Park And Shop Clothing Store!!!
Posted by on
This relates to a recent distasteful experience at one of the retail children's clothing store in Freeport. I am a frequent tourist in Bahamas. I also have grandchildren, and there has been occasions when time has not permitted me to shop before I land in Bahamas (ie - home) or the USA and I will shop in the local Freeport Stores. I was in Freeport in April 2008. When I entered the store, I greeted the two Caucasian ladies behind the cash register, they stared at me first, made me feel unwelcome then mumbled a hello. I went ahead and shopped. The sales staff on the floor were friendly and helped me, and while doing so, I noticed a security guard following and watching my every move. He was NOT on the floor when I entered the store. From then on I watched the security guard watching me, from one end of the store to the other!

That is the last time that I will shop there. Perhaps those 2 ladies felt it necessary to have their guard watch me, but for me, a tourist, I don't have to shop in your local retail stores. They will never see a cent from me again.

I have passed this information to my business associates, friends and family.

Thank you for this outlet.

Perhaps you are being paranoid. Maybe that security guard watches all shoppers he can closely. After all, it is his job.

He's paid to be suspisious.

I think jim has a point here, you should have gone up to him and ask him to hold your bag as long as he was standing there watching you.

Could this be a "shopping while minority" case? I have heard of many incidents where minorities are looked at with suspicion by some retail store employees and/or security personnel. This is wrong.
