Why should we care about shoplifters? We hear this question a lot usually followed by… “they have insurance,” “they’re a big business, they deserve it with the prices they charge,” “the shoplifter is only trying to feed/cloth their family.” None of these are valid reasons for stealing.
Let’s take a look at these “excuses.”
According to the National Retail Federation, in 2021 retail thefts cost the industry over $94 billion in losses. All of this leads to an increase in prices or stores deciding to close a specific location due to an increase in thefts.
