Walmart refuses to sell beer to dad shopping with 15-year-old daughter
A 57-year-old man says he was humiliated when he tried to buy some beer from his local Walmart in Iowa and the clerk refused to sell it to him.
Why? Because the clerk decided to card Jim Davis’ 15-year-old daughter, who was with him on the grocery trip.
Because the teen had no ID, the employee refused to sell to Davis.
Walmart initially said the procedure is to ensure that alcoholic beverages and tobacco are not sold to minors and that they are testing point-of-sale age checks in some locations across the country, according to the Des Moines Register.
A Walmart supervisor later said that the employee was wrong to refuse the alcohol sale.
