Well, my point is there were only 15 to 20 people that I ramdonly estimated to be on the lower level dept. floor. It was close to closing around 8:00pm. This is so embarrassing, and no I don't have a clue if they were targeting me or if there was another situation going on elsewhere in the Dept store.(I am not a thief) and would not think of taking what does not belong to me However, I personally feel this is very "tacky" and I'm sure make some shoppers feel a bit uneasy, even when they know they have nothing to worry about because they are honest shoppers.
It would seem with all the sophisticated electronic equipment today, you would think Dillard's security could radio one another as they watch the security monitors throughout the store and place an alert if need be among their security staff without blasting it all over the dept. speakers.
Dillard's is not the only shopping dept. that caters to this ridiculous anouncement throughout their business day over their speaker systems for all to hear; other stores do it as well. I wonder why is it done in this manner or shall I say "fashion".
