According to IOL, a woman took to Facebook to confront Woolies after she noticed the fitting rooms had a camera in.

"Hey WOOLWORTHS, what’s up with the cameras in the fitting rooms of your Pavilion Shopping Centre store? Are you usually in the business of invading the privacy of your customers?" the Facebook post read.

However, they denied any customer's privacy was invaded because the camera allegedly points to the entrance and no fitting room is in its view.
