Oregon woman: Wal-Mart said cover up or leave
Wednesday, July 27, 2011
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- An Oregon woman says she was told to put a shirt over her bikini top while shopping at Wal-Mart or leave the store.
Sandy McMillin told The Register-Guard she was shopping at a Eugene Wal-Mart with her sister last weekend when a store employee confronted her and claimed she may be violating health regulations.
An attorney for the 51-year-old McMillin said the experience was embarrassing but he is more concerned about the way McMillin was treated because she is disabled from injuries suffered in motorcycle crashes.
A spokeswoman for the Arkansas-based retail giant said the employee was responding to customer complaints and McMillin was not asked to leave the store.
McMillin says she'll probably still shop at Wal-Mart -- but at a different store.
