    The retailer is not breaking any laws by doing this, so that's not the issue... but should they? How would you react if a retailer refused to sell you alcohol just because you had your kid with you?

    Please note that in this state it is perfectly legal for parents to serve their own minor children alcohol.
    This happened to me years ago, when I was in my early 20's about 10 years ago and my girlfriend was with me. I was getting alcohol and she was merely in line with me, when the clerk (at a drug store) told me he wouldn't sell to me. He didn't ask to card her. I was pissed and asked if he does the same to mothers in line with children, and he said no. That was my cue to not shop at rite aid again.

    That is the drinking age in Belgium and it is fine there, it was nice as a 16 year old to order beer in a restaurant. They even have bars in the schools (albeit after classes).

    If a retailer chooses to impose his morality (that I dont agree with) on my, I will take my business elsewhere.

    Since here big chain grocery stores can sell alcohol, I dont see it as an issue. THe parent company would have to create the edict and then have managers enforce it on every cashier.

    Good luck.

    Ha.. the only reason I know this is because I do work for a chain of liqueur stores and noticed the new signs.

    My days of heavy drinking are mostly over.

    Only if they're refusing to sell every kind of controled substance to a legal buyer if a minor is present, to include selling perscriptions.

    The policy discriminates against people with children.

    my assumption is to prevent those ineligibles from being able to identify what eligible buyers could purchase on their behalf

    could the same purpose be intended by the rules you are subject to at the store in question
