Odd Blunt Way of Scaring Off Shoplifters

I was at a local grocery store today and it appeared that they were renovated a portion of the store to introduce something new. Wasn’t this a very surprising signage that I saw:

As you can see, the sign says “Coming Soon, Shoplifters’ holding room”. I had to look at it a couple of times to digest whether or not this was a serious construction of sort. I have never seen a business specifically advertise itself in creating a holding place for shoplifters and it made me wonder if the problem was that rampant to warrant such a thing.

Kind of makes you wonder too about the type of impact this has for regular customers to be walking by and seeing this. Most companies simply apprehend the shoplifter and then bring them to the office. This must be a way of embarrassing a perpetrator too since it is right at the entrance of the store.
