- Southwest Mich., MI
Please cut the nonsense
I was at Kmart on 200 Capital Avenue Southwest in Battle Creek, MI today. I was there there and picked up some new kicks from Athletech, a CD with some sultry R&B music on it, and then two wines and a BUD. As I proceeded to checkout, the cashier asked for my I.D. for the alcohol, she tried typing putting it in to the computer but it said “Age Restricted”. I am legal drinking age with valid non-expired-up-to-date vertical Michigan I.D. They said something about it being to close to my birthday (I turned 21 yesterday). They used some confusing language to describe the sit. and asked me what time I was born and I said “11pm”. I’m giving this Kmart a second chance but they better change or update something. This is ridiculous! Kmart needs to stop turning down valid identification for of-age people. I’m very disappointed, and although there’s no law telling me they have to sell me alcohol- it is still absolutely unacceptable in terms of customer service that they don’t. I know Kmart has old computer systems and that it would not take my card because of that. Bad customer service.
