Discriminatory Customer Service and Management

I was just racially profiled and had my item temporarily confiscated upon trying to exchange an item in the Houston store today. They made me wait in a corner near the checkout and said that they have to verify that it is my item and not stolen. 25 minutes later after being rudely treated even after I informed them I had to return to work from my break, I was handed my item with no type of apology or no communication at all. This was a terribly embarrassing shopping experience and I really doubt all customers are treated this way with no receipt exchanges. I believe I was being racially discriminated against for being a black male. This business will likely never receive any patronage from me in the future. This experience was disgusting.

    After your return/transaction in the store, you should have received a receipt.
