Preferably you'd have a way to prevent the alarms - either by booster bag or removing the tags. If that's not possible for you, then I'd definitely BOOK IT* if you have a pack full of merch.

**By "BOOK IT" I don't mean going into a mad sprint as soon as the alarm sounds. A brisk walking pace would be better so it's not obvious you took something.

I see abandoned carts all the time at my local wally-mart. Maybe they're fellow lifters; maybe they forgot about something important and ran off.

While the staff may hate them for taking a bunch of stuff they didn't buy, I'm doubtful that they suspect anything. They're too angry at themselves for being in thaf job to think about it.

To be fair, there are still methods where you could get an image to become clearer.

Either having the initial resolution big enough to be able to zoom in and still have a clear picture. Or by smoothing/sharpening an image that's just slightly too rough to read.

Then again, unless they have proof of you taking thousands in merchandise, I doubt that they'd ever go to such lengths.

Being calm and chilled out is the #1 piece of advice when around other people and potential LP.

As for sneaking items out (if you can't conceal them on your body) my favorite method is using fake packaging, like a plastic bag from a previous visit or a box and reciept of something you've already bought.

All I can offer is something pretty superficial: Make ABSOLUTELY sure there's no RFID stickers on what you're taking.

Places usually have it just behind the cover, but I remember seeing some that are stuck in a random page

If your shop is like the one near me - having a Starbucks inside - then consider bagging your stuff and chilling out there for a while. Any LP or camera watchers that might've been eyeing you will most likely forget and ignore you after some time.
