You know what, as long as they didn't get any information on you, I'd say don't stress at all. Goodluck.

I mean people tend not to reply when they don't have an answer and you are asking for help from people who have knowledge in what you're asking for so that's probably why you got no replies. I don't really do returns, I've done it a few times but maybe that's because it's quite hard without a receipt

Well it's a convenience store so most likely privately owned and for that reason even small losses will catch their attention and if they do realise they are missing something they will probably check the camera's so I suggest going and lifting from big supermarkets as small losses are unnoticeable unless added up and you have less chance of getting spotted and there are multiple techniques on this forum for supermarkets.

I like that first rule because its so true, the second you walk in with a backpack you will already be a target for LP,you could take advantage of it by asking a friend to act suspicious with the backpack while you do the actual lifting and it could work that way and rule number five is also a very good one, the more time you spend in a store the higher the chance you will be noticed. My tip: get used to concealing very quickly because thats your best bet.

Well here is what I done for my first time two years ago, First before I entered the store I took long deep breaths and I did this so I wouldn't shake and I would remain calm, next thing is don't walk about cluelessly, big indicator that you are gonna do something wrong. What I did was I got a bag from another store and just put something in it and when i was inside the store, I would peel the tag off and then just get to a blindside and drop it in, you gotta do the drop in super smooth with no mistakes but it worked a charm, you can put it in your pocket but also conceal somewhere where nobody can see you and yeah thats about all I have to say, good luck.

I used to do this but carrying any bag into a store is a little more risky and so most people avoid it but if you go at a busy time or a school time where students finish(its a sunday) then it would work better but yeah carrying in a backpack is risky. What i would recommend taking is a disposable plastic bag from a store nearby and fill it up a bit so they think that you just got done shopping at another store and that will work better and you have a higher chance of getting away.

Hey maybe it will work i didn't say it wouldn't but if someone is watching you and they see you have an item one second and you don't have it the other then it might not go well but apart from that its not a bad plan.

And what happens if they see you put said item into the box? ALSO the whole point of lifting is to get as little attention to you as possible but having a pizza box will catch a few people staring and it might work with a hoodie on top but if someone is doing their job it probably won't go nicely to be honest, also have you tried this yourself?

Right about this question,

Where i live (not from the US), we actually have rf gates at the bathrooms so if you took an item with a tag on it the gate alarm would go off so its not really a possibility here, the problem with this is it may attract attention and everyone knows you need to divert as much attention as you can from yourself and so for myself I wouldn't do it but it could work with smaller non tagged items that won't set the gate off.

To answer your other statement, you will "fold and dispose" the packages is not a good idea my friend especially if the alarm has been set off because IF they do keep an eye on you, they will see that you went into the bathroom with an item and came out with nothing on you which definitely raises suspicion and they MAY search the bins if the value was high enough.

I'd advise that if you do use the bathroom idea, use small items and if you don't have gates at your bathroom then be careful and make sure they don't see what you take in there, good luck.

Idk about this, she did say she went out without incident so that's an indicator things went well, and OP: was anyone looking at you in any way or in a way that looked like they knew what you did, if not you got away and you are most likely fine but yeah stay away from the store for a bit.
