The LP Industry's #1 News Source - Informing, Educating and Instilling a Sense of Community

Facebook Twitter Linkedin

News Brief - Sponsored by WG Security Products



Drew Brennan was named Senior Director of Asset Protection Administration for Hudson's Bay Company.
  Before he took this new role, Drew was the Executive Director of Loss Prevention and Facilities for David Yurman. He has over fifteen years of experience in executive level loss prevention leadership positions at such retailers as Harry Winston where he was a Global Director of Security and at Tiffany & Co. as a Regional Security Director. He has also been an Investigator for Bloomingdale's and Nordstrom and was part of the security team at Bradlees. Congratulations Drew!


From war zone to department store - Veteran continues mission with Bloomingdale's Loss Prevention  Gardea Christian spent three tours of duty as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan. He hadn't even thought of the possibility of retail until a recruiter and fellow veteran suggested Bloomingdales, which happened to be looking for someone just like him. "We really wanted to focus on bringing veterans into our organization in leadership roles that would help them transition out of the military and give us strong leaders on our sales floors, in our stores," said Melanie Napolitano, Bloomingdales director of central support recruitment and development. Christian was hired as a loss prevention manager. There seems to be a big difference between watching out for enemies in a mountainous war zone and securing people and merchandise in a high-end department store. But Christian sees a common thread. "That's what we do here [at Bloomingdales], we operate ensuring that safety is number one and then, you know, making sure that people are secure," said Christian. Finding that sense of mission, and the satisfaction that comes with it, is key to welcoming veterans back into civilian life - not just getting any old job. cbsnews.com

Veterans in retail: An REI career story
As director of operations at REI's distribution center in Washington State, Tom Sydnor relies on many of the skills he learned in the military: leadership, accountability and self-motivation. Whether the focus is supply chain infrastructure, technology, loss prevention or management, a career in retail can offer veterans boundless opportunities. "I think an individual with a military background can be very comfortable here and still continue to grow," Sydnor says. Retailers including Walmart, Amazon, The Home Depot and Sears have made ambitious commitments to hire returning veterans. And at Retail's BIG Show in January, Disney Director of Veterans Initiatives Kevin Preston will talk about how his company has worked successfully to include veterans in its hiring strategy and how other retailers can implement similar programs. nrf.com

We want to thank all of our Veterans and active duty military!
Happy Veteran's Day!


Neiman Marcus Names First Chief Information Security Officer in wake of January data breach - Are we seeing a trend here?  Luxury retailer Neiman Marcus Group Inc. has named Sarah Hendrickson as its first chief information security officer. Ms. Hendrickson joins the Texas-based retailer from Children's Medical Center of Dallas, where she also served as CISO. She has held IT security positions at Dell Inc. and J.C. Penney Co. Neiman Marcus announced a data breach in January, shortly after Target Corp. discovered 40 million credit cards had been compromised during peak holiday shopping. A statement from CEO Karen Katz on Neiman Marcus' website said malware clandestinely installed on the company's system attempted to scrape payment card data from July 16 to Oct. 30 last year, potentially affecting 350,000 credit and debit cards. wsj.com

Data breaches force new strategy for security execs, according to report
Recent high-profile data breaches have clearly spooked a lot of companies, many of which expect to face cyber threats in the coming year. And security executives are spending more time advising senior executives and other top business decision makers at their organization on security-related matters. Those are among the findings of CSO's annual State of the CSO report, which surveyed 366 security professionals online in August and September 2014. About half of the survey respondents say their organizations have had to reevaluate their information security standards as a result of recent well-publicized attacks. Among the organizations surveyed, 37% say they expect to face a slew of cyber threats from outside the organization. csoonline.com

Store Managers, Assistant Managers Challenging Retailers on Overtime Pay - Lawsuits on the Rise  Retailers are facing a growing onslaught of lawsuits from current and former managers and assistant managers who are claiming their employers should have paid them for overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The managers assert that much of the work managers and assistant managers do is not truly managerial and, therefore under the FLSA, they should not be exempt from receiving overtime pay for any time worked over 40 hours in a given week. By and large, the managers have prevailed in these suits because many of their duties also included such manual labor as stocking shelves, cashier work, cleaning up spills, etc. Frequently, managers of retail establishments are not paid overtime, yet are required to perform the duties of hourly workers. An employer found liable under the FLSA must pay back pay, plus liquidated damages, consisting of 100% of the back pay award, and attorney fees. Some states, like New York, add additional liquidated damages to the award under state law. Considering that such claims may be brought as a class action containing numerous plaintiffs, the potential damage awards are enormous. The number of costly FLSA lawsuits and settlements paid by retailers is growing. Recently, TD Bank agreed to settle an action for $9.9 million for failure to pay its assistant managers overtime wages. Actions have been brought against Dunham's Sports; a Michigan-based chain, and the National Cracker Barrel restaurant chain for failure to pay assistant managers overtime. In both instances, the assistant managers claimed that they spent a majority of their time performing non-managerial duties. chainstoreage.com

Charney investigation costs American Apparel $5.3 million
American Apparel, a beleaguered retailer still wincing from a boardroom struggle over the summer, said sales fell 5 percent in the third quarter and losses grew - dragged down in no small part by its own investigation of the behavior of Dov Charney, who was fired as chief executive in June. The company, which has been without a chief executive ever since, reported a net loss of $19.2 million, or 11 cents a share, most of which was nonrecurring costs, including $5.3 million in legal and other costs connected to Mr. Charney's departure. nytimes.com

O'Reilly Automotive Subpoenaed Over Waste Disposal In California
O'Reilly Automotive Inc. is under investigation in California for potential hazardous waste violations, the auto parts chain said Friday in a securities filing, a week after rival AutoZone Inc. revealed it was targeted in a similar probe. The Alameda County district attorney's office, joined by state environmental regulators, sent a subpoena to the Springfield, Missouri-based company seeking documents on its "handling, storage and disposal" of hazardous waste, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing. law360.com

Hackers using hotel Wi-Fi to infect corporate executives' computers  
Corporate executives traveling in Asia may need to be extra cautions the next time they connect to a hotel's Wi-Fi network -- that is, if they haven't already been hacked. Over the last four years, malicious hackers have been stealing data from company executives while they stay in luxury hotels in an attack known as "Darkhotel," security research firm Kaspersky Lab revealed on Monday. The hackers gain access to executives' computers when they connect to a hotel's wireless Internet, the report said, though no specific hotels are named. With corporate executives often the target of Darkhotel, the goal appears to be stealing sensitive corporate information or gaining access to a corporate networks. The majority of the attacks are happening in Japan, Taiwan, China, Russia and South Korea, according to the report, with top executives from the US and Asia among the recent targets. cnet.com

Using 'Cloud Computing' to fight petty crime - How technology can foster retailer collaboration  A former District Attorney, Lohra Miller, CEO and founder of loss prevention technology company Turning Point Justice (TPJ), is not your typical technology visionary. Over the decades, she found that prosecuting petty crimes consumed significant public resources across law enforcement and the court system. With budgets shrinking across the country, Ms. Miller began researching alternatives for handling misdemeanor offenders while streamlining efficiency, which led her to build a solution in the cloud. "The store is the first touch point with a shoplifter," said Ms. Miller. "When you examine the processes that happen when a retailer catches someone shoplifting, you realize that identifying the detainee, collecting evidence, calculating the damage, and preparing better incident reports for everyone can be much more easily accomplished with cloud computing to remove the expensive, time-consuming burden of administration from police officers." turningpointjustice.com

Some California Police agencies already adhering to Prop. 47 changes
Sacramento County Sheriff's Department announced it had begun a review of 420 suspects in its jails and subsequently determined that 50 of them were eligible for misdemeanor rather than felony charges, those 50 were released last week. Some local law enforcement agencies already have begun implementing Proposition 47 - the initiative voters adopted last week that reduces criminal penalties for some drug and property crimes - with officers in Sacramento citing rather than arresting some suspects and the Sacramento County sheriff releasing 50 suspects whose alleged crimes suddenly have been shifted from felonies to misdemeanors. sacbee.com

Retail Imports Set Records Despite Continuing West Coast Port Issues
Import cargo volume at the nation's major retail container ports is expected to slow down this month following record levels seen in September and October as retailers rushed to bring merchandise into the country ahead of a possible shutdown of West Coast ports, according to the monthly Global Port Tracker report released today by the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates. Import volume at U.S. ports covered by the Global Port Tracker report is expected to total 1.4 million containers this month, down from 1.59 million each in September and October, a number that broke the previous monthly high of 1.52 million set in August. Cargo volume has been well above average each month since spring as retailers have imported merchandise early in case of any disruption on the docks. nrf.com latimes.com

Retailers doubling down on last-minute order fulfillment - 'Shipping Speed' will be the holiday differentiator  Forrester predicts that holiday e-commerce sales will increase 13% to $89 billion this year and competition is likely to be fierce. With free shipping increasingly expected, the differentiator this holiday season may come down to shipping speed. In fact, according to a new Kurt Salmon survey of 100 retail brands, retailers will reduce their processing and shipping time frames for multi-item orders by almost two days this holiday season. On average, it took retailers eight days to get orders into the hands of shoppers last year, with 3.4 days to process and 4.6 days to ship. This year, retailers are looking to cut down processing time by one day, and shipping time by nearly one day, to bring the total order fulfillment time down to 6.1 days. businesswire.com

Study: Retailers will apply Big Data analytics on front end
Analytics will be applied in front-end as well as back-end applications in retail. According to a new study from Frost & Sullivan, the aim of every retailer is to integrate data from multiple channels to provide an omnichannel experience for the customer. Processing data real-time and using predictive modelling provide actionable insights that help acquire new customers and retain existing ones. In fact, Frost & Sullivan says the combination of descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics will enable retailers to keep track of their business at a macro level and further their prospects at the micro level. chainstoreage.com

Association for Retail Technology Standards announces most significant updates to Data Model Standards in 10 years  The Association for Retail Technology Standards, a division of the National Retail Federation, announced today the approval of the ARTS Operational Data Model version 7.0, and the ARTS Data Warehouse Model 3.0. The ARTS Operational Data Model is a retail-specific roadmap that allows a company to plan how it organizes and uses its transaction data. Additionally, it offers a basis for building integrated applications or selecting off-the-shelf retail solutions, and for helping application developers and analysts understand retail business principles and terminology. "ARTS released its very first version of the Data Model for Retail in 1994," said Tom Litchford, vice president of retail technologies for NRF. "Today's release of the updated models represents the most significant expansions to both models in over 10 years.

Cyberattacks aren't stopping anytime soon
By 2025, there will be a major cyberattack that causes widespread harm and creates tens of billions of dollars in damages. Or maybe there won't be. It depends who you ask. There's little consensus as to what form the next wave of cyberattacks will take, finds a new Pew Research report that asked 1,642 Internet experts whether we'll see a major cyberattack that causes widespread harm to a nation's security and capacity to defend itself and its people. Among the 61% who say "yes," there are four main themes: Security is generally not the first concern among those developing Internet applications and that mindset will probably remain until a catastrophe occurs. Major cyberattacks have already happened and there's no sign that they'll stop. Businesses, including online retailers, are particularly vulnerable to cyberattacks. Criminals know the Internet is a key cog in business, government and consumers' everyday lives and they've already developed tools to mount aggressive cyberattacks. internetretailer.com

Why Shopping Centers Need eCommerce
Physical retail's predicament is summed up by Mark Twain's often misquoted adage that reports of his death had been widely exaggerated. Despite the myriad advances and expansion of e-commerce, consumers continue to do the majority of their shopping in physical locations. More over, notes Mike Kercheval, president and CEO of International Council of Shopping Centers, 78 percent of consumers prefer to shop in-store and they spend six times more than they do when they are shopping on a screen (according to his organization's data). pymnts.com

Survey: Consumers find disconnects in online, physical retailing
Although 83% of consumers say most of their shopping takes place in-store, they still report a variety of disconnects between the in-store and online retail experience. According to a survey of 1,000 U.S. consumers from electronic shelf label (ESL) technology vendor DisplayData, 44% of U.S. consumers think retailers offer different prices online and offline. In addition, 52% of consumers find stock availability an issue compared to online shopping and 26% think staff are poorly informed. Another 42% think the online promotions they are offered are not available through offline channels. chainstoreage.com

Armenian Power gang leader gets 32 years; tied to $1 M credit card skimming at 99 Cent Only stores  A co-leader of the Armenian Power gang was handed a 32-year federal prison term Monday for multiple racketeering crimes, including extortion, bank fraud and operating a debit card skimming operation that siphoned more than $1 million from thousands of customers at 99 Cents Only stores across the Southland. Mher "Capone" Darbinyan, 39, of Valencia, showed no reaction as U.S. District Judge R. Gary Klausner pronounced sentence and set a restitution hearing for February. Darbinyan was an Armenian Power leader who operated a sophisticated bank fraud scheme that used middlemen and runners to deposit and cash hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent checks drawn on the accounts of elderly customers and jewelry businesses. He also orchestrated a scheme that involved the installation of skimmers in 99 Cents Only stores in Riverside, Whittier, Huntington Beach, San Diego and elsewhere that were used to steal customers' debit card numbers and PIN codes. Darbinyan was additionally found guilty of conspiring to extort funds from a member of the Armenian community using threats of violence. He also possessed, on two occasions, firearms and ammunition after having previously been convicted of felony grand theft for his role in a 2004 debit card fraud scheme. Klausner called the crimes in the case "heinous." mynewsla.com

Fencing Operation: 3 with James Bond Gang ties, jeweler fence busted by Bergen Co, NJ Prosecutor's Strike Force  A joint investigation headed by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office and involving Englewood and Teaneck police and several other law enforcement agencies led to the arrests last week of three accused burglars with reputed ties to the infamous James Bond Gang and a Queens man accused of buying jewelry they took in more than 30 break-ins in three counties. CLIFFVIEW PILOT broke the story last week of the arrests in Queens of three Teaneck men - Jamelle Singletary, 26, and Lawal Erskine and Jamal Sermon, both 30 - as they were fencing the goods in Queens. Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli elaborated tonight, while announcing the additional arrest of the alleged fence, David Tadjiev, 38, of Astoria. The burglars operated much the same way as their Bond Gang predecessors - only without a hi-tech rigged car that gave the original crew its name. cliffviewpilot.com

$35,000 purse stolen from Carmel, California boutique  At 4 a.m. on Nov. 4, all was quite in Carmel by the Sea until someone burst through an upscale store's window display and stole designer handbags. The clever crook knew what he or she was after in the Italian boutique Bottega Veneta, because one of the bags grabbed was worth $35,000. A Bottega Veneta employee said the purse was the last of its kind for sale in the United States. It was made out of a single pristine piece of crocodile. A search of Bottega Veneta's website shows the most expensive purse made of crocodile sells for $29,600, but special unique bags in certain stores go for higher price tags. Investigators believe the thief cased the Carmel Plaza store in advance because the smash-and-grab was pulled off in under 60 seconds. Police also suspect the person was part of an organized crime ring. Security cameras recorded the thief fleeing in a waiting vehicle, and the purses were long gone by the time police arrived. No arrests have been made. ksbw.com

U.S. rules would expand white collar crime informers
U.S. regulators are working on rules that would require investment advisers, credit card firms and check cashers, among others, to serve as informers on white collar crime, a senior U.S. official said on Monday. The Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, known as FinCEN, is working on rules that would require those entities to file formal reports notifying U.S. authorities of any suspicious trading by employees or outside parties, said David Cohen, U.S. Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence. Banks, brokerages and mutual funds are already required to file suspicious activity reports, or SARs, with FinCEN to fight insider trading and money laundering. But U.S. regulators have been working for several years on how to expand the rules to hedge funds and others to close a big gap in U.S. anti-money laundering enforcement. Cohen said there was an "expanding universe" of entities that are important to the financial sector and have insight into financial crime, including commodity hedge funds and retail foreign exchange dealers. "If we are to be as effective as possible in countering illicit finance, we must begin applying appropriate record-keeping, reporting and program requirements to those entities," Cohen said in a speech at an American Bankers Association conference. reuters.com

Two Employees rob Ormond Beach, FL McDonald's
The McDonald's employees who robbed their own restaurant early Monday had planned to do the heist the night before but got scared, Ormond Beach police said. Officers rushed to a robbery at the McDonald's at 12:08 a.m. Monday. After the suspect was caught, police said they learned the heist was planned by employees who texted each other just before the hit. The robbery suspect, Steve Wilbon, 19, pretended to tie up his accomplice, Carmanique Little, 27, who was in the store and then let her and the manager run out the front door. Little and the manager ran to a Walgreens where a store employee called 9-1-1. Police are currently investigating two other people who have not yet been arrested. news-journalonline.com

Setting Off A Firecracker Inside A Walmart Is Not A Good Way To Distract From Video Game Theft  There's typically no shortage of interesting happenings at Walmart stores across the country. Just last week a teenager allegedly set fire to a display of christmas-themed stuffed animals, and this week a man allegedly set-off a firecracker in the video game aisle. WPTV-TV reports that a man was arrested Saturday after an explosion and fire occurred inside a Florida Walmart store. The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office reports that deputies were called to the store after security heard an explosion. Security footage from Walmart showed a man lighting a firecracker, placing it on the bottom shelf of the display and walking away before it exploded. A suspect arrested by deputies says he was approached by an unknown person who offered to steal a video game for him if he created a distraction inside the store. The unknown individual allegedly told the man that there was a firecracker on the bottom shelf next to the store's XBox games. Local authorities say the blast caused burn marks on the floor and shelving, as well as destroyed $29 worth of video games. The man was arrested and charged with first-degree arson and criminal mischief. consumerist.com

Pair hid inside Target in Plantation, FL until closing, then rolled out loot  Police on Monday released surveillance video recorded about 10:40 p.m. Oct. 30. It shows two suspects going into the store, 8201 W. Federated Roadway, just before it closed. The burglars then hid until the doors were locked at 11 p.m. After the employees and managers left, the suspects came out of hiding and at about 12:25 a.m. loaded a shopping cart full of merchandise. They left the store through an emergency exit, police said. Security cameras recorded both burglars entering the store and loading up merchandise, but did not capture them hiding in the store or leaving. sun-sentinel.com

Man Robbed CVS Pharmacy in PA 4 Times in 5 Months
A man from Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, has been arrested and charged with robbing the same CVS pharmacy 4 times. Following his latest robbery attempt on November 9, 2014, Tyler S. Young, 21, was charged with 4 felony counts each of robbery, theft, and receiving stolen property, and misdemeanor fleeing or attempting to elude an officer. During that attempt, Young allegedly entered the Hampden Township location, went to the pharmacy counter, and then displayed a knife. He allegedly walked the pharmacist and pharmacy tech to the pharmacy safe while demanding oxycodone. He left the store with 3 bottles of the narcotic and attempted to leave in a vehicle. He allegedly eluded police through several municipalities, but was eventually pulled over. An investigation of the vehicle revealed a large knife and 3 pill bottles. Young allegedly admitted to 3 additional robberies at the location committed on July 16, September 14, and October 2. He is being held in Cumberland County Prison on $80,000 cash bail. pharmacytimes.com

FBI arrests two in Bolingbrook, IL T-Mobile store robbery
The FBI arrested two men for allegedly holding up a cell phone store Thursday. Andrew Coleman, 30, of Country Club Hills, and Rashaud Gibson, 18, of Calumet City, will appear in federal court this week on robbery charges, according to FBI Special Agent Joan Hyde. At 5:25 p.m., two men wearing hooded sweatshirts entered T-Mobile, 745 E. Boughton Road, while a customer and two employees were inside. According to court filings, Coleman pulled out a handgun, said "This is a holdup" and forced everyone into a back room. Surveillance video allegedly shows Gibson went to a storage locker and filled white laundry bags with boxes of cell phones. Coleman threatened a customer by holding a gun to his head before forcing the three victims into a bathroom while the robbers fled, according to the FBI. Tracking software traced the phones to the parking lot of a liquor store on Dixie Highway in Harvey, where police found Coleman and Gibson putting a hooded sweatshirt into a charity donation bin, according to the FBI. theherald-news.com
