— Thieves may have stolen the identities of shoppers at a Triangle shoe store.

DSW Shoe Warehouse announced hackers had access to as many as 1.4 million credit card numbers and information on 90,000 checks nationwide.

Shoppers who bought shoes at the Cary DSW store between November and February are vulnerable. If that includes you, the company suggests you contact your credit card company and bank.
