Just for looking
AUSTRALIA -

A store in Australia is not a fan of customers walking around without buying anything.

Celiac Supplies, a food store, posted a sign informing shoppers of a new specialty fee of $5 for "just looking."

The store claims the fee is to stop people from "showrooming," when a customer looks at items in a physical store but makes the purchase online.

The sign assures customers that they will get their $5 back if they buy something.
