What if i theoretically came across some current/actively used employee aprons from a certain orange hardware store? Brand new and untouched also.

Is there anything I could do with them, are they of any value to lifters?

I've thought about trying something like this but when I got to looking into thing's a little more I found out that employee theft is actually higher than customer theft and one part the LP job is stopping employee shrink. I wad was going give it a try during Black Friday this yr but the rona happen. I think a really busy day at a location miles from home wld be a time it cld payoff 🤷🏽‍♂️

Good point. I wonder if the fact that a bunch of new employees are being hired due to the busy season would help/hurt the chances of being tagged by LP.

Another thing I think wld work well with this would be having a partner arrive totally separate from u then load one those flat carts up and pretend I'm just random employee helping a customer load his thing's. Hell maybe even have a decent size receipt in hand 🤔 it's for sure worth looking into

This is not 100% factual. Inside shrink is higher than external but it is not due to internal theft. Inventory screw ups carry the highest percentage. That would be someone at the dock who did not sign off on every pallet. Someone did a store to store transfer and did not log the merchandise leaving or the store receiving. In the end it is mistakes in inventory that account for high internals because it is an employee who makes the mistake.

This will all depend on timing. This is not a new trick and depending on the location the employees could be tight with each other, even the new hires and you will immediately stand out.

If I were going to pull this off I would use a companion who goes in and loads up a flat cart. You walk in through the entrance door with some rope or other material that gives the impression you are there just in time to help the customer. Ensure your companion has a receipt. You take the receipt, look at the items on the flat pack, give the receipt back, and 'assist' the customer with loading.

The motions of looking at the receipt are just the motions in case anyone else is watching. You suddenly look like you belong because you are 'greeting' the customer. Others on the outside see this as challenge and response. For that split moment almost no one is going to ask you a question nor will they ask the customer for their receipt again.

I advise leaving the store after your partner as left the parking lot.

I ‘found’ a red vest from a certain home improvement store and have successfully pulled off a couple big pulls, a couple hundred dollars in a cart wheeled out in broad daylight.

I had the vest under my jacket, filled the cart with what i wanted, then at the last minute, put it on and went out the door. On another note, i DID get stopped at one store, I’m guessing it was a manager, supervisor or LP? And he just grabbed the cart as i was on the way out the door. He asked for the vest and i told him to f*ck off and briskly walked away! I had taken precautions like parking far off and wearing a disguise, but that store is a no go zone now.

To make a long story short, if you are brave enough to wear an employee apron, the common wage slaves won’t question you, managers, supervisors, and lp will confront you.
