I don't understand retail places that do centrally controlled locks.  Nothing like a good-old-fashioned key and a motion-sensor alarm.  If the power goes out, you can still get in/out of the place.

The store is asking the men to come forward so they can thank them for their honesty with gift certificates.

As a retail manager who recently locked a customer in the store shopping in the most secluded part in my store, I'm getting a kick out of this.

/yes I'm serious.
//offered the guy the stuff for free(only a greeting card and water)
///cops got some lolz

Took the tot strawberry picking. We went to pay and found that they had a self serve cash register. Drop twenties in a slot, but make change with what they left in the cash register. All their store goods like jams, shortcakes, ect... were available to pick up. No one minded the store. The proprieter said they had this policy for over a decade. Thankfully there was a calcualator. They may have been ripped off at some point, but my guess is that the cost of employing a clerk would more than cover. It was cool. We ended up trying to spend the whole twenty dollars instead of making change.

I'm not sure how it's related to this story, but if the power goes down you can still get in and out of places with centrally controlled locks too. Generally speaking it's illegal for that not to be the case; even when the business is closed to the public there must be sufficient fire exists for the staff, and they must be operable even when the power is out (not to mention batteries and the like). Plus it's not like mechanical keys are without their limitations; people didn't start installing centrally-controlled locks because they felt like keys were the ideal physical access control solution.

Exit doors are one-way crash-bar things - that doesn't really apply.

I've worked independent retail and national chain retail.  I could see how some nervous nellie at corporate would prefer the centrally-controlled.  But if you hire people you trust in the first place, and you'll have both better sales and lower shrink.  Put your money into HR and corporate culture instead of cameras and locks.

I did this at a home brew store a few years back.  It was way back in a industrial park but definatly set up for retail. I went at lunchtime from work, shopped for a good 20 minutes and no employee showed up the whole time. I left the cash and a note under the register.

I feel bad because I don't get the reference; my dad was a big Eastwood fan when I was growing up and I thought I'd seen all of his stuff. Eastwood's, not my dad's. And by "stuff" I mean "movies"; I have never seen Eastwood's (or my dad's, for that matter) "stuff".

And by "stuff" I mean "penis".

Things should be reported as is without regard to race, creed, etc. Pick any race, nationality, burg, whatever, and there are a lot more good honest people than there are bad. Trouble is virtually every media outlet panders to the lowest common denominator, and the sleazy and sensational is virtually all that you hear.
