jso2897: Not in uptown, high-line jewelry stores. They don't do "loss prevention" (to the public - they are fierce on their employees) because it turns off rich, hig-class people, and they go away nad don't buy your stuff.
The Evil That Lies In The Hearts Of Men: A guard costs a ton of money and when it comes down to it there is not a lot they can legally do.
DrBrownCow: Would it really be out of line for a store located on the edge of the French Quarter and right across the street from a casino to check a photo id and method of payment before handing over 70k dollars in merchandise? Or, are people who really can afford $40,000 watches so sensitive that they would be offended or made to feel less special?
jso2897: There might have been - there isn't much detail in the story - but I 've seen and heard of door goons being successfully evaded - and often, they are not allowed to use any force to detain anyone. As a store owner (when I was one) I would NEVER allow it.
PainInTheASP: I'm wondering why the hell the guard that was sitting at the door didn't clothesline the dude with his nightstick.You sell genuine Rolex watches, so you must have a guard sitting by the door, right?Right?!?!
