Vons Grocery Store Shame Bullying Customers at Checkout for Donations Glendale California
*General Comment: If...
Vons stores are in the habit of asking repeadetly for small donations at the checkout and sometimes rounding up the total amount of grocery charge for donations to charities which the clerk at the checkout does not even know about.
The solicitation is done out loud, so every one in line can hear in order to shame bully the customer into accepting it.
It is a very bold, aggressive way of extortion for a cause which may not even exist, since it is not publicly displayed in the store nor in their advertising materials and when asked, the clerk does not even know exactly who the recipient of the donation is.
At the minimum, Vons stores should be investigated about the practice and if it is legitimate they should clearly display in the stores who are the recipients of the donations and make the solicitation in a more civilized manner.
