    The Ten Spot seems to have done this at many (all?) of its locations.

    Awful.

    Wow that's terrible. Perhaps contacting the BIA to discourage retailers from installing the film?

    The BIA likely supports whatever it is that it's its members think will help sales.

    But, yes, it's terrible.

    ETA: Corrected to fix horrible typo

    I'm not necessarily opposed to all window film. I think there can be some fairly respectable one-third wraps or 'trims.' But we need to tame this beast before it gets worse.

    Ten Spot appears to have removed all this window film, and has returned to having windows that one can use to actually see inside. I can only assume that my one whiny post above was the prompt Ten Spot needed to do the right thing.

    On a related matter, I am old enough to remember when frosted windows like this meant that the business sold porn magazines or videos:

    Frills.
