Oregon woman Sandy McMillin: Wal-Mart said cover up or leave
(CBS/KVAL/AP) EUGENE, Ore. - An Oregon woman says she was told to put a shirt over her bikini top while shopping at Wal-Mart or leave the store.
Sandy McMillin told CBS affiliate KVAL she was shopping at a Eugene Wal-Mart with her sister last weekend when a store employee confronted her and claimed she may be violating health regulations.
"I was horrified," McMillin told reporters. "It's wrong. If you don't like the way someone looks, don't look at them."
An attorney for the 51-year-old McMillin said the experience was embarrassing but he is more concerned about the way McMillin was treated because she is disabled from injuries suffered in motorcycle crashes.
A spokeswoman for the Arkansas-based retail giant said the employee was responding to customer complaints and McMillin was not asked to leave the store.
McMillin says she'll probably still shop at Wal-Mart - but at a different store.
