No-purse policy cuts store's thefts
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Leave your purse in the car or you won't get service at one Colorado Springs liquor store. Colorado's Liquor Outlet has imposed a no-purse policy to combat shoplifting. Owner Wayne Harris also outlaws backpacks and bags men carry.
Harris said his typical weekly loss to shoplifting used to be about $300, but the problem has escalated this year, resulting in losses as high as $2,000 per week. He said thefts have dropped since he adopted the policy.
The purse prohibition has angered some people, and some vow to boycott the store. But Harris says his figures show the number of customers coming in is about the same as it was a year ago.
