She was not greeted by a gracious store clerk ready to serve her, but by a clerk who told her to leave because she had a dog. Becky explained that Cricket was a service animal who acts as her eyes, and the clerk still insisted that she leave. Finally, Becky told Cricket to lead her out.

After hearing Becky repeatedly state that Cricket is a service animal, the best that employee could muster up was an apology that the store didn't allow Cricket in? Seriously?

They have already apologized. Twice, apparently, since they said something dumb the first time around:

This sounds like one employee who didn't know the store's policy. Then to save her own asparagus, she made up a lie (about the harness) and got the company into trouble.

Becky is a thousand times more gracious and civilized than I would ever be in this situation.
