Did you have items in your purse? If so then their suspicions were correct, regardless of your reason. A store may detain you for a reasonable period based on the reasonable belief of theft. Here, it does not appear that you were even detained so I don't know what you are seeking to accomplish. A mere accusation did not harm you so I don't know sort of remedy you are seeking.
