Scope out all the best buys around you. It sounds like some of them are way easier than others from what I’ve read on here. I think they’re all kinda hard difficulty where I am though. Lots and lots of sales assistants, and newer buildings so tonnes of cameras, unsure if they’re manned but I’m assuming so since this store carries pretty $$$ things.

I think just diff wigs, hat styles, and different styles of glasses will work. Bald is kind of obvi so I think a wig or hat would be important.

Think preppy, geeky, or artistic style, or polished but cool? Idk. Aliexpress is amazing lmao.

Most of your questions are easily answered by yourself by checking out your store, which I highly recommend.

However ime, lp varies greatly from store to store. Some stores have security guards standing right at the entrance while others appear to not have lp.

In my area they use magnet tags so get a golf detacher.

Idk it sounds like you need to do more research here. Just a tip if you’re not going to do more research- if they catch you, run for it don’t go into the back.

I wouldn’t risk it. The ticket to go in is so $$ and your family would find out if you got caught, and you might ruin the vacation. You’d prob be kicked out, maybe banned? If you must, do it at the end of the last day IMO.

It sounds like you’re thinking of making stickers to replace barcodes? Maybe?

I don’t think they’ll be like, “search this guys house for this shirt he was wearing!”

I mean the masks are amazing for us and a must now, but you deliberately dressing cheap sounds like lp would watch you even more? So what do you do, just hold the stuff you’re lifting and leave?

I feel like at such a high number like 12 stores, all it takes is one extra vigilant employee to send out a mass PSA even without knowing other stores were hit already? But I don’t know how lp works so

Maybe if you had a vastly diff disguise every four shops or something?

This was such a bad idea. They have all your info. Damn. Even if you get away with it, it was extremely high risk for such a low payoff. Did you not read the beginners guide that someone kindly wrote for here? Hope it works out for you

I’m sooooo sorry this happened to you 😭😭😭 That’s crazy they beat you… you took such petty things… I’m crying for you, that’s traumatising

At least you didn’t get any police records.. it sounds like that could really ruin your life.

I feel terrible and obviously I’m privileged to say maybe it’s not worth it to steal in your country, but maybe you’re doing it out of true necessity. 😭😭😭 I’m sorry

Wow! Was there anything/ any incident in the news lately? If there was maybe they’re just putting these up for show to make customers feel ‘safe’. Otherwise that is so wild, it’s not like they’re guarding some very high value stuff or money transportation.

Don’t they have changing rooms? Why didn’t you go try on some clothes and conceal a few, leaving the rest? I never have a plan tbh I go there and ‘shop’ like a normal person. Who has time to pick out what you want one trip and return for the stuff again??

Sorry this happened to you, luckily you didn’t get anything worst, it’ll suck when you can’t go to the mall with your friends? Yikes.

I kind of think it was way past your “gut feelings” when they’re blatantly onto you lmao

No… I’m sure all the employees know what you look like. So if you MUST, go diff times AND DISGUISE like 100% need a realistic wig and make your face look diff. Which doesn’t seem worth it just to lift at a cvs. I don’t think you should even go back to buy things legit because it’ll just refresh their memory and add the the time you won’t be able to return.

There’s sooo much info in this forum it’s wild. Just look back. If you don’t have time, short and simple tips: dress clean business casual. Look confident. See if it’s possible to do walk outs at your supermarket (you’ll have to search it up here and read. Some things that could happen eg, maybe the cart locks at the doors). Go to more affluent area market. Maybe use reusable bags.

I worry they’ll check back to those who set the alarm off with the security cam and then follow that person. Time consuming, but if they had large shrink maybe they would do that.

I try to remove all the tags before crossing the towers but a few times it rang anyways, once I made a shocked expression and an employee just looked at me and said “you can just go” haha. No one has stopped me yet, but I time my exits to another shopper sometimes and don’t really stop even if it rings. Also I try to exit when no sales associates are around.
