Yeah, at 4...DS would get a warning and then I would leave and he would miss out on anything else we were supposed to be doing.
Once he had calmed down I would discuss it with him. There is no point discussing things during the tantrum!
I usually do a reminder before we go into the shops about what is expected and what rewards are for good behaviour.

Thanks everyone. I completely support what my sister did, and it sounds like everyone else does too. I was kidding myself that there might be a miracle on offering LOL

I have video recorded DSs tantrums and show him when he's throwing a tanty and it calms him down for some reason lol.
I have had to deal with DS 2.5s horrible tanty recently and i have noticed talking to him before going out works surprisingly. I sit him down look him straight in the eye in a assertive tone that we are going to go out. This is the day and he is not going to throw tantrums because of this and that and if he's a good boy I will paint with him or blow bubbles and I am so surprised that's it's worked every single time so far! Fingers crossed will always work.
But I would've handled that situation the same as your sister.
