He's probably just saying that they are adding your facial biometric data to their own internal database (possibly shared with totally different companies, almost certainly shared between their own stores)

""see that camera? facial recognition. If you come back in here I'll call PD immediately" He is telling you that if you come back, you'll be considered to be trespassing, and they will be able to know it's you because the facial id tech. I don't think he is saying that facial ID lead to your actual apprehension, probably just him watching the CCTV.

Trespassing at all of the chain's stores or just the one I attempted to lift at? He never specifically said anything about other stores, he just said "come back in here and I'll call the police"

Here in America it usually applies to the entire chain in almost all cases.

Of course you are by far most likely to actually be stopped on those grounds at the specific location you got caught at though. I have 3 bans from nearby chain stores and I visit all of them on occasion, just very carefully. It's typically best to give it some time to cool down.

usually its considered trespassing at all stores, but they usually have to catch you and ban you.

what do you mean catch? Can you define catch? Do they have to get my ID and make it official with paper?
