Re: What is a "Floorwalker" at/in Emporium #general

A floorwalker was an employee of a store usually the equivalent of a
magazijn whose presence in the sales area was to discourage stealing, but
also was prepared to answer questions about merchandise. The Emporium was
a common name for what we in the USA refer to as department stores or in
your teminology a magazijn, pakhuis, warenhuis
