To let your kids wander a target or Walmart on their own while you shop in the store?
* I changed the title to read age
The reason I'm asking is because I was slowed to go off on my own at 8 or 9 in the store.

 I don't understand your title, but, I would NEVER let my dd wander the store alone.  Well, maybe when she is a teen, but, yea.

The same age I'd be ok with dropping them off to shop on their own. Probably not before 13 or 14.

12ish. If a kid is old enough to stay home alone, they're old enough to walk to electronics & look at video games by themselves.

I think it depends on your area. My kids are 16. They will go look at what they want, if they want. From about 11/12 I allowed them to go to the restroom with each other.
