One of the owners stood watching my brother and I as we browsed the camera selection, looking for used lenses. This went on for about 15 minutes until he took a photo of us (unfortunately for him, the "click" sound wasn't disabled, so we caught him). We politely asked why he felt the need to do that, as it made us feel like criminals and seemed like he was collecting "proof" or our identity in case we stole. He dodged questions and said he was "just taking a photo of the store, and you guys might be in the background of the photo". We pressed him to show us the photo and he told us a story about someone who stole a book several weeks ago, a story that had nothing to do with us. We made it clear that we didn't go there to steal, even mentioning that my brother has been there several times and purchased lenses and books.
I've never been so blatantly profiled in my life. If you've ever been racially profiled, this scenario shouldn't sound new to you.
Given my experience, I cannot recommend this store at all.
