It wasn't the store manager? LOL You should be just fine AND since you weren't officially served a ban notice of anykind, it's technically not "official" (I would think) that you are banned so if you recklessly went back for whatever reason, the police would show up at their request and serve you with a warning like I got and will be considered your Official warning and if you returned and were caught ANOTHER time then that would be considered Criminal Trespass. I wouldn't go back to any of that store in the area or that half of the state for a cpl years at least. I feel your pain here though.... I just got reckless and was banned from Hobby Lobby. They didn't have me on camera though I guess because even though police showed up, they only missed a warning ticket....I had JUST got there and knew something was up so I was empty handed headed out then boom. Sucks. It was the store manager who banned me with the help of LP like they had just literally been waiting to see me walk through the doors. Love the store but something seriously wrong with upper management like inbred type shit idk lol.

Depending on your state, if they have evidence of you "conceleaing" (dumping shouldn't matter) then I think they have up to a year to prosecute but this is provided they have all your info like the had mine. Apparently all the stores (4) had been watching me for a while and no evidence....I was periodically clearancing a non obvious item at a realistic clearance price here and there and they started to check up on it but overall I think they saw me there SO much (each store about once a week) that they just started watching me which I noticed that too and voided those stores. Anyway it sucks cause other than the staff, HL has a lot for people into that stuff ie me. I'm not able to put what I got from them specifically but I'll say this, prior to banning, within a 4 month period, I cleared everything I realistically could that I wanted as well as shit I didn't, and even ended up stuck with doubles on a lot of it! Greed and lack of self discipline = no bueno. Who becomes that big and doesn't use cameras except on their emplyess? Do they really believe JC is gonna serve justice for them? Hope JC is gettin paid to do their work on that. Have to say though.. Thanks HL!! Don't you worry though now, I already know Ol' JC is gonna get me...just hopefully not before I get across the border and visit three locations there lol Maybe I will maintain these since the drive is almost 2 hrs out and it's easy enough to do only once a month. #Thuglifecraftin

This! I knew the employees had some suspicion but only one maybe two employee actually cared..I just avoided those ones and didn't lift if they were around..sometimes they made it super difficult which was such a piss off!!

Also, Im 100% certain this LP was sent there just to locate and hopefully put an end to the problem..I had certain days of the week I went and I showed too much of a pattern..I saw some signs certain people (management) were getting susp of me in all 3 stores..I ignored those signs too busy chasing the rush I was craving

And the LP issued my ban not the management, but to be honest from the reading Ive done thought LP was allowed to issue a verbal ban?

I would assume they can just to be safe. Your situation sounds exactly the same....management at ea store showing sign of suspicion and then the LP chick I had never seen before ...now makes sense how quickly their suspicion grew! I bet she was called in to end the problem as well. Well damn. Now we know right ? Maybe we should thank Ol' JC we got off without a record! :D
