Bad economy = increased shoplifting

1/2/2009:

5 finger discounts abound

We all know our economy is tanking (and some suspect it will only get worse).

One thing I’ve noticed monitoring the Hoboken411 Live Police and Action Channel – is the increase in shoplifting calls. For example, at one point in-between Christmas and New Years – there were not one, not two but THREE simultaneous shoplifters over at the A&P Fresh Market on Clinton Street.

I wonder how many of these shoplifters are “rookies” that are also property taxpayers? Haha!

Unfortunately, in my opinion it will only get worse as the economy continues to slide downward. On a positive note, more can be spent on retail security to provide employment. Just a thought 💡

You can’t by Christmas gifts with Food Stamps. Xbox does not qualify. Additionally, Christmas is at the end of the month. If it was on the 1st of the month sales would be shooting up just like the junkies in the projects.
