  1. Stores should now have “No Masks Allowed” signs. How is anybody going to recognize that guy?

  2. Any customer that wants to try on jewelry should have their drivers license verified and copied by the store clerk before trying it on, just like they do when you test drive a car. Also no more that one piece of jewelry should taken out at a time. They also should consider digital hand scanning for anyone that wants to try on jewelry. Times are changing…..
