Am I being "the overprotective mom"?

Now, about 6 weeks ago, we went to the market and one of the female cashiers who rang us up, told us, "I have something to tell you" and went on to explain that this boy was smitten with my DD. She had told him herself that DD was only in 8th grade because she knew this from when DD came in a few times with her school uniform on. He refused to believe her. I, very emphatically, said that she was 13 going on 14 and perhaps she could communicate this to him. She said she'd "try", but was hesitant because she wasn't supposed to tell us about his smitten condition.
Anyway, to make a long story a bit shorter: A few weeks ago, DD and I went there when she had a cast on her leg. I have avoided his line ever since I found this out, but he saw us in another line, went to another cashier and bought her a bouquet of flowers and then walked over and gave it to her as a get well gift. As I was getting my groceries rung up, she walked back over to him, crutches and all, to thank him and she told me when we left that he had hugged her around the shoulders with one arm. I didn't see this because I was writing my check out.
I told her that we could not go back to that market because I felt this had gone too far. She fussed about it for awhile, but I am adamant. I won't even go there myself now because I just don't want to encounter him.
What do you guys think?
