I understand that this situation has been very embarrassing and sad for this family and in my opinion this should never had happened, in saying that a lot of people have taken this story and ran with it. I'm not condoning such behavior by the store owner, but those who have called the Western shop and have left very dirty, derogatory messages to the other employees who work there should be ashamed. I know the other employees who work at the Western shop and they would never mistreat a customer of any kind. So for those of you who are unhappy with this unfortunate situation, do not take your angry out on those who were not involved with this situation. If you want to complain, I suggest doing to the one who is responsible for this sad event, not to the other employees who had no hand in it.
Also, this is not typical southern ignorance. Anyone who thinks this happened because the man is southern is more ignorant the the store owner.
Finally, almost all of the products in the Western shop are made in the USA. Next time, before you try to run someone down, get all of the facts first and then speak.
