Black Friday is certainly the best day to lift.

EVERYONE 1 thinks you're in there for a bargain, no security following u around unless you look extremely shady and standout. Security are usually dealing with the typical fights people have about losing a product and the safety of others. If its a store with no LP then its a free for all imo.

I've worked in retail b4 on black friday. Its ok to just walk out with leaving tags on if you want, with the towers sounding, when you have multiple people walking in and out (no 1s gonna be able to do anything and pinpoint you) and my manager once appointed me to the entrance of the store with a detagger because the counter staff are much more likely to forget to detag something on a sales day as people buy in huge bulks .

For clothes shops, Stockroom staff dont have time to tag clothes so its a free for all for someone who doesnt have a detagger as you always find many clothes with no tags.

Just dont get too greedy or cocky.

I'm pretty sure I read something about Steve Jobs not wanting any towers or LP at his stores.

Apple stores are a free for all but dont get too cocky and I've seen plenty of videos online of their staff being very dedictated to stopping lifters, putting them to the ground and calling the cops.

Good work on the lift but dont go back in such a short period, the thing about lifting shoes the "pretend to try on/need another size" way is you're guaranteed to get detected. And Im sure you sweeped some expensive ass ones as well. At least wait a month or two mate. .

Fuck the goverment, its that simple. I've also worked in retail before and people underestimate how horrible it is and the wage you get for it (also, its a lot harder than people think as well).

You from UK as well? I was wandering around the shop and noticed how over the top the fitting room staff were. TK Maxx is also a really weird shop, I was looking around the clothes but they were all 50 quid and less then randomly i came across a 300 pound coat out of no where (felony to lift that here). There are some absolute gems in that shop, you just gotta keep your eye out for them and decide whether its worth the risk or not. I dont have a detagger yet so I couldnt do anything.

Hiya noticed your from the uk, thinking about picking this up. Has it actually ever activated the front alarm before?

and what do you do with the tags when you've finished with them (or do they not activate the alarm once they're detagged?). Also, how loud is the detagging process (i used to work at a clothing retailer and it made a loudish clipping noise) and what shops have you used it at?
