On Friday, most of the stores try to have a sales campaign to get you to shop at their store. Many people are in danger of pick pockets and other thieves who are also shopping for things. You could be a target of one of these thieves. Always keep your wallet close to you where nobody can steal it from you. Guard your purse and close it to prevent somebody from grabbing your wallet from inside of it. If you see a thief in action, please notify the nearest clerk or store manager. Time is of the greatest value here. Most stores have video cameras to verify thieves in action. If you have nothing to hide, then they are your protector when somebody falsely accuses you of doing something. I hope that nobody has any problems while shopping. Be alert and you will be in good shape. Please support the Bay View community.
