Generally, store employees "stalk" customers either because they suspect the customer of stealing because the customer is acting suspicious OR because they are profiling the customer by race or national origin and believe they may be a thief based on that which is ILLEGAL discrimination. Generally the latter is the most common reason store employees follow customers around because they do not know the customer enough to have enough on them to actually suspect them of possibly stealing in most cases.

If this is the case, then it is grounds to file a complaint of discrimination to the state commission on human rights and also for suing for discrimination and seeking damages.

This situation started when I said something to the cashier about being prejudice and told the Manager. I feel like being intimated or harrassed when I walk in the store for grocery. I never stole from any store.

It certainly sounds like I was right then, it sounds to me like they are following you based on race or some discriminatory ground and this is a complaint you can file with the Commission on Human/Civil Rights and even the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and you could sue them for a civil rights violation.
