poor care. Snails have often been starved at many stores. Give them tips on feeding snails properly. None of that, "They'll eat algae and poop" line.

BUying them all doesn't change the store. It just means they'll buy more. An dI hope you didn't pay for them all. Snails like fish should come with warranties.
