Walmart just lost what we imagine would have been a lifelong customer.
Sandy McMillin decided to take her bikini body to Eugene, Oregon's big box store to pick up some sour cream, chips and coffee creamer in 90-degree heat. And she told KVAL News that a Walmart employee approached her only several minutes into her shopping trip and gave her two options: put on a shirt or get out.
McMillin said, "I was horrified. I am embarrassed....It's wrong. If you don't like the way someone looks, don't look at them....I hadn't done anything obnoxious or outlandish."
While McMillin claims she was escorted out of the store, Walmart spokeswoman Ashley Hardie explained to the news station that the shopper was never taken outside, adding that McMillin "verbally abused" other folks at the scene.
Hardie added, "We can understand her frustration. It was not our intent to offend the customer, and we have apologized to her."
Besides, there's clearly no dress code chez Walmart. Don't these people know about this site?
