‘Feel free to browse’ … for how much longer?

‘Feel free to browse’ … for how much longer? | exam questions considered | Scoop.it
‘Feel free to browse’ often strikes me as an odd sign in many shop windows.  Why wouldn’t I feel free to do so?

Ed Burrows's curator insight, April 29, 2013 2:02 PM

Many people blame online shopping for high street shops going out of business. This is due to them being able to charge less as they don't have to pay for the buildings and workers. So some bookstores decided to charge fee's for just browsing in the shops this is due to people walking into shops finding something they like and looking on there mobiles to see if they can find it cheaper online and then if they can leaving the store with nothing brought.
