Wow! I'm surprised they got out of the store with all the surveilence in place overhead. Yup, those all bubbles in the ceiling are big brother watching. Perhaps they were napping. LOL

Those cameras are used to look at suspects after the fact. They do not pay someone to watch the cameras constantly

The greeter will interrogate you at the door and check your bag to barcode any return that you bring in, even with a receipt (returns ares made @ service desk right next to front door), but apparently they don't pay attention what is already happening in the store. So, the 2 men who not only were able to steal a TV a first time, but apparently were able to return to take another.

I was told they no longer have a greeter at the door of Walmart to save money. Maybe they should put one back there.

Hmm, yes, I haven't had to return something since last winter, so it is a recent thing.

Perfect gig for you Joe, you wouldn't mind that it would be a NON paying position. Plus it would get you away from cutting pasting here in Patch world.

Never happen Tom. OSJL would be better when they come to town.

OSJL would be better and the majority of residents would like for it to come, but the newcomer millionaires in their fancy mansions will never allow it.

Well said Jim. I wonder how many tax dollars we have lost so far at the old S&S building. I really do not think companies are beating down the doors of S&S to move in there. I sure hope the FEW who were oposed to OSJL approve of the next company that looks at it. But if they do not it is only lost tax dollars ! So continue going to the store in Saugus it is great.

I do it is
Maclen September 18, 2012 at 09:34 PM
Why am I not surprised Joe, should have known from the signs you were a fan of OSGL. Personally don't like places like that or S&S situated across from where I attend church on Sunday. Was opposed to S&S way back then. Zoning in that area is terrible, and what they did to the front of St. Theresa's church, by placing that huge mountain of mulch to screen out Super Stop & Shop. Hey, since they went belly up, can we take down mulch mountain?
Maclen September 18, 2012 at 09:45 PM
Whether open or closed, S&S should still be paying their real state property taxes, or face the consequences just like any one else who doesn't pay. That is revenue in my book.

They do but tax dollars are lost when the building is not occupied.
