COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — New security installations at a Georgia Kroger has some shoppers feeling stereotyped. The Kroger in College Park has recently installed glass cages around certain sections in the store — but some shoppers say it’s racist.
I support these new security efforts. The ghetto whores are upset that it’s harder to shoplift now WTF?
The security installation only has one entrance, and many have used social media to voice their anger at what they say feels like shopping in a prison, just to buy toiletries or laundry detergent.
Shoppers all to happy to tell us about the amount of theft at the store.
“Have you heard of theft being a problem here? Yes I have, I have, yeah, quite a bit,” says yet another shopper.
Others say many people take things from shelves and use them in the bathroom without paying, but feel a less intimidating approach should be taken.
The company says, in part:
The changes are being implemented to help improve operational efficiencies and increase profitability. We take pride in keeping our shelves fully stocked and we believe these changes, which are part of a pilot project, will help us do so.
Besides the inconvenience, some shoppers say if they care about their customers a different solution should be found.
“Of course you don’t want to come in to where you’re afraid to shop, because you’re afraid someone’s going to steal or you’re afraid you’re going to be enclosed in the environment of them stealing, so of course you’re going to take precautions, but I don’t know if that’s the safest precaution,” says another shopper.
