I boils down to "expectation of privacy" here.  In a convenience store
(or any store) you have none.  In the bathrooms and fitting/changing
rooms you do in those same stores, but not at the registers.

So, no cameras or microphones in a bathroom or changing room (that would
include locker rooms at gyms too).  All else is fair game in Texas at
least.  I don't think a sign is even necessary.

I was asked by a doctor (a psychiatrist at that) to install a microphone
above his desk so he could record the patients.  I asked if he planned to
tell the patients they were being recorded and he said no.  I temporarily
declined the job until he produced a letter from his lawyer that exsolved
me of any crime and pointed to a legal clause that allowed such
recordings (which IMO is an area with an expectation of privacy, even
though the recordings are for the doctor's notes only).  I never heard
back from him.
