Wait until they’re helping another customer.

FYI there is a lot of footage on YouTube with people stealing from Sunglass Hut because people like to resell expensive sunglasses. If you have a department store with a Sunglass Hut section you could try there instead.

So do you think it was a coincidence that I didn’t beep at UO? Because both the other times I or someone else has tried it the waist stash didn’t block the signals. Maybe I should try it again at a low-risk store...

I don’t know if Hudson Bay LP prefer to watch on floor or on cam but assume all cams are real... for a place that carries so much high end stuff it has to be real because what if there’s a robbery or something.

Shoppers has LP, especially in the mall ones. I prefer Rexall which I don’t think has LP since it’s always so quiet in every location I’ve been to.

Indigo I heard has LP but I’ve gotten away with a lot.

Roots, I don’t think they have LP but where I live (not a small town either) there’s a crime posting website and it doesn’t include shoplifters except from Roots. So do with that what you will.

I’ve never lifted at Canadian Tire but apparently they reserve the right to check your bags and they have a guy standing right near the exit; my friend said she’s seen armed guards but that was around the holidays.

Loblaws has LP but it’s still possible to lift there if you’re not sus.

Winners has plainclothes confirmed by someone in the old subreddit, I’ve heard some caught stories there too. Might be the same with Marshall’s. I believe they walk on floor rather than watch cams.

If you’re into girly stuff at all Ardene and Aritzia are good places with no LP. In fact Aritzia was my first lift. They have some Adidas stuff there too.

Can’t think of any more but I hope this helps! If any other Canadian reads this and wants to chime in feel free to :)

Lol thanks, I do try to contribute whenever I can :P

I’ve tried it once (with one item) and I feel like if it’s true that LP doesn’t watch the line, it would be really nice to pair it with sleight of hand tricks since other customers are all you’re worrying about. There are no blindspots at Sephora so if you have to do sleight of hand and crowd conceal, why not do it in a place where there’s no LP watching?

Also I’ve been told that some LP require the lifter to “leave without the intent to pay” which is why they stop watching when you get in line. It shows the intent to pay so they might stop wasting their time on you.

What about the cash registers? I read somewhere that the cash registers are considered the “point of sale” so if you pass it it means you’ve stolen something.

If that’s not the case you’re technically not stealing if you go to the in-store McDonalds with merchandise in your bag, is it?

Never done it before but one tip: Doing the fake phone call method may potentially save your life. You’ll feel stupid as fuck doing it but one time I beeped out of Walmart and I didn’t notice there was a yellow vest old guy sitting at the side of the entrance. He didn’t budge because I was chattering away on the phone.

Also obviously, don’t leave where there’s a yellow vest, and use a receipt from one of your past purchases with the logo visible. I do small grocery walkouts and nobody wants to be that guy stopping a customer who clearly has a receipt.

Well they aren’t actual police officers, but they’re not dressed like mall security either. Probably store security is the best word for them, so yea basically LP.

I’m also thinking of wearing it under my clothes and carrying a small crossbody purse so if the alarm goes off I’m nobody to worry about. The entrance is wide so chances are other people will be walking out. If they do decide to come for me I’ll flash the inside of my small purse and leave.
