Feedback at 5:00: Window Shopping Fees

Posted: Updated:

At a store in Brisbane, Australia – just looking around inside will cost you.

The retailer has a simple message for anyone who wants to just window-shop: pay up or get out.

A sign on display at Celiac Supplies, a gluten-free store, says a $5 fee will be charged for anyone who is "just looking."

The shop owner says she's trying to stop people from coming in, getting information from her, and then buying the same product online or elsewhere for less.

The $5 fee is deducted when a customer buys something.

What do you think of the fee to browse? It's tonight's "Feedback at 5:00."
