Today after while leaving Supabarn I was approached by a security guard who asked to look in my bag. I agreed and opened the bag. He spotted a packet of seeds that I had bought from another store and tried to take them. I withdrew my bag and asked him if he was sure he was allowed to touch my things. I then showed him the relevant receipt and he was satisfied. While I was walking away he told me that he was allowed to touch “merchandise”.
I’m pretty sure that he doesn’t have any right to touch anything in my bag, and I have no obligation so submit to the search.
Can anyone help clear this up for me?
