Shoplifting scheme downtown
I went into Ann Taylor on 13th and G this afternoon. While I was paying, the lady ringing me up received a phone call from what I’m assuming was another retail shop nearby, warning her that someone was going to come in to shoplift. Surely enough, they were right. A bulky B/M walked in and attempted but was then run out of the store by another employee. When I asked whether this was normal, the lady said that a man had come in on Sunday and taken everything off of the display tables. She also mentioned that they particularly target Ann Taylor because they don’t have a guard. Does anyone know anything about regular shoplifting groups that do this? What kind of market exists for buying stolen office lady clothes?
