Shopping Safety Tip 


Don’t create an opportunity for a thief.  Don’t become a victim. Next time you are using a shopping cart keep these tips in mind:

  • DO NOT leave your pocketbook in the shopping cart.
  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
  • Pay attention to people who look suspicious.
  • If you suspect that someone seems to be lurking or following you around the store, alert store management.
  • When possible shop without a purse.
  • If you choose to carry a purse when shopping keep it closed and secured to your body.
