Walmart To Use Wrist Bands For Repeat Offender Customers

With an estimated 140 million Americans predicted to shop this weekend, retailers are bolstering security, deploying Segway patrols and putting on live music to distract shoppers and avoid the deal-hunting scrums that can foster Black Friday tramplings. Malls are beefing up patrols with off-duty cops. Chains including Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) are using quota systems for popular doorbusters from iPads to jewelry. In recent years, Wal-Mart worked with crowd management experts and devised plans to address how shoppers flow through and out of its stores. This year, Wal-Mart will distribute wristbands for its special events on Thanksgiving Day. Walmart is hoping to coordinate the Walmart wristband roll-out with their earlier release of their popular Lindsey Lohan ankle bracelet monitor collection.
