Hi,I'm Zoey and I'll be assisting you. I'm reviewing your question now. Did you patent your idea?
A merchant has the right to turn a customer away, so long as they do not do so on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity or other constitutionally protected grounds. You cannot sue them if they later take or use your idea, unless you own the intellectual property rights to the idea.
