I've been thinking about using the self-checkout lanes to pretend scan an item I intend to lift and pass it over the de-magnetizer to deactivate potential tags on the inside. Does this seem like a feasible plan? What potential pitfalls could there be? I imagine cashiers would be double on the lookout if they notice you have a high shrink item.

I am thrilled to find this place and your post after r/shoplifting was banned. I've been eye balling one of those ridiculously expensive electronic toothbrushes from Walmart. Some are not spider wrapped. Almost concealed one today, but I backed out. Didn't feel right.

Anyone here have any clue if there are sensors inside the boxes? They're a rip to open box so it's not like employees can put one in after they're delivered.
