The good news is, my bike was not stolen. The bad news is, a couple emerged from Target to find one of their bikes was stolen, a bike apparently valued at $1,300. Naturally, Target management couldn’t do anything, as they’re not liable for what happens in the parking lot. The problem is, their bike parking facilities made it all too easy for the thief to cut the locks and get away, and the lack of security cameras means the police will have nothing to work with (the couple was going to file a report).
Remember the experiment I did a couple of months ago? I emailed a few big companies to see what they would do, if anything, when I sent them feedback about a lack of bike parking at their stores.
