Perfect. but don't waste your time on the kitchen aid mixer, so many other good things of higher value that are much smaller and lighter. Just saying.

Always act confident and not surprised the alarms when off - happens all the time in stores and many ppl are numb to it. Act as though u assumed it was for someone else , because clearly you paid for your stuff lol. Seem borderline offended, and that it's just an inconvenience for u to have to come back in just to have them demagnetize their bullshit tag. You don't have time for nonsense .

Crafty! Lol..but not smart... Only problem is when they scan your gift receipt, it'll say you've already returned that item for a refund within their system lol. Doesn't matter if it's a gift receipt or the original, the transaction id# is going to be the same and unique to that specific sale, meaning they'll see you already returned it and will likely try and hem u up knowing without a doubt that you're engaged in return fraud lol... I def can't recommend it bud

Thanks for the brain pickin!

I'm curious on a couple things.. first off, how actively do you monitor consumables like otc meds, baby formula, teeth whitening strips, diabetic test strips, etc.?

What type of theft deterrent equipment does your store use on products (RFID, EAS, 2alarm/spider-wrap, 3alarn, alpha, AM tags, etc), and what specifics can you share with us about them? Have you had many encounters with lifters utilizing s3 keys and other magnets for removing security tags? Do you normally deal with homeless, junkies, and kids, or do you actually have professional boosters and true orc individuals come through your store?

Are you located in a rural area or metropolitan area? Aside from monitoring specific behaviors, tendencies, appearances, etc., what specific products do you actively monitor in an attempt to curb theft?

Last thing, what's the biggest "face palm" story you can share with us where your company basically just dropped the ball in one form or another which resulted in easy pickins for one of us? Lol.

Thanks, cheers, ..from the other side of the line drawn in the sand ;-)

PS, I live in a state where it is illegal for you to put hands on me, even if you suspect I've concealed merchandise. The most you can do is secure the cart and ask me to come to the office, or come back inside if I've crossed the doors. Unfortunately, you'd have to just watch us walk away if we chose to do so, which im sure is extremely frustrating for them. They can follow, try and get license plate numbers to wtv but it's still a useless.slap in the face.

Shit, the Cricut Maker has been the hit for me lately.... MSRP $394, people eat them up for 300-350 all day long! Screw the craft stores for the big stuff buddy, stick to supplies and stupid shit there. I get my Cricuts from Wally's... S3 key for the spider wrap and walkout.. easy peasy. ...in fact I'm starting to run out of Wally's to get them from lol.. been to all 5 stores within 60mile radius. Last one I went to had two makers on the shelf so we snagged both of them knowing we were running out of stores to lift them from.. =/ sad day because they were an easy lift and sold hella quick for good money.. now gotta hunt out a similar comeup
