Anyone lift from Zara?

Submitted by WavyJessa in Shoplifting

Hi friends,

I've been lifting for a long time but never used a magnet or detacher before, however I'm now considering buying a hook key for my local Zara because of the following reasons:

  • Dressing room never gives me a number, in fact they don't even count the items
  • Multiple exits on 2 floors with only one LP, often there is no one stationed at any exit
  • Store is always really busy and employees seem overwhelmed - lol

Am I missing something? It seems too easy, is there something else I should be worried about like cameras in the dressing rooms, or do they put something in the garment tag or price tag that would set off the towers?

Thanks :)

zara is pretty low budget. you are risking your freedom by committing a criminal act. aim for the stars and go for something better.

It's just tempting when you're an opportunist and you spot an easy target, lol. You make a good point though.

no i get it, i am just like you - if i see a opportunity i am going to take it, but im not going to do it out of desperation or greed, two things that are liable to get you caught.

Just a tip, i once brought a backpack in a Zara store and they made me press it against their change room desk where the assistant stands. They have a magnet detector behind there.

If it seems too easy it probably is. Fitting rooms are a great place to conceal merchandise. And I wouldn’t dare stop if the alarm goes off and I have stolen merchandise. When you get to the door, you need to make that commitment to go out that door, with the merchandise, no matter what happens. You will keep walking until you get out the door and to your car. And you won’t stop for any reason.

worse comes to worse, you ditch the merchandise and split but like drshoplifter said you need to make the commitment to make it out no matter what. if you get locked in what are you going to do?? at least you can flee if you make it outside and the chances of them getting you decreases the farther you get away obviously. it probably aint even worth the merchandise you got so just remember next time..

There shouldn't be cameras in the dressing rooms, that's borderline voyeurism.

Number 2: If you're concerned about hidden tags on the tags, then just remove the price tag and use whatever method. However if you happen to set off the alarms you literally just keep walking. The towers are borderline useless. They can't stop you just for the tower unless they see you conceal or rip a security tag off.

However, this doesn't mean play it smart then beep on your way out. In fact, remove every tag from the item even knowing how unuseful the towers are because if you beep on the way out you're drawing an extreme amount of attention to yourself and you're going to be watched closer the next time you come in.

I wish you luck on this lift.

I've checked the laws, a few states outlaw it but most allow it. They simply require the business to let the customers know they're being recorded

Good thing they're outlawed in my state, if they become legal ima just, put a thin layer of electrical tape over those pinhole cameras they have in those pinhole coathanger cameras, fuckin voyeurs it's ridiculous how that's legal

That's interesting info, I checked and my state does allow it but I don't recall ever seeing a sign saying that the dressing rooms are monitored by camera in any retail store I've been in.

Thanks, I would never in a million years stop if the alarms went off, and you're right that I should just remove all the tags anyway to be on the safe side :)

As a follow-up question, I'm curious where everyone here usually disposes of all the removed tags? On the floor in the dressing room? Put it in the pocket of another item and put that item back on the rack outside the dressing room?

Leaving it in the dressing room seems more logical to me because technically if they found the tags in another piece of clothing and wanted to go through the trouble, they could review footage until they saw me putting it back on the rack after leaving the dressing room.

I've never lifted clothes, so I'll leave that for someone else to answer, but leaving them in the dressing room sounds kinda sketch to me. If I were you I would take a lot of items and bury the ones you want in the middle of the stack, conceal the ones you want (after detagging) and put the tags inside the clothing you are returning to shelves. Specifically pants with pockets so, like,, they don't fall out of the right sleeve of a t-shirt, you know?

Lol. I’ll also bring in pants or jeans with me. Also a lot of clothes. Like 15(I’ll take like 3-4)

And for paper tags. I stuff them in pants

For metal tags. I clip them on something else. Because hey. Where else to put them?

For the clothes hangers. I’ll double hand the clothes and when I’m done. I’ll be a good samaritan and help put them back where I found them.

Is your Zara in a shopping mall or plaza?

It's technically in a mall, but the doors are street facing on a busy shopping street in a major city.

Lifting from that area is nice because as soon as you make it out the door it's easy to disappear into shopping crowds :)

I’ve lifted many items from Zara. Dressing rooms are hit or miss. If no one is attending, you’re golden. Otherwise, don’t get greedy.

Beware: All shoes have hidden sensors inside the sole. They are deactivated at the counter.
