A small local retailer, K & L Drugs, was shut down in michigan. The owner of the store said he didn’t believe it was shoplifting, but it was reported that one of the employees was charged with the crime. The owner said that in his experience, most people who shoplift are never caught. He said that in order to prevent shoplifting incidents from happening in the future, he would create a “shoplifter alert” system.
Another local retailer, K amp L Drugs, was shut down in michigan. The owner of the store said he didnt believe it was shoplifting, but it was reported that one of the employees was charged with the crime. The owner said that in his experience, most people who shoplift are never caught. He said that in order to prevent shoplifting incidents from happening in the future, he would create a shoplifter alert system.
This is a system that would be used to send out a message to retailers that shoplifted in the future. The alert would include, “we just found a lot of stolen items in your store.” The alert would also inform the retailer that they would get more alert when they opened up the store again. It would also tell them that they will get a $10,000 reward for a new shoplifting alert.
So if there was a store that we all knew about that was doing well, they would be alerted by the alert system. If it looked like a good idea, then it would be implemented. If it was not, the alert system would be shut down.
Shoplifting is a problem that affects a significant percentage of our community, and the alert system would be a way to help our community to fight back. As a small business owner, you know how it feels when you know that someone is out to steal from you. No matter how well you’ve advertised that you have safe and secure checkout and the best customer service, you know there’s always one or two people that will try to pull something.
One of the most obvious ways to fight back is to educate customers. We have a number of stores in our local mall that do not sell merchandise they do not own. We would like to see them adopt a more proactive approach to customer education.
In this case, we see evidence of a trend in the local mall. Several years ago, the manager at the mall started to get more calls from customers who were very unhappy with the merchandise they were buying, so he started to offer a variety of new and used merchandise at a discount. He gave the discount amount to the customer, and if they wanted the merchandise, they bought it. He also gave them the names of the people he thought were responsible for the problem.
The manager got more calls about the problem, and he did manage to get the mall’s owner to do something about it, but the problem persisted. A few years ago, the store manager got so many calls that he was forced to hire a phone company to ring the customers up, and they called the stores back in the store’s phone number. They listened to the customer, and then talked to the store manager and made the store aware of the problem.
We’ve seen a few similar scenarios before: the mall owner making a call from a phone company, or the stores manager calling the mall owner and then talking to the customer. But this time the store manager decided to actually call the malls manager. This is one of the few cases where the store manager is directly responsible for the problem.
