Dicks Sporting Goods - Discrimination of Senior Citizen
Oct. 18 2008 5:15 P.M.
I went to the mall to shop at Dicks with the gift card I had received for my birthday. I went to the gun department where two clerks or salesman. One was a young person and the other was an older salesman.They were talking and had no other customers when I walked up and asked for help.
The younger clerk didn't know much about the guns I was asking about so he asked the older clerk if he knew anything about the guns. He said yes and proceeded to talk to me when some younger customers came up and barged in asking their questions.
The older salesman just ignored me and started talking to these other younger customers. The younger clerk also started talking with the other customers totally ignoring me. I had to walk away because I could see they wanted to talk to these other younger customers.
I feel I was discriminated against. No I know I was discriminated by Dicks employees.
I will never go into another Dicks Sporting Goods Store and will tell everyone I know not to purchase anything at Dicks Sporting Goods Store
I am thinking about asking my attorney about this situation.
