My DH just started a new job at a big retailer. He spends a huge amount of time on his shifts cleaning up after the customers. Those who take apart boxes and don't put them back together. Those who leave unwanted items in odd places. He said he watched one couple go through the drapes isle and open a box for every colour to see if they were the right size (even though it is marked on the box) and then just leave them. They opened about 12 boxes and then took a fresh one to actually purchase. He had to go and put the isle back together after them. Within an hour it was trashed again.
So, is it acceptable to open boxes in a store and just leave the merchandise unpacked on the shelf? Is it acceptable to do that and then take an unopened box to purchase? Does it matter that it is a big retailer like walmart, zellers or target? Is it just part of the employees job in these store to clean up after the customers?
