It Is Just Plain Wrong! | Business
Plenty of East Montgomerians depend upon Montgomery's bus system for public transportation. While walking in the Eastdale Mall parking lot, my husband and I would occasionally spot the MATS bus on its Eastdale Mall bus route. I agree with Alvin Holmes when according to an article in The Montgomery Advertiser, Holmes said if Dillards "is having trouble with people stealing," Dillards "should enhance its security."
Dillards should hire a couple of in-store detectives or security officers to patrol the store. I read also an opinion stating that even though Dillards is on private property, Eastdale Mall serves the public. I myself am handicapped, so I can identify with elderly folks having to walk to the store. I cannot walk but a short distance, then my back starts hurting. Why can't the MATS bus stop in front of Sears?
Dillards is only hurting its own business when the store is asking the MATS bus to stop pausing at one of the store's entrances. Who knows how many people there are who would have bought something at Dillards if only they could have a bus ride there! The handicapped person can shop, then rest on one of the benches Dillards provides between the outside entrances and the inside entrances.
Security officers can patrol the store for busy hands who take things without paying for them. They could also be stationed at each entrance to check the merchandise in a shopper's possession with receipts in order to assure themselves that the merchandise was actually bought. I think shoppers would feel more secure knowing that security personnel were around.
Let's encourage the shopping business, but discourage stealing by seeing to it that someone is guarding the store merchandise! Stealing is just plain wrong!
