Many people often ask me why I have a security gate in the eSquared Cape Town store. Well, here is another reason why.
About half an our ago a known, Sea Point street wonderer ( a person who lives either on the street on in a shelter and is jobless) tried to gain access into the Cape Town store, but I would NOT buzz him in. So he hung himself over the gate and started staring at me.
I called armed response immediately and they held on the line with me until one of their security guards arrived. However, this street wonderer would NOT leave. he started pulling on the gate and then lit a cigarette and pushed himself up against the window.
He immediately fled when the securty guard arrived. All is thankfully alright now and no real harm was done.
However, this is a VERY REAL and COMMON occurance in Cape Town, especially the CBD area, during season. Chancers are all over the place.
So, I hope some of you can now understand why I have to have my trusty security gate at the entrance of the store. It’s not just for my our safety, but for your safety too. Had I not had this security gate, who knows what may have happened… to the store, to me or even customers.
