Would You Pay a Store $5 To Look Around?
A gluten-free grocery store in Australia started charging a $5 fee to anyone who walks in the door. While it may sound outrageous at first, they have a good reason for the policy.
This store, which is a specialty store, had a lot of people coming in to look around only to go elsewhere, usually online, to buy the items. It’s called “showrooming.”
To combat this, the store started charging the fee. Someone saw this and posted it on Reddit.
Would you be willing to pay $5 to just look around?
