TAMPA, Florida - A 10 News Investigators report about revealing dressing rooms has uncovered another national chain guilty of compromising your privacy.

Saks Fifth Avenue also utilizes the tactic of installing privacy blinds backward so employees can see into the dressing room when the customer has an assumed expectation of privacy.  Macy's acknowledged the procedure was part of their loss prevention policy.

10 News viewers sounded off, complaining about employees' ability to see them changing, as well as the risk of non-employees walking in to peep.

Saks refused to comment on the findings, but like Macy's, would not indicate any change was imminent. 

Following last week's 10 News Investigators reports, one chain - Ann Inc., owner of LOFT and Ann Taylor stores - indicated it had completed an internal store survey and planned on reversing any doors installed the wrong way.  Ann Inc. said it never had the intention of allowing people to see into its fitting rooms.

If you see a dressing room that you think compromises privacy, call the 10 News Investigators at 727-577-TIPS.  Even better, snap a picture or video (please do not peep on other customers!) and send it to noah@wtsp.com.
