I know that in the United States and in other cities here in Australia it definitely is but this particular store, and the others in the state (I did a bunch of research today) do not seem to tag everything. Most items I've come across under $50 (which is most items) do not set off alarms. I just spent probably an hour in a store (not lifting) looking for tags on items and I literally could not find one item under 50 dollars that had a security tag. On top of that, only like 3 people working in this massive, two story store, with two unmanned exits, in peak hour shopping, absolutely insane, literally no lp. Cameras are really slack as well, and all the stores I've been to have an incredible amount of blind spots. That being said, these are pretty wealthy areas and uni isn't exactly high end so I don't think that they experience a great deal of shrinkage and given that these are really busy shopping centers I am getting the sense that anything under a seriously significant amount they'd probably just write off.

My curiosity is the non iron dress shirts though. Some are put out on hangars, so they're easy to inspect, but in order to walk out with a few I'd need to take the ones that are folded and have the plastic in the collar for structure. Not sure if/where those would be tagged, but I'm going to get one past the gates in a few days to see if it sets off the alarm. If it doesn't, I'm going to burn a store as far away as possible and take a good few.

It's interesting that I've only just started lifting and I'm doing quite large walkouts in the multi hundreds, but I am putting the leg work in before I lift. My eggs are all in a row before I execute. Finding I have quite a talent for this and the right mindset because when the time comes I'm completely unfazed. Fascinating time in my life. Lol.

Yeah, I am in the US. I am going to go into a store today and take a look and report what I see.
