With Black Friday a few days away, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry is offering tips for shoppers this holiday season.
“While taking advantage of any sweet deals or really low prices, I encourage consumers to be vigilant,” Landry said in a news release. “Please check and follow the tips below to help safely prepare for the holidays while still achieving maximum savings.”
- Be aware of surroundings. Stay alert when shopping and loading purchases into your vehicle.
- Keep a close eye on your valuables. Leave your phone, wallet, and other valuable items on your person; avoid putting them in your basket.
- Stay calm and cool. Do not fight with other customers over an item; a sale is not worth your safety.
- Remain vigilant on the roads. Practice patience, be cognizant of pedestrians, and obey all traffic laws.
