Even offline, retailers track your every move
Retailers are getting smarter about how you shop in their brick-and-mortar

A> I don't carry a phone (Usually) - I generally leave it in the car, or at home...
B> When I do carry a phone, my movement around a store is generally random...I just walk around basically with my eyes closed...so the data they would get from me, would be completely screwed, as I look at stuff I have absolutely no interest in.

Aren't there anti-stalking laws? ;)

I usually scan the entire store one row at a time, but only pick up one item.

The scanning order is random depending on my mood.

Also, old fashioned dumb cellphone that is only capable of voice and text.

They might call me a psychopath for it, but I do not appreciate people following me by any method.
