Macy's And Barneys Among Stores To Post Shoppers' 'Bill of Rights'

In the ongoing saga surrounding racial profiling in New York stores, several retailers have agreed to a customer bill of rights in an effort to prevent unreasonable searches. The one-page declaration will be posted in stores and draws from existing policies prohibiting racial profiling. Macy's, Barney's New York, Bloomingdale's, Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue are among retailers that have agreed to hang the "bill of rights" in their stores after numerous incidents in which black shoppers were detained by police and store security after purchasing luxury items surfaced in recent months.
