Do you "Comp-shop"? (esp at Whole Foods)

I went to a Whole Foods yesterday to price out stuff for an event- I was writing down cheese prices, and was asked, then forced, to LEAVE. "We don't permit writing down prices", I was told.

The cheeselady immediately jumped me- "Are you comp-shopping?". I didn't know what she meant- new term for me. But then she sent a young guy to me, telling me I had to leave. I asked- "what's wrong with me trying to price out a party?" He said, "good point...", and I walked away from him. Then he came back with a bigger guy to escort me out. I'm a 5'4" woman. With 2 grown men forcing me from the store, because I wrote down cheese prices.

Um, I'm sorry, in this economy, I'm not allowed to determine which store is going to give me the best bang for my buck, especially since I am planning a pretty large event, and the savings could be substantial?

I have a big event (100+ people) that I have to plan in the area of that WF, but surely won't be buying from them.

Is this "done"?
