From the Forum – Shoplifting at the Soviet Safeway in Dupont


Shoplifting at the Soviet Safeway in Dupont:

“I went to Safeway to find a neighborhood friend completely flabbergasted. Apparently she watched a Safeway employee talk to several men outside who generally hang out. The employee went back inside and basically turned an eye as his “friends” made off with hands full of items.

My friend witnessed this and was completely outraged that so many employees did absolutely nothing, and that one of the Safeway employees knew and possibly aided in this ransack.

My friend talked to several employees who basically said that they can’t do anything- they aren’t security and past attempts to have security were apparently balked by customers. So now they just let this happen on a seemingly regular basis.

I’m left to think that we are the ones who are paying in increased prices for this kind of theft. If the entire staff is complacent is it stupid to call the cops to investigate?”
