You wrote, Why don't you use your debit card at the grocercy store checkout line and avoid the fee.

I'm confused.

I thought we were talking ATMs, not debit cards. I don't think vkg's post specifically said she was going to the store to shop - only that she used an ATM in a store for safety. (Stores are well lit, often have store security personnel and their ATMs are usually in view of store personnel.)

Also, just because an ATM is in a store doesn't mean you're going to be charged a fee. Banks around here often have branches inside stores and the ATMs for that branch are free to customers of that bank.
