Barratts Shoes and data collection
I was shopping in Barratts shoes recently and paid with my chip and pin card. Interestingly, in this age where everyone is paranoid about card skimming, the sales assistant asked to swipe the card on the POS to complete the transaction. I can only assume that Barratts have installed the new chip and pin system, but their legacy tills still require a card swipe to complete a transaction. This is really very poor and does nothing to assuage customer worries. Of course, the best course of action is to vote with your feet and purchase elsewhere.
