Two teenagers face being banned from a Woolworths store on the Gold Coast. The teens are accused of shoplifting and allegedly abusing supermarket staff. 9News

Mobile phone video filmed in March, which aired today, shows a Woolworths staff member stand up to two young women near the store's self-checkout.

"Leave the store immediately before I call the police," the staff member can be heard saying off-camera.Moments later, a young woman can be seen charging through the self-checkout and confronting a second staff member.The video then shows the first staff member intervening, holding her hands up to the teenager before pushing her lightly towards the store's exit.

It is at this point the second teenager swats at what is believed to be a customer holding a mobile phone, with the camera switched to record.Woolworths has taken steps to ban the pair from the supermarket."They are our frontline workers. To see them treated like this is incredibly concerning," Retail Association's Dominique Lamb told 9News.

"We know that during COVID-19 that we saw loss prevention, or shrink levels, go up over 100 per cent in some locations. So customer violence and customer abuse certainly went through the roof."
