Target’s $1.2 Billion Loss: The War Against Organized Retail Crime

YouTube player

In a world where shoplifting has become as commonplace as parking violations, major retailers are reeling. Target has now joined the unfortunate club of retailers resorting to desperate measures to curb losses, following in the footsteps of Walmart’s mass store closure strategy. Last year alone, Target’s losses, primarily due to organized retail crime, are estimated at a staggering $1.2 billion. The grand irony here is the store’s moniker itself – Target has become, well, quite a target.

Shoplifters are no longer the solitary bandits of yesteryear. They are organized, and they are brazen. They have aced the art of ‘live free, steal hard.’ A chunky profit from a day’s petty theft easily funds the next drug fix, making this lifestyle lucrative for some, who seem to be having a merry ride on the lawlessness express. And yes, you and I, the taxpayers, are the not-so-secret benefactors of this felonious fiesta. But let’s not forget the innocent bystanders who just want their everyday groceries and are now wandering the food deserts left behind by store closures.

So, what’s next for Target? The company’s CEO, Brian Cornell, has hinted at impending changes, but hasn’t let the cat out of the bag just yet. Are more store closures on the horizon? One can’t help but speculate. In the meantime, while violent crime rates and drug abuse figures climb higher, we find ourselves amidst an escalating war between big-box retailers and the audacious foot soldiers of organized retail crime. Welcome to America, folks, where the targets are ripe for the picking and the shoplifters are having a field day.
