its common in most countries that small electronic items lik earphones are often tagged, because they are easily lifted, and hence they will either be locked up or tagged. i have notice target, now completely locks up all earphones, headphones, or similar even the cheap ones i bought for 5USD. high theft items are usually concealable. toiletries are often monitored and tag heavily for same reason, like toothbrushes both electronic and not, tooth paste, deodorants,,,,etc.

you wont get an iphone at all, the associate will have to hand it to you, and you have to buy it, they wont let it out of sight. also even if you somehow steal it, it will be blacklisted from all carriers in the USA, so its essentially useless.

are you selling electronics and clothes they gain enough profit to afford food. trader joes have no cameras, but there really isnt blind spots either, because theres always so much people there. i go to suburbans and inner city ones, but these usually have security guards though. Both whole foods and trader joes. However since some of these have 1 or more entrances, 1 of them is often unguarded. even with security, they usually only stand near the entrance, you can conceal before you even exit the store

Does UK have laws, that allow apprehensions by any means, the friend has a pretty weak case, since she is stealing. if she does have case, you should probably file a lawsuit, or something for compensation. It is very excessive if it is a non-violent situation, the security might try to spin that your friend was being physically violent, and he responded in kind. hopefully witness can come foward with evidence.

not really cool to steal from a single owner franchise. anyways, convenient owners, and gas station owners are alot more suspicious of shoplifter, because they regurlarly are the ones getting robbed, so most are usually armed aswell. and they already known young people that dint drive a car just came in, is there to steal.

i can tell you they arnt doing well, a couple of cvs opened a few years ago, got shut down, because the lack of customers, they cant just compete with walgreens, since i know theres always customers at walgreens all the time. the many times ive went into a cvs, thats not in inner city, is completely deserted, maybe 0-3 people are in in there at any one time. Inner city, downtown is a little different more foot traffic, more peopleshopping in that area.The place had security guards, and very SUSPICIOUS employees.

the police has to subpeona or ask for your records in order to track you down.in a small town i can see this happening, due to the police having nothing else to do. in a big city,unlikey to even calling,but they will probably make a profile of you, or not.
