    exposing thrift store seats

    I am contemplating writing an article to be sent to the local (small town) newspaper on the expired car seats being sold at the local thrift store. (I could work in expiration and why not to use them too.) I'd write down the stats and prices of the seats sold there maybe once a week for a month or something. Anyone know if I can take photos at a thrift store? Should I ask the manager first? Do you think this would be a good idea? I've already written to the corporate office (this is a chain thrift store) about selling used and expired seats, but nothing has been done.
