BATON ROUGE, LA – Black Friday is mere hours away, and Attorney General Jeff Landry wants Louisiana consumers to keep their holidays happy by avoiding the risks that come with shopping.
“While taking advantage of any sweet deals or really low prices, I encourage consumers to be vigilant,” said Attorney General Landry. “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.
