Did the police give them a fixed penalty notice?

The police advisethem that they will put the details in the system and the store would take them own decisicion which was a ban notice
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the police told them that they were banned from the stores in uk
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.

If that is right then nothing should happen.

They are just banned from the store.

If they enter again then they could be charged with burglary.

But unless they do that is the end of the matter.

Can I clarify anything for you?
