When shopping at the king soopers I've shopped in for 20 years on 104th & Washington st. Denver, Colorado I was asked to show my i.d.
when asking for a carton of cigarettes (normal & understandable). But when they asked to see my nephew's i.d. who is under 18 I was perplexed. I told them the cigarettes were for me not him, they then told me it was store policy that they were supposed to card all members of a party if anyone is buying cigarettes & if anyone in the party is underage the cigarettes could not be sold.
When I was told this I told the 4 cashiers & manager standing around that I didn't understand why the policy made sense because if I walk out of the store & give the cigarettes to my nephew I should be the one in trouble not the store. After seeing that I was getting visibly upset the manager looked at my nephew & myself as if she was deciding if we could be an exception.
She then decided to give the cashier permission to sell me the cigarettes. This policy & the way it is enforced may make me & my family choose to shop elsewhere.
