Major Retailers to Meet in New York Next Friday on Racial Profiling and Loss Prevention  Major retailers will gather Nov. 22 at the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church at 7 West 55th Street here to discuss such topics as racial profiling, loss prevention and store operations. The forum will be cohosted by the Retail Council of New York State and the New York Metropolitan Retailing Association. Retailers such as Macy’s Inc., Barneys New York, Neiman Marcus Group, Lord & Taylor, Saks Inc. and Bloomingale’s confirmed to WWD they are planning to send representatives to the meeting, which will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. “Barneys New York has worked closely with Rev. Al Sharpton, Marc Morial [chief executive officer of the National Urban League] and The Retail Council of New York State to make sure that all key retailers are represented at the Nov. 22 event, including personally inviting many of the attendees. The retail council meeting is an important first step to addressing a serious problem in our industry,” said Charlotte Blechman, executive vice president of marketing and communications at Barneys. The meeting is a result of a few incidents of alleged racial profiling that have occurred at Macy’s and Barneys this year. Several black shoppers, who were stopped by the New York Police Department after making expensive purchases, have sued the retailers and the NYPD. A spokeswoman for Neiman’s said Thursday of the upcoming meeting, “People are coming from New York and Dallas. We believe in the goals that they are trying to achieve.” (Source

Of those 18-to-24 years old, 28% plan to shop on Turkey Day, and the total jumps to 39% for those aged 25-to-34. A recent Accenture study found that 55% of 18-to-24 year olds and 61% of 25-to-34 year olds said they are likely to shop on Thanksgiving Day, compared with 31% of 45-to-59 year olds. (Source

Should retailers begin accepting Bitcoins in-store and on mobile?
The growth of Bitcoins, which now has a Google Glass payments app, reflects how mobile is driving alternative payment solutions and challenging retailers to keep up with how payments are evolving. As Bitcoin becomes a more legitimate currency, retailers are considering whether to accept Bitcoin on a mobile site and application or via the Bitcoin mobile wallet in-store. Despite the fact that Bitcoin is slowly becoming more legitimate, it still has a somewhat seedy reputation and is often associated with illegal goods and services, mainly due to its anonymity. The currency is most notorious for its involvement in the Silk Road, the online black market for drugs that was recently shut down by the police. (Source

Retailers failing to capitalize on growing appetite for mobile shopping: new study

More security could have prevented stabbing at Paterson McDonald's, security expert claims - IOBSE Member Leslie Cole featured as a Security Expert Witness The owners of a McDonald’s in one of Paterson’s most crime-plagued neighborhoods could have kept a customer from being stabbed by providing adequate security, an expert testified Tuesday in a lawsuit filed by the now-wheelchair-bound victim. The restaurant at Broadway and Madison Avenue had two armed security guards, but they only worked from midnight to 4 a.m. on July 31, 2010. According to the security expert, the guards should have been on duty until daybreak. “Being a high-crime location, you needed people who look like they are enforcers,” said Leslie Cole, who owns a security management firm with offices in Union and Boynton Beach, Fla. “The city of Paterson is one of the highest crime municipalities in the state of New Jersey. And that restaurant’s location is one of the highest crime locations in the municipality of Paterson,” Cole testified. (Source

Crime Stoppers aims to curb shoplifting

By Sean Sportun
Manager, Security & Loss Prevention, Mac’s Convenience Stores

Shoplifting has evolved into a more lucrative criminal enterprise.

Each year organized groups of professional shoplifters steal or fraudulently obtain billions of dollars in retail merchandise to resell back into the marketplace.

This activity, known as Organized Retail Theft, is a growing concern for retailers across Canada. In addition to the direct financial losses to retailers, those who engage in Organized Retail Theft also pose a significant threat to the safety of employees and the community during the commission of their crimes.

What's more concerning, is the potential public health and safety concerns involved – for example, some products commonly stolen for resale include infant formula, over-the-counter medications and other health & beauty items; which may be expired, repackaged, or improperly stored or handled before reaching the consumer.

Recognizing this and with employee and community safety top of mind – the Retail Council of Canada, Building Owners and Managers Association of Toronto (BOMA), Interac Association, FACECROOK and retailers like TJX Canada, Loblaw Companies, Sobey’s, Mac’s Convenience Stores and Building Technologies have partnered with Toronto Crime Stoppers, Ontario Association of Crime Stoppers and the creative team at DDB Canada to develop a proactive campaign to bring awareness to the issue of Organized Retail Crime.

The focus of the initiative is straightforward – create awareness in the community on the growing issue of retail theft, let the offenders know the retail industry is taking action and lastly, provide the community with a conduit to relay anonymous information of offenders to the police by calling Crime Stoppers.

By working together with aggressive campaigns like this, Toronto Crime Stoppers and the Retail Industry will continue to make a difference in the prevention of crime at their locations. For more information on Organized Retail Crime visit

Conventional grocers suffer due to increased competition - The Fight is On - The Canadian Squeeze  Loblaw Companies and Metro are suffering amid increased competition in the grocery sector from Walmart, Target and Costco. Loblaw Companies Ltd. and Metro Inc. blamed increased competition in the grocery sector for disappointing quarterly earnings on Wednesday. To attract and keep price-conscious consumers, Metro said it will launch an in-stock guarantee for shoppers at its Food Basics chain. There are 116 Food Basics locations in Ontario, a number that is expected to grow to 124 by September as Metro locations are converted to the lower-price banner to better compete in a market that is being eaten away by discount retailers such as Walmart, Target and Costco. Metro will also begin promoting an existing policy that issues refunds to customers if produce isn’t fresh. It will print simpler signage in stores, revamp its flyers and increase radio advertising.

Retailers consolidate ownership of customer data
Marketing is the primary owner of customer data internally nearly doubled from 2012 to 2013, from 33% to 61%, and those reporting no explicit owner fell from 33% to 17%. Store operations, e-commerce/direct, and merchandising all showed increased ownership from 2012. However, RSR Research analysis shows this increase appears to be driven more from a recognition of the value of customer data that is generated in all aspects of the business (especially customer-facing ones), rather than a diversification of ownership of consolidated data sources.

Chilling new video shows the terror inside Garden State Plaza Mall during Nov. 4 shooting  This surveillance video captures Richard Shoop inside the mall, wearing what appears to be a motorcycle helmet. Dressed in all black, he was carrying a modified Sig Sauer rifle -- which looked like an AK-47. Although no one was injured in the incident, and it appears that suicide was Shoop's intent, shoppers ran for their lives in terror. Security experts say Shoop appears determined in this video. At one point, shots are fired and mall customers and employees in the video appear to cringe, then peer through a doorway in curiosity. They apparently see the gunman and start to run. Video also shows the gunman exiting an elevator, and just seconds later, a customer scurries out the door. Shoop fired six rounds inside the mall, striking an elevator, escalator and several store facades along a 300-yard path at about 9:30 p.m. Monday. He was using a Sig Sauer rifle modified to look like an AK-47 that he stole from his brother earlier in the day, officials said. (Source (Source

Female Internet ID Thief shipping the goods internationally - busted in Rincon, GA. 
A retailer’s alert staff helped put a Rincon woman in jail on fraud, forgery and identity theft charges. The Rincon Police Department arrested Bettye Medders, 58, for making several purchases over the Internet with stolen credit card information. She was being supplied the information from an unknown source on the Internet,” Scholl said. According to investigators, Medders used information from multiple credit card accounts, belonging to people from as far away as California. She bought laptop computers, flat-screen televisions, jewelry, furniture and other items with high re-sale value, Scholl said. Some of the items were scheduled to be delivered out of the country, he added, and were believed to be going to Ghana, Africa — where Medders’ source for the credit card information is believed to be. The merchandise Medders bought from online retailers was often delivered to the chains’ stores in and around Effingham for her to pick up, according to Scholl. The break in the case came when the Rincon Walmart’s loss-prevention department called police. (Source
