Privacy Turned Upside Down In Some Store Fitting Rooms

By CBS Radio Station Mix 105.1

Fitting room doors hung backwards to allow outsiders to glance inside has become the latest tactic retailers are using to combat theft, according to TV investigations at several Florida stores.

CBS affiliate WTSP News in Tampa reports that stores like Macy’s are hanging their dressing room doors upside down so they can see in and you can’t see out. Wood slats on the doors face up, meaning when you’re trying on that new bikini or bra, not only can the employees see you, but everyone else in the dressing room can too.

In a statement, Macy’s spokesperson Melissa Goff said they’ve done it because, “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.”
