WIKY Morning Show Re-Cap August 9th

 

WIKY Morning Show August 9, 2011

**DJB and Diane found this story rather disturbing - apparently, major department stores around the country have started reversing the slats on their dressing room doors.  Now, instead of keeping you private and helping you see out of the dressing room, people walking by can see IN. 

 They say they're doing it to prevent shoplifting.  Now employees can walk around the dressing room area and look in on people to make sure they're not stealing.

 Of course, it means they'll be able to look in and see you NAKED.  And not just the employees . . . anyone.  But the stores aren't so concerned about that. 

 Apparently Macy's, Dillard's, Ann Taylor Loft, and Saks Fifth Avenue have already installed the reverse slats in several of their stores. 

 In a statement, Macy's said they've done it because, quote, "Retailers work hard to strike a balance between preserving the privacy of customers, providing customer service, maintaining customer safety in fitting rooms, and deterring theft." 

 We heard from a number of listeners here in the Tri-state that let us know it’s not only common in department stores in our area, it’s nothing new.  The reverse slats have been around for a long time.  If that’s the case, we want to know why bother with dressing rooms?  Just try everything on in the middle of the store!
