As previously stated, the damages portion from a LEGAL perspective would be de minimis (minor).
AS A PARENT, gracious, that certainly would be upsetting. Best advice: stop going to that store.
Sorry you went through a tough time! It would upset me too.

Charged, But Not Convicted JOB APPLICATIONS
MARCH 3, 2011
One of THE MOST common inquiries received on a daily basis, in addition to general questions about DWI / DUI charges, is how to answer questions during job interviews.
Generally Speaking: Answer Honestly, But Carefully.
The harder issue is whether to answer a question that was never asked: Do I...
That SOUNDS like a "Provisional Licensee Violation" pursuant to North Carolina General Statute 20-138.3. Some call it the "Under-Age DWI." Put simply, there is a ZERO TOLERANCE law in North Carolina regarding operating a motor vehicle and ANY amount of alcohol by persons under the age of 21.
They are extremely complicated and although handled differently than an DWI, the consequences are very similar. . .if not worse than an DWI. That is especially true regarding associated DMV issues....
There are several competing legal issues:
First, it is important to note that driving privileges may not be an option or otherwise in order.
The issue has been discussed in North Carolina v. Bowes. The Department of Transportation / Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) appears to take the position that certain younger operators are not, despite a Judicial Order / Privilege to the contrary, entitled to driving privileges.
Second, when and if someone is convicted of an DWI, there may be...
Generally speaking (there are exceptions) an DWI under North Carolina General Statute 20-138.1 is considered a MISDEMEANOR. Given the issuance of a Limited Privilege, that sounds consistent with a misdemeanor.
It is important to note though, the laws regarding presenting DWI cases in court, sentencing, punishment, etc., are not associated with a structured sentencing guideline that is used for Class A1 through Class 3 Misdemeanors. It's different, both in format and punishments.
Tough question, as "record" normally would indicate convictions; yet, in this computer era, being charged has somehow come to be known as part of such "record." If applying for a State job, they'd probably want to know. . .but a dismissal is NOT the same thing as a conviction.

Unlawful concealment / Shoplifting is a case that can have long-term consequences. One would be wise to speak with an experienced attorney.
There indeed could be criminal charges, although that seems unlikely. What normally happens in Mecklenburg County, especially with the BigBox vendors is to receive a letter banning people from the premises and a demand for payment of certain fees to avoid a civil lawsuit.
Best of luck,
