What Would You Do?

What would you do if you were being solicited to in a store parking lot (where soliciting is not allowed), either in person or by way of pamphlets/business cards left on your car? Would you notify the store? Would it make a difference if the item being solicited was illegal to be selling, such as homemade copies of DVDs?

  • Since my husband is a police officer, I would let him know. It wouldn't happen again.

  • I would probably report it to the store, yes. Not only does the person need to be stopped, but I'm sure the store would appreciate the heads-up if they have a no-solicitation policy.

  • I hate when this happens, but I have worked for businesses and reported these individuals, management usually didn't care unless they were annoying guests or customers.
