ED Magedson – Founder
Office Depot5111 Greenville Ave Dallas, Texas United States of America
I was browsing around at this Office Depot in Dallas, TX and felt as if a couple of employees there were treating me as if I was not welcome. One employee kept walking by me while I was browsing. He walked passed me at least 3 times. Another employee who seemed to be the manager rudely asked "Can I HELP you," upon which I replied "No i'm just browsing," Thank You. Now, the reason I felt uncomfortable there is because the employee who was walking passed me seemed to be going out of his way to walk past me. He would walk from the front of the store passed where I was then across the store. At first it didn't seem weird until I was leaving the store and instead of taking the same route to the same destination he was going to, he seemed to make sure to walk past me as I exited the front of the store as if to prepare to chase me in case the anti theft alert alarm went off. This is not the first time I have felt uncomfortable in an Office Depot store, but I can guarantee it will be the last as I will never (EVER) shop there again.
P.S. I am an African American Business Owner so I did have a reason to be there. Last year in 2009 I purchased a $700 Toshiba Laptop from this exact location. So why they would seem to expect me to steal I have no idea.
