The Secrets to Walmart's Success:
The Future of Retail Store Operations and Asset Protection

By Tony D'Onofrio, Global Retail Influencer

"Information is power, and the gain you get from empowering your associates more than offsets the risk of informing your competitor." - Sam Walton

Walmart Innovation Accelerates

In response to mobile empowered consumers and ecommerce trends, Walmart has accelerated deployments of new technologies. An example is the Retail Intelligent Lab in Levittown, New York.

In April, Walmart announced the expansion to 350 stores of autonomous artificial intelligence computer vision mobile robots (AMRs) used to provide real-time on-shelf product data.

The company is also expanding autonomous, self-driving floor scrubbers from 300 to 1500 locations and by the end of the year will have 1,700 robotic BOPIS (Buy-On-Line-Pickup-In-Store) towers.

Continuous Asset Protection Innovation

The spirit of unending incremental innovation was alive and well represented during my visit to the Walmart AP test store in Oklahoma. For security reasons, I will only comment on a few of the technologies and will not go into extensive details observed during the tour.

Numerous science-backed solution examples from the Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC), including vivid reminders of the "See it, Get it, Fear it" theft deterrence philosophy are present throughout the Tulsa store. In the parking lot and on strategic locations around the building, you will find the "Lot Cop" where solar power, visual lighting, video with analytics, and audio capabilities combine in a unique solution to deter crime.

To understand Zone 4 parking lot protection, read Welcome to Omnichannel Retail Loss Prevention, on LPRC zones of influence layered security theft deterrence.

A Self-Checkout Secure Future

From multiple perspectives, the front-end of the Oklahoma store is the future of retail. Consumers have an extensive number of options to complete their shopping journey while passive / active security solutions deter Point-of-Sale (POS) criminal activities.

Walmart has deployed computer vision technology with artificial intelligence (AI) powered cameras to monitor checkouts in more than 1,000 stores.

The POS terminals in the Tulsa store have a Walmart patented camera installation with built-in analytics that integrate a public view image of the shopper into the transaction. Also being tested is video transaction monitoring for bottom of the basket items in large orders.

This particular location has 30 self-checkout stations, including full-belt variations. Larger public view monitors are above the lanes, each testing different features of incremental deterrence.

Additional public view monitors are also prevalent throughout the store, either in high theft categories (ePVMs) or at door exits.


Retail Trade Groups Criticize Tariff War Escalation
A number of retail trade groups issued statements strongly criticizing the Trump administration’s threat to raise tariffs higher and order U.S. companies to exit China. The threats came Friday after Beijing unveiled retaliatory tariffs on $75 billion in U.S. goods.

President Donald Trump ordered existing U.S. tariffs on $250 billion worth of goods be hiked to 30 percent from 25 percent. He also said he would raise planned tariffs on another $300 billion worth of goods to 15 percent, up from an earlier plan of 10 percent levies beginning Sept. 1.

Finally, Trump promised to declare a “national emergency” to order U.S. companies to cut ties with China. The developments rocked the stock market on Friday and heightened concerns that the continuing trade war could drive the U.S. into a recession.

In a statement, The National Retail Federation (NRF) Senior Vice President for Government Relations David French said, “It’s impossible for businesses to plan for the future in this type of environment. The administration’s approach clearly isn’t working, and the answer isn’t more taxes on American businesses and consumers. Where does this end?”

In a statement from Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA), COO Brian Dodge stated, “The President’s continued escalation of tariffs has already rattled the U.S. market. If uncertainty spreads from Wall Street to Main Street, the record expansion we’re enjoying will undoubtedly come to an end and it will be the American consumer, not China, who will suffer. Mr. President, we implore you to end this trade war before the damage is irreversible.”

Trump Aides Say He Isn’t Ordering U.S. Companies Out of China
Aides to President Trump said Sunday he has no plans to invoke emergency powers and force companies to relocate operations from China, two days after his Friday tweet that they were “hereby ordered” to look for alternative locations.

Escalating trade war could pound some struggling retailers into the ground
The last thing many of the nation’s most struggling retailers need is an escalation of the U.S.-China trade war. That’s especially so for retailers such as J.C. Penney, Macy’s and the like — legacy companies saddled with way too much debt, little pricing power and too many stores in the age of digital shopping. These companies are ill-equipped to raise prices to compensate for the higher cost of their merchandise as a result of a full-blown tariff war.

With next to no pricing power and costs on the rise, investors will ratchet up their concerns on the sales and debt repayment outlooks for these household name brands.

TJ Maxx, Marshalls Enjoying ‘Phenomenal’ Perks Thanks to Tariffs
- But Off-Price Retailers Are Not in the Clear Yet

One sector that’s seemed largely shielded from the trade war is off-price, as chains like T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and Ross have posted quarter after quarter of rising sales and traffic gains. Moreover, these retailers are far less reliant on Chinese imports than most of their full-price peers, and far more flexible in terms of where they source their products.

Analysts and industry experts have warned that the category could still face pricing pressure as a result of the tariffs that President Donald Trump has promised will take effect Sept. 1 and Dec. 15, however, and in reporting second quarter earnings this week, TJX Cos. (parent to T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and Home Goods) and Ross Stores acknowledged some uncertainty around their possible impact on margins.

Battered Hong Kong faces economic recession, existential crisis
Retail sales down 20-30% as violent protests continue

As one of the world’s most important trade and business hubs, Hong Kong was always going to struggle this year because of the escalating U.S.-China tariff war. But after three months of anti-government protests, the semi-autonomous Chinese city, a shopper’s paradise and gourmet destination for millions of tourists each year, is facing an existential as well as an economic crisis.

Banks are issuing unprecedented profit warnings, while hotels and restaurants are half-empty. Several global events have been postponed and economists say retail sales could drop by 20%-30% this year.

In the city’s International Finance Center, which houses many financial firms and luxury retail stores, some shops closed early on several days in August during violent protests. Stores including Dior, Tiffany & Co. and Samsonite have shortened their operating hours in some stores to allow staff to get home safely. Foot traffic has also fallen.

An employee at LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE’s Swiss watch unit Tag Heuer said, “With less tourists, our sales KPI have dropped,” referring to the store’s performance metrics. All sales are dropping “unless you’re selling masks now - and this,” he said, putting his hand on his head in reference to helmets worn by the protesters.

Walmart and other retailers face a new front on gun sales: Lawsuits
Although the recent mass shootings at Walmart stores in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, have renewed calls for retailers to stop selling firearms, some people tragically affected by gun violence are taking matters into their own hands — by suing.

This shift in the legal environment around the manufacturing and sale of guns is occurring even as lawmakers and the Trump administration remain paralyzed over gun control. In 2005, Congress passed a bill that protected gun manufacturers and sellers from being held liable for injuries deaths inflicted by their products. Yet there are exceptions in cases where the sale violates state or federal law.

As a result, experts say suits against retailers represent a new front against guns, with attorneys finding a more winnable argument: namely, retailers can be held liable for selling a gun to a person they should have known was purchasing the weapon for someone else.

Dollar General and Dollar Tree fined $1.2 million for selling expired drugs
Retail discounters Dollar General and Dollar Tree will pay $1.2 million in fines for selling expired products, the New York Attorney General announced Monday. The investigation also called out Family Dollar, which was acquired by Dollar Tree in 2015. All the chains sold expired over-the-counter drugs, while Dollar General was fined for selling motor oil unsuitable for modern cars. Dollar Tree also violated New York’s bottle deposit law.

Northwest Grocery workers authorize strike if talks don’t resolve differences
Grocery store workers in Oregon and Southwest Washington have voted to authorize a strike if the workers’ union fails to reach a satisfying agreement with negotiators representing such stores as Fred Meyer, QFC, Safeway and Albertsons. Members of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 555 in Baker City voted on Saturday night to authorize a strike. That vote concluded a series of 92 meetings held this summer across Oregon and Southwest Washington, according to Kelley McAllister, the union’s communications director. Members of the union voted nearly unanimously, McAllister said, to authorize a strike if needed.

Social media antics causing grief at Walmart, Target, Lowe’s and other stores
In a popular new social media fad that retailers wish will soon grow stale, YouTubers are creating click bate video content by staging pranks in big chain stores, most notably Walmart, but also in Target, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ikea and others. Often, the videos depict pranksters dancing and acting up in front of employees to instigate reactions for the camera, but oftentimes the performances involve vandalism with the intent of getting the workers to contact the police.

Long Beach, CA: Hotel cook planned mass shooting
Gunning down his own coworkers and guests at Marriott

A hotel cook apparently upset over human resources issues has been arrested for allegedly planning a mass shooting of his coworkers and guests at a Marriott property in Long Beach, California, city police said Wednesday. A tip from a colleague led police to arrest Rodolfo Montoya, 37, at his Huntington Beach home, Chief Robert Luna said at a news conference. Police seized firearms, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and tactical gear, including high-capacity magazines and an assault rifle. "Suspect Montoya had clear plans, intent, and the means to carry out an act of violence that may have resulted in a mass-casualty incident."

Spotlight on All-Tag

ALL-TAG Develops Customizable 31x32 mm SuperLabel Combines Security with Omni-Channel Marketing

- ALL-TAG, an American manufacturer of RF Labels, and a leading supplier of AM Anti-theft Security Tags, Security Labels, and other loss prevention products, announces the development of a customizable 31x32 mm SuperLabel®, a multi-purpose security label that will increase source tagging compliance by allowing Consumer Goods Manufactures (CGM) to promote their brand and enhance merchandising.

ALL-TAG's customizable security label offers many printing options, such as brand logos, slogans, and QR Codes. CGM's and other retail merchandise vendors that are required to source tag their merchandise for various retailers can now use the security label as an additional tool that will keep shoppers informed and ultimately increase sales of their products.

Our 31x32 mm SuperLabel is also equipped with patented technology that boosts the detection performance of the label. Therefore, users of this smaller label will not be sacrificing performance. The smaller footprint allows it to fit on more retail product packaging, does not conceal important printed content on the outside of the packaging.

"We're thrilled to have added new machines in our South Florida factory that enable us to produce this product in the US," commented ALL-TAG's Vice President of Sales, Andy Gilbert.

"Source taggers can now satisfy their source tagging requirements, but also make the security label work for them as well." Gilbert continued, "This is a win for everyone because it will increase source tagging compliance, decrease shrink, and increase sales all at the same time."

Does the punishment fit the crime?

Recently, in Lake County, Illinois there was a series of unfortunate events leading to the fatal shooting of a 14-year old. This case has taken an interesting turn as the application of a “felony murder rule” law, centuries old, has come under rightful scrutiny. The case, highlighted by the Chicago Tribune, involved a 75 year old man shooting the 14-year old boy as he was believed to be breaking into his vehicle and reportedly armed with something in his hand as he approached the man. After the shooting, the companions of the 14-year old that were involved in the commission of the original crime have now been charged with this murder. The felony murder rule allows for prosecutors to charge those responsible for committing a felony with a murder if it takes place as a result of the original felony.

What does this have to do with Loss Prevention professionals? Well, truth be told, there is often a lot of discretion when it comes to the disposition of a case ranging from theft to policy violations. The incident in Illinois is an example of the application of a law that could be interpreted differently based off of these circumstances. In the Loss Prevention industry, specifically in the investigative interview process there is a wide variety of policies and procedures that employees may be held to. However, the violation of these policies and the subsequential punishment should be a well-thought out process, with the appropriate partners involved.

80 Charged in Massive $46M BEC Operation Bust
Eighty people have been charged for their roles in a massive and complex fraud operation that attempted to steal $46 million in business email compromise (BEC) and romance scams, according to the US Department of Justice in a 252-count federal grand jury indictment unsealed on August 22.

The October 18 indictment alleges 80 defendants, mostly Nigerian nationals, used BEC fraud, romance scams, and schemes targeting the elderly to defraud victims out of millions in a scheme that ran from 2014 through 2018. At least $6 million was taken in that time; the conspiracy targeted another $40 million. Some defendants, including 14 arrested Thursday and others in custody, are based in the US. Officials believe most are abroad, primarily in Nigeria.

The indictment includes descriptions of more than 440 "overt acts" conducted in the operation, including details of fraudulent wire transfers and cash withdrawals affecting different victims.

Is Apple's Top $1 Million Bug Bounty Too Much?
Progressive companies seeking to improve their security are increasingly adopting bug bounty programs. The theory is that rewarding outside researchers improves security outcomes. But in practice, bug bounty programs can be messy and actually create perverse incentives, says bug-hunting expert Katie Moussouris.

During her keynote at Gartner's Security and Risk Management Summit in Sydney, Moussouris addressed Apple's recent announcement that it would dramatically increase the rewards it pays for certain kinds of vulnerabilities. The top reward now is $1 million for a remote, persistent iOS attack.

She contends that such a large sum of cash can negatively influence the human dynamics behind bug bounties. If paying money for vulnerabilities seems straightforward, it's anything but. There is actually complicated human psychology behind bounties, and getting the balance right is difficult.

"If Apple's stated goal was to compete with the offense market, it failed," Moussouris tells me. "If the stated goal is to attract new security researchers - well, that might work in the short term, but why would they join you if they just got a million dollars?"

More Than Half of Logins on Social Media Platforms are Fraud
More than half of logins (53%) on social media sites are fraudulent and 25% of all new account applications on social media are fraud, according to the Q3 Fraud and Abuse Report by Arkose Labs.

The report analyzed more than 1.2 billion transactions spanning account registrations, logins and payments from financial services, e-commerce, travel, social media, gaming and entertainment industries, in real time, to provide insights on the evolving threat landscape. The report found that one in 10 transactions are attacks, ranging from automated bots to malicious humans.

Retail Industry Attracts Sophisticated Human Attacks

The retail industry experiences the highest volume of human driven attacks, with more than half of attacks being human driven. Unlike bot traffic, inauthentic human traffic is harder to detect as human behavior is unpredictable and highly nuanced.

Security continues to get more "CLEAR"
CLEAR, which scans eyes and fingertips to verify the identity of airport travelers, has decidedly solidified another field of play. There’s now a “fast lane” at Progressive Field baseball park in Cleveland, first made available at this spring’s Indians series against the Miami Marlins. For those unaware, it’s the 17th professional sports facility — and the 12th in Major League Baseball — to feature the technology.

The idea of quick entry is certainly appealing, but so, too, is an added layer of security through biometrics; overall, CLEAR is now present in more than 50 airports, stadiums and other arenas nationwide. It takes just a few minutes to enroll, and in this day and time, when large unknown crowds of people can be daunting from a safety perspective, the company hopes that little extra bit of “ease” might bring great comfort.

Cities Are Saying No to 5G, Citing Health, Aesthetics - and FCC Bullying
5G is often considered the future of telecommunications, with the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission even noting it's integral to "winning the race with China." But despite the FCC setting rules for its rollout, 5G has become a hot-button issue in some cities across America where leaders don’t want to be told how and when to install the technology. Health concerns are a big factor, as well, even though the World Health Organization equated potential harm from the 5G's radio-frequency emissions with other “possibly carcinogenic” substances, including coffee and pickles, per The Wall Street Journal.

Walmart is losing a lot of money online. Does that matter?
Walmart Inc.’s online sales—which include a large buy online pick up in store (BOPIS) operation for groceries and other goods—are soaring. But profit for the ecommerce operation could be years away, according to industry observers.

In the first and second quarters of Walmart’s current fiscal year, online sales grew 37.0%, the company reported. Management expects growth in ecommerce sales to be at least 35% for the year as a whole. That’s far above the 15.0% overall growth rate for U.S. ecommerce sales in 2018, according to Internet Retailer data.

While Walmart’s online growth is impressive, it has been a drag on profit. Walmart’s online operations have been losing at least $1 billion per year, analysts and media reports say.

A July 8 investors’ note from Simeon Gutman, an analyst with Morgan Stanley & Co. LLC, says the losses are even higher. Walmart’s U.S. ecommerce business could lose about $1.7 billion this year from $1.4 billion in 2018, but will level off after that, Gutman wrote.

Despite the online losses, Morgan Stanley is optimistic about Walmart. The investment bank gives Walmart an “overweight” recommendation, meaning analysts expect investment returns on Walmart stock to exceed those of the overall stock market slightly. Baked into that rating is an assumption that ecommerce losses will start to decline. “Therefore, any indication that [ecommerce] losses are not peaking in 2019 would be a setback to our thesis, which we would evaluate alongside other factors,” the investor note says.

Camarillo, CA: Mall thieves got locked into sunglass store by employees at Camarillo Premium Outlets
Thieves stole thousands of dollars worth of sunglasses from a store in the Camarillo Premium Outlets in Camarillo, California, but their getaway was delayed by a quick-thinking employee who locked them inside the store Saturday night. The four thieves are part of a "high end shoplifting crew," said Camarillo police.

In cell phone videos from witnesses, the thieves were shown locked in the store and trying to break out by banging, punching and kicking on the glass door of the Solstice Sunglasses store. A few minutes later, clouds of smoke filled the store as the thieves tried to use a fire extinguisher to break down the door. Instead, they broke the it covering the store in clouds of carbon dioxide.

Being engaged in the business of your retailer is a critical element for every Loss Prevention executive. For decades, our industry has often been accused of being silo'ed and separate from the operators and the merchants. This separateness in many cases ultimately leads to a disconnect, a sense that we aren't part of the team. Which in actuality, regardless of your performance, it can lead to your job being eliminated or just you being replaced with someone new. So the real question is: How do you become engaged in the business and truly add value to the company's success beyond reducing shrink? And then having the courage to go make it happen. We all tend to stay in our comfort zones and remain safe. At least that's what we think. But at the end of the day, it's that comfort zone that can actually increase your risk. So the next time you're in a corporate meeting or traveling stores with your operators or merchants, go beyond with your comments and opinions - take a risk - add some value - help them run the business - you might be surprised.

Just a Thought,

Gus Downing
