Actually, they probably have a very similar policy to most other retail stores. We are not allowed to give out bags, because often when we do that person goes right around and uses it to put unpaid merchandise in it. LP departments watch for that sort of thing - and sure, you might get indignant and say you aren't a thief, but you're looking at one of many corporations that treat their workers like thieves that only incidentally haven't been caught yet.

Still, I think she should have been able to swing something since you already had a paid-for purchase. Perhaps 'nasty cashier' was just a little strict on the rules while trying to do her job (or trying to keep 'nice cashier' with a secure job), or maybe JCP's loss prevention policies are a bit harder than my company's. Either way, I personally guarantee you that 'nasty cashier' wasn't opening her mouth with the express purpose of ruining your day, even if she said something she knew you weren't going to like. It's a hard thing to do, for many reasons - the least of them being that she gets stuck with the designation of 'nasty' for doing her job. Retail employees are treated like dirt half the time even when they manage not to say anything that offends the consumer's delicate sensibilities regarding the mistaken notion that 'the customer is always right' even when immutable store policy says he is most certainly wrong. No one in their right mind willing sets out for confrontation with the customer, because more often than not that leads to the cashier getting into a load of trouble (customer complaints, customer service surveys etc) even when they are following something the corporation demanded of them earlier in the day.

I'm sorry you had such an unsatisfactory experience, but I can't help but feel a bit bad for the cashiers, stuck as they are between a rock and a very, very hard place.
