Default Re: is it me or WalMart?

Freebird - I think we are all aware of the amount lost due to shoplifting, however it is minucule in comparison to internal theft and therein lies the solution.

If retailers have better control systems to manage/oversee the outflow of merchandise, the need to check everyday consumers would go away - people slipping though with unpaid merchandise would be minimized and this would become a non-issue. Those processes would then also minimize internal theft as well.

It is a 99% retailer problem, not a consumer one.

(speaking from experience)
