The shops are nice and overall it's a nice place to stroll by the river when the weather isn't brutal. I think I would like it better if it had less chain restaurants and maybe had a more Louisiana-y feel to it but that's just me.

Subject: Incident at the Louisiana Boardwalk 540 Boardwalk Boulevard Bossier City, LA

Hello,
My name is Linda from Dallas TX area. For the past few years my family and I have traveled to Bossier City LA for our family gatherings, some coming from Mississippi. We are a family of 7, ages range from 70 to 21. The Boardwalk has been a favorite shopping place until March 6 2011.

On March 6 2011, my family and I arrived at the Boardwalk by 11:00; we visited
several shops, Gap, Fossil, Farmer Almanac, we had lunch at Fuddruckers, ice cream at Stone Cold, candy at the Chocolate Crocodile, purchased shoes from a street vender, and visited several shops, spending hundreds of dollars. It was fun shopping.

While shopping, I had noticed a security guard that seemed odd, odd enough for me to take note of him. But I dismissed it from my mind as I continued my day with my family.
As my family and I were walking back from the Bass Pro Shop area, the same security guard I had noticed earlier walks pass me and my oldest son, Jason. The security guard is glaring at Jason, to the point Jason stops walking and says ??Hi?. I also turn to watch the security guard as he walked pass without saying anything. I continued to watch the security guard as he walks pass my mother and husband, then he walked up to my youngest son, Alton. Alton is the reason we were he shopping, it was his 21st birthday.
We had several bags each from our shopping, obvious of a family shopping spree. Alton was wearing a Texas Rangers baseball cap, and he was wearing it backwards. Anyway, the security guard walks up and stops Alton, saying ??you have to wear your hat properly here, TURN IT AROUND.? Alton fussing walks up to me, as he is turning his hat around. I ask,? What did he just say?? Even though I did hear him, I was thinking surely I must have missed something. As we were walking, trying to decided which store we were going to go into next, Alton is fiddling with his hat, ??mom, I hate it this way? as he was moving it from side to side, I tell him just not to wear it at all. The security guard then screams from behind us, ??LEAVE THE PROPERTY!!? This made my husband, David upset and he had words with the security guard. I spoke up, saying let??s just all go. We were making our way to our cars; we realized we are being followed by a golf cart with the security guard and now the Bossier P.D.? David stops to talk to the group, to see what exactly the problem is. I walk back to the group to get the car keys and hear the police officer explain, because of gang activity, they monitor attire and the way someone wears their hats. We were clearly not a gang, nor did we have any offensive clothing. We were not informed of the ??policies? until being escorted off the property. I looked in the restroom/ elevator area and in the stair area for a posting or warnings. I saw no such postings.

With the economy the way it is Bossier City, like any area, needs the outside business people like us bring. We were not loud, weary anything improper, or misbehaving in anyway. We were the normal American family of 7 obviously shopping. Needless to say, we will never come back to shop. That is a lost to your shops and to your city. I would suggest to train your security guard how to speak to the public and to post clear rules and policies. If the security guard had been polite and explained why and the policies, we could have avoid the whole incident.

I write only because if this had happened at my business, I would have wanted to know and followed up on it.

Thank you for your time,
Linda ~Dallas TX

My family includes two humans and two canines. While traveling through, we wanted to stop and take a walk. We had heard of the Boardwalk, but had yet to go. We thought to ourselves, "What better place is there for a walk than at the Boardwalk where we could enjoy being next to the river and looking at all the shops?". Boy were we wrong. Despite being outside, our family was not welcome as there is a no pets allowed policy.

Many of you may not care, but I know that others may find this useful knowledge so that they are not turned away disappointed like my family was.

This mall is laid out very well, and being open air, has some great scenery. On the banks of the Red River with many great stores to choose from. You can shop, eat, or just walk around and enjoy.

I love the fact that developers are going back to the open air malls, without it just being a "strip" mall. I have only been able to come once, but I know on return visits to see family, I will be back. It is apparent that much thought went into the planning of this shopping district and I believe it paid off, with what is already there. From the trolley, to building it along side the river, attention to detail has attracted some major businesses and tons of shoppers. Also getting in on the Mardi Gras, shows they intend to think outside the box to keep in interesting and fun for shoppers.

We stopped into the Louisiana Boardwalk a couple of times and have really enjoyed being there. It is lovely...right on the Red River off of I-20 . And there are so many stores and still more to come. There is something for everyone. A couple of good eateries and a theater to go to. Let the whole family just relax for a while on the Boardwalk.
