On February 13th 2008 I was stranded on the Bypass in 3 degree temps. I walked to ShopKo but it was 20 minutes until it opened. I pleaded with an employee to come to door but was intentionally ignored. When other employees showed up they were let in through the front by the same idiot who was ignoring me. I asked for use of the phone. NO! I asked if someone had a cell phone I could use.NO! I asked if they could at least go inside and call the POLICE FOR ME!!! NO! Due to their company policy I was made to stand and wait outside in freezing temperatures. And because I didn't kiss their a$$ for using the phone they threatened to have me arrested and almost didn't let me use the phone I waited so long to use!!!!!!

I'm sorry to hear that. There are a couple of 24 hr gas stations nearby. It's unfortunate that a few random nuts have managed to gum up our way of life and resulting loss of freedoms. I'm sure there is some sort of corporate policy that prevents employees from helping even if they wanted too. Keep your chin up.

no this is completely unacceptable, and there's nothing to justify it ''random nuts'' the whole neighborhood is nuts, the real reaction should be who were the few random cops who even responded? they rarely even take emergency calls seriously how long did it take for the police to arrive? and you could've died out there. People have no common sense anymore, it seems as if people are looking for a super hero badge so they could have a pat on their back, from people who don't care nothing about them

You could have gone to Culvers we would've let you use a phone. We are right next door and not open yet but employees there. Lots of gas stations nearby too. Not sure why you chose to harass Shopko, You are lucky they didn't have you arrested.
