At my uniqlo it is very easy to shoplift, it is the store I shoplift the most because there is no hard tag you just have to rip off the cardboard tag with the price like this. A few years ago there were still hard tags so it might depend on the store. If there are no hard tag it is very easy you can rip them off without going to the fitting room if your store is big enough. I hide the tags under a pile of ugly things and I just walkout (super easy). I read that these tags can be partially teared to stop working but I prefer to be sure that it won't ring even if in my country there is nobody to stop me if it does.

Are you sure those tags have something inside them?

100% sure I wanted to verify once and I bought a cheap t shirt so I went to checkout and then I replaced the paid t shirt by the exact same but taken from the shelves and it set off the gate, I waited for a vendor that checked my ticket and ripped off this tag and said I can go bc technically I bought it. Maybe some of them don't work but they are supposed to be deactivated at checkout. It is so easy to rip them off and hide them that I prefer to do it and not take risks. Are the tags like this at your uniqlo store or are they hard tags?

I lifted from there quite a few times and I never took off the tag lol! I never set off the alarm too. Maybe they just didn’t activate them because I doubt they’re trying to case build me, the felony limit here is quite high. They’re not going to wait for me to lift enough $30 shirts to reach the thousands lol?! My friends friend worked there and said they don’t put hard tags on items under like $50 or something. She said lots of people shoplift there because they’re always finding the ripped off tags in the corners lmao

When I was last there, I saw an employee waving around a beeping scanner to - what I'm assuming was- taking stock of inventory. I'm pretty sure it's just the tags on the price tags they use.

Usually with fast fashion, tags are not really sewn in to the garment. But always check first and never assume.
