Rogers Requires Some Customers to Ring a Doorbell and Produce ID Before Entering Their Stores

Phillip Dampier September 8, 2022 Canada, Consumer News, Rogers 1 Comment

Rogers’ attitude towards loyal customers seems to be summed up by what people encounter when visiting some of their retail locations: a locked door.

Canada’s largest cable operator now requires customers visiting some of its store locations to ring a doorbell, produce a government-issued photo ID, remove any head coverings or masks, and wait to see if a store employee will unlock the front door.

“The safety of our team members and customers is of the utmost importance to us,” Rogers spokesperson Chloe Luciani-Girouard said in a statement to CBC Toronto. “Several measures have been put in place over the last few years to improve safety in the stores, including robust training, upgraded cameras, and enhanced door screening policy.”

Rogers quietly implemented the new security measures at a few store locations a few years ago but refuses to tell customers which of the growing number of  store locations are affected. Most find out when they encounter a locked door and wait for a security guard to size them up using security cameras.

Some customers are unimpressed with the policy:

Rogers stores already have security guards in place as a theft deterrent, but the company obviously feels that isn’t enough to keep would-be thieves from swiping valuable cell phones.
