Was curious to know what you guys think about this -
Dirk was really surprised to find that on the little offlicense shops (shops that sell stuff like cigarettes, chocolate, drinks etc) in London there are nearly always notices saying something like 'NO MORE THAN 3 SCHOOLCHILDREN ALLOWED' - I don't even notice that really since it's the same all over the UK and I think it's quite understandable, as when you get big groups of kids in those shops they shoplift and the shopkeeper can't keep an eye on them all. But Dirk said it would never be allowed in Germany because there would be too many people in an uproar about the kids' rights! What do you guys think in your country? ;) (I know Dirk already mentioned this to [livejournal.com profile] lobolita ;))

In the US (at least in my area), the kids would not be allowed in the store until they were 18 years old unless accompanied by an adult.

Oh, okay. I totally mis-read your post (not enough coffee at the time, apparently). I thought you meant places that only served tobacco or liquor exclusively.

Though I believe that all places that sell alcohol need a license to do it, so most convenience stores here do not sell alcohol at all (so there's no age restriction to enter), though practically all convenience stores and gas stations sell tobacco products from behind the counter. But because it's behind the counter and supposedly needs ID to purchase, there is again no age restriction.

I think restrictions on how many kids can enter a store at one time is at the discretion of the manager/owner.

if kids have "rights" then they should be able to be clapped in jail if they steal!! Simples!
