There was a thread about this a while ago...apparently its not standard practice everywhere! I think the detractors were mostly stores located in places that experience higher crime, but in my area the shops have been all too happy to get me on a bike. I think its a reasonable request anywhere though...if a shop is hesitant, offer to leave some sort of ID and promise to keep the bike on pavement.
