It would have been an act of kindness to have kept it safe.
But for how long? - A day, two days, a week, a fortnight (they could have gone off on a holiday and forgotten the the scooter in the rush to prepare)? The shopkeeper wasn't to know. Once again - space in small shops is at a premium, a scooter cannot be kept in the aisles (for obvious reasons) and room behind the counter or in whatever limited storage they have is at a premium. 30 minutes is often long enough for something as large (and treasured?) as a scooter to be called back for - or did the OP have something else urgent to get done? No shopkeeper can manage such an open ended storage commitment. Very different for a small, valuable, item such as keys or a wallet, which can be stored conveniently. Perhaps if the OP had called the shop (if they couldn't get back in 30 minutes)? And given a firm time to collect?
