Mall's ban on hoodies met with mixed reactions


ANDERSON, In. - A ban at a mall in Indiana has been met with mixed reviews.

The Mound Mall in Anderson is asking shoppers to lower their hoodies.

Some said the sign goes too far, but others said it makes them feel safe.

“Whatever they need to do for their business to increase. It’s about having customers come out to the mall and be safe,” shopper Robert Glazebrooks said.

Mall management said the hoodie policy has been in place since 2004, and the sign was recently posted as a reminder.

“I think it’s very discriminating. It makes me want to shop elsewhere and not come here,” shopper Debonaire Brown said.
