No, it’s not illegal. One thing that most people don’t realize is that retail establishments are in fact PRIVATE property. They can establish almost any rule or policy they want...
Another problem Wal-Mart seems to have is their shop lifting detection system setting off false alarms. I see this all the time, even more so than the stop and searches.

The security staff have no warrant card that gives them the legal right to detain you against your will (at least here in the UK) , it's just assumed that most folk don't know this and will comply with any goon in a uniform.
