Back in January I bought a coat in a store in Sorrento called Piazza Italia - it's a women's clothing store.
I get all the way home to Australia and find the coat still has a security tag attached.
I've taken the coat to stores near my home to see if anyone has a device they can use to remove the tag. No luck. I've tried emailing the store but there are no contact details for them on the website (which was hard enough to find as it is - every search for Piazza Italia came up with pizza restaurants worldwide...)
My question is.....are these Italian security tags loaded with dye so if I smash it off, my coat is wrecked? There is no indication on the tag that it contains dye but the coat is (a) gorgeous and (b) Italian made - expensive so I don't want to wreck it.
Why on earth I didn't set off security alarms in the shop is anyone's guess, lol!
Should I get the hammer out? - what would you do?Edited: 31 March 2013, 23:57
