Retailers Starting To Require ID To Shop In Their Stores?

I generally don’t post videos, because they take time to watch and I would prefer to read a story rather than have it spoken to me, but I made an exception here. Read the comments below the video as well.

Evidently Walmart, CVS, Target (why would you shop there anyway?) and Walgreens are implementing a policy to require your ID when you walk into the store.

Under NO circumstances will I present ID just to go in a store to shop. I will turn around and shop elsewhere, or do without, before that happens. I suggest everyone do this as well. This feels like a step toward the digital ID crap that is being implemented everywhere, and the next step is CBDC’s.

Interesting that you need an ID to shop, but not to vote.

NO. I am drawing the line. They demand we do this, and we agree. Then they push us a little harder, and we agree. We don’t even remember what it means to be free.

I WILL NOT COMPLY. Resistance is NOT futile.

If I were a shopkeeper in these days and times of rampant shoplifting and looting, I would have a doorman / security guard who would need to see ID before admitting someone. That’s just the reality of current times.
it’s an appropriate risk mitigation strategy. You aren’t going to reverse the trend of people having IDs by withdrawing your custom from shops. Frankly, I think the small shops need it more than the big stores.

That won’t have an effect on crime. What will they do turn in the shoplifter to the Soros DA? Ha.
I can emphasize with their plight, but annoying the paying customers isn’t going stop them.
If they have security guards by all means let them.guard but the don’t have to balls to stand up for their own business they have no business being in business.

These days, a large % of the so-called ‘paying customers’ buy very little. They come in to finger the goods and compare brands, then leave and go buy what they want online. I wouldn’t start up a shop in a blue city, and if I had one, I’d up stakes and move. But if neither of those were an option, I would go ‘Costco-esque’ and make my shop membership or subscription only.
The issue of showing ID to enter a private establishment is not a fight I’d be willing to participate in. The shopowner has every right to set such conditions as they choose to protect their business. My freedoms and yours stop where violating the property rights of another start. This is not a hill that I think is worth dying on.

It is worth it because it won’t end there. I’d thinkif recent events teach us anything, it should show us that it will morph into a totalitarian nightmare, beyond reasonable peoples ability to even imagine.. Gotta kill it before it multiplies.

Demanding papers will do absolutely NOTHING. So I have to present ID to go and spend my hard earned damn fake dirty paper known as cash but no one is required to present ID to do something so important as to vote. Come on folks seriously. I will NOT present ID to do Jack, they can suck it.

This is all by I found on Walmart ID when browsing the web:
“Walmart partners with ID.me to verify your identity for various Walmart Health & Wellness services, like scheduling virtual care appointments. ID.me is a trusted technology partner to federal and state agencies, healthcare organizations, financial institutions, retailers, and nonprofits. This article explains how to use ID.me with Walmart.”

Most of these stores have a 3% or less margin on sales afterbfixed cost overhead. A loss of 3% ofvtheir customer base will bankrupt them.
Do not comply. In fact send a message go to any store doing this and refuse then walk away. Do it often, once the stores report large numbers of walk aways they will stop this nonsense, except the Walmartians, they are too stupid. But thats why ok, surely the new owners will be smarter

If a store has facial recognition software, they probably already know who you are when you walk in the door if you shop there regularly. Wear a mask … pretend there is some type of made up killer virus out to get everyone. I have never seen a store refuse entrance to anyone wearing a mask. Well, maybe before that last fake virus they did.

Banks used to refuse entry to masked customers. Haven.t been to a walk in one since way before the Wuflu jamup.

I ponder how many of the readers and posters here have a Driver’s License? You know the one with a picture on it, in a nationwide database?

Maybe a Retired Military ID? Credit card for their Online buys from Amazon? And so on.

Like they don’t have ID on you? Please. Only cash only folks can even start talking like that. AND they are IGNORING the cameras all around them.

I’ve shopped at BJ’s for decades; the subscription system keeps down the common thieves.

Don’t know about your Walmart, but I find Walmart’s like CVS’s, and such REFLECT the Social Mores of the area. Ours is pretty sane. Never in the past 15+ years have I seen a Black Friday mob scene, the last time an out of stater (Thanks Boston) start a nasty bit with a Walmart worker 11 locals surrounded the idiot and physically carried him out the door. We kept his knife and cellphone as trophy’s.

The local police were waiting to cuff and ship him off when we turned him over. Seems he had an outstanding warrant or three waiting.

The demographic that loots these stores during a planned raid involving dozens of perps will blow through the entrance doors and will not be showing any IDs.
This new policy is akin to attempting to revoke 2A for all law-abiding Americans whenever a ghoul shoots up a school, etc.
This is another nudge to the Left of communism.

Retailers are getting raped by shoplifters, and the law is no longer on the retailers’ side. I can understand the desire to know, at the very least, who’s about to be prowling the store, and therefore to have some degree of recourse should he intend to steal. If right and justice don’t deter him, perhaps others’ knowledge of his amorality might.
That having been said, it’s an unpleasant harbinger of even greater unpleasantries to come. But look at what we’ve already suffered! Stores disappearing from predation. Retailers putting locked Lucite barriers over their wares. Shoppers not even able to inspect the merchandise before summoning a clerk to unlock the barrier, choose an item, and carry it to the register. And of course, the multiplication of thieves who grow fat selling stolen merchandise on eBay.
If the store wants to see my ID before admitting me, I’ll gladly show it. All the alternatives appear worse. Your preferences may vary.

You don’t get it. Showing ID will not prevent any shoplifting whatsoever. The guard will not memorize the names and addresses and there is no simple way to connect a shoplifter the ID card! So you show an ID to some underpaid GenXer with one eye on his phone then what? Explain to me how you expect this to work

so Shaniqua is going to get caught stuffing 20 packs of hair straightener into her fake Louis Vuitton (or real depending on where she’s been “shopping” today) How will the guard know the difference between her and Shantal especially since Shaniqua’s picture was taken 75 pounds ago? The guard isn’t going to remember the ID he barely glanced it, So then they increment to the next step then the next and then we are all in China waving our chips in front of the scanner to go take a crap.

Will this ID requirement be enforced uniformly, or will “disenfranchised minorities” be given a pass and waved on through? I pose the question based upon the fact many don’t require a state issued ID to vote, on the basis that “it is too onerous a requirement to impose on disadvantaged minorities” or some such crap.

If they can give them a pass at the polling place, I’m sure the official law of the locality will provide similar carve outs in some fashion to the same people, and for the much same reasons. Point being, I doubt this policy has a material impact on five finger discounting continuing unabated. Are they really going to do better at trying to prosecute trespassing, than they are (not) doing at prosecuting shoplifters?

Aside from that, there are already myriad good reasons not to shop at Walmart, CVS and Target (or as I like to call it, “the red menace”), so this sudden policy change (assuming it is in effect in my AO to begin with) will not cause me an issue as I already avoid those three chains entirely, among others I try heavily not to patronize.

I will show ID to enter a store, when the laws already on the books that were intended to deal with shoplifting and theft of all kinds are properly and consistently enforced.
If retailers can’t prosecute theft, can’t accost the thief, and can’t chase the thieves, because racism, then how precisely is my showing ID going to do anything to correct these things?
If the fundamentals aren’t being looked after, then the add-ons are null & void. To hell with all this PC woke nonsense, say I!

They better put armed guards at the door because a certain demographic will not be abiding.

Only the lawful follow the rules—but I wouldn’t follow this rule anymore than I will wear a mask. Who’s going to ask for ID from 20+ masked shoplifters barging en masse past a security guard? And if this is a small step towards getting sheeple accustomed to showing ID to enter a business, well so-be-it. We walked away when businesses required us to wear a mask or show last date of the vaxx and we can do it again.

Yep, like Nancy used to tell us “Just say NO” to such methods of sheep control. Once again, the law-abiding folks get MORE controls placed upon them while the POS criminals continue with their crime sprees without concern for any consequences. Time to give the big middle finger to all of this crap and do not comply. Take your business local instead of these woke corporations that don’t like you anyway.

Inner city stores should convert to on-line order kiosks on the front with order pickers in the back. Zero loss, no product display hassles, no rude customers abusing staff, Karen’s are locked in a kiosk waiting for their order. Sounds like heaven for a retal worker and probably have lower prices.
Big plus for the customer is skipping self checkout hassles.

It’s that frog in warming to boiling water that doesn’t realize he’s being boiled to death! The powers-that-be want us to accept all these little incremental steps, then suddenly we’ll be forced to take The Mark or else! it’s all moving toward that end.
