Over the past Year,I've gotten into the habit of late night shopping in the 24 hour stores with a friend that works until midnight. I enjoy it because there are fewer people around,no long lines at the checkouts,and I can take my time and choose what I want without feeling pressured to get in and get out again.
In all of my late night shopping adventures I have never been treated as a potential shoplifter, until I went in the CVS store located at 4755 Westheimer Road, Houston,TX .
My friend had several items she needed, but all I needed was a pack of cigarettes so I suggested we go to CVS as it was closer than Walmart. We got there around 1:20 am, within minutes we were being followed, they were so worried about what we were doing that the clerk was rude to another customer because she had to show him where something was.When I asked where I could find nail polish, I was told "" it's on aisle 20, didn't you look there already?"" I didn't see it because the store was out of it, it was at that point I decided we just needed to go.
On average, I would say I visit this store 3-5 times per month, and I usually spend $21-$75 per visit. I don't know if there's been a rash of theft at that store,or not,but after the treatment I received it is unlikely I would shop at this store in the future. Also, it's doubtful that I would recommend this company after this.
Pros: close to home
Cons: rude staff
