Clothing will often have an RFID tag sewn into a seam. If you find a label like this:

then that is what set off the alarm.

These tags have to be de-activated by the cashier when you are paying :(

Or cut out / cut through by you when you are stealing :)

My nephew fills shelves for a certain supermarket chain to help pay his way through college. They have no LP and the only cameras are watching the cash registers. The shelf-fillers are supposed to watch out for theft but they are too poorly paid to care. He told me they never stop someone they see lifting, they're more likely to help them steal stuff, especially if it's another student .....

No, that's BS. Those mega-companies have shrinkage budgeted in.

My nephew works parttime for a certain large supermarket chain to help pay his way through college. They have never gotten rid of anyone because of people shoplifting. My nephew and most of his colleagues will never challenge someone they see lifting. A lot of them steal stuff themselves or will help a friend with concealing etc.......
