My son use to do this , He used to scream and knock things off the shelf delebratly then he would look around to see if people were close by and if they were he would continue with his beahvour. UGH! I started paying attention to the way I disipline in the home and outside the home. It was two diffrent disapplines, I was more laxy daisy out in public because I didnt want the embarassment. I got to a point where I knew that I had to do something cause doing nothing was leaving me feeling embarrased anyway. Maybe tell you gaughter that if she doesnt behave that you will leave the store and go home? I had to leave many times!! My husband use to bring my son to the car for a time out, then go back in and try again What works is being consistant with whatever appraoch you choose. Dont reward with treats from the store if shes good. If shes good reward her with your positive feedback!
