door. All I had in my cart was two rubbermaid clear container items, a folding table, and one small bag with a can of soda and wax melts in it. (none of this was checked).
I would also like to mention when I went to pick out the containers there were beer caps from bottles in the containers, like someone was drinking and threw them in there. I was so upset I took this issue to social media and have been contacted by a lawyer and tv station due to this highly illegal situation.
