The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Macy's Sounds the Alarm Over Theft Surge
The retailer is rolling out new anti-theft measures

Major retailer's CEO warns of rising thefts in store - see the new anti-theft measures being taken

Retail bosses have warned of soaring thefts in many stores, as rising costs lead more and more people to turn to crime.

A spate of shoplifting in major retailers such as Target and Macy's are said to be cutting into profits already stretched by the worldwide economic downturn. Now Macy's chief executive has revealed that the firm will introduce a swathe of new anti-theft measures to target the thieves.

Speaking about the surging crime figures, Macy CEO Jeff Gennette told analysts earlier this month: "We definitely had an uptick since last year. It's an industrywide trend." He blamed the increase partly on shoppers returning to shopping in person after almost exclusively purchasing items online during the Covid pandemic.

In response to rising shoplifting figures, Gennette announced that Macy's is now using radio frequency ID tags to better track its inventory. It is also hiring more security personnel for stores and securing high-end brands with locked cables and censors.

Last year, President Biden signed into law the Inform Consumers Act, making it harder for criminals to resell stolen goods online. Currently, the Combating Organized Retail Crime Act of 2023 is making its way through Congress.

Lowe's Anti-Theft 'Robocop' in the News
Lowe's introduces brand new way to catch thieves with 'dystopian' device as retail theft causes closures in industry

Some Lowe's locations are testing security robots as retailers try various tactics to stop the increase of store theft.

Lowe's stores across Philadelphia have implemented K5 autonomous outdoor security robots manufactured by Knightscope, which is a security tech company based in the Silicon Valley area of California. Four Lowe's stores, in various Philidelphia, Pennsylvania neighborhoods, began testing the robots in February, The Philidelphia Inquirer reported.

Some are even being piloted in Washington state, North Carolina, California and DC, according to the news outlet. The 5-foot-tall, egg-shaped security robots that make a cosmic whirring sound as it glides across the pavement are part of a pilot project to "heighten the security and safety" of Lowe's stores.

Lowe's senior manager of corporate communications Larry Costello said locations the company decides are good sites to test the tech were selected "based on varying criteria and scenarios."

The robots use 16 microphones and a range of sensors, including lidar and sonar, to detect anomalies and report them to Lowe's central monitoring team in real time.

Organized shoplifting increased by 26 percent, according to the most recent National Retail Federation report. Retail expert Jeanel Alvarado, of Retail Boss, told The U.S. Sun the situation will only get worse.

"Footfall decreased during the beginning of the pandemic, and now that things are back open, store traffic is slowly returning back to normal, however, with increased people entering shopping malls and retailers, and Americans bracing themselves for an economic downturn - the threat of organized shoplifting and theft is at an all-time high," she said. the-sun.com  technotrenz.com

As COVID Fades, Theft Surges
Retail stores lock up more items behind displays as shoplifting returns to pre-pandemic levels
You may have noticed more items locked up behind glass when you go to the store, as stores place more and more household items under lock and key to prevent shoplifters from making profits off of stolen merchandise.

But the new retail trend, and added inconvenience, has not gone unnoticed. Customers hoping to buy something behind the glass must wait for an employee to get it for them, and in some cases the item gets walked over to the cashier to ensure its purchase.

Retail stores point to LAPD data that shows shoplifting has increased from 558 thefts from stores on average per month in 2020 and 540 in 2021, to 882 so far in 2023. But the number of thefts in recent years is skewed because of the pandemic.

Thefts and robberies at retail stores are 2% higher this year so far compared to the monthly average for L.A. between 2016 and 2019.

Bruce Thomas, a law enforcement expert, said the trend to put retail items locked behind a glass display case started before the pandemic.

"It started a couple of years ago during the pandemic, even just prior to that," said Thomas. "What we saw were people going into these retail establishments and seeing them steal in large amounts. ... What they do is they sell it in a third-party venue and so it's an organized crime."  abc7.com

Double Whammy: Crime & Inflation - A Vicious Cycle Hitting Businesses
The perfect storm: How crime and inflation surges are hammering a decades-old New Orleans restaurant

New Orleans crime surge is pushing customers away from dining out in the city

he Big Easy's ongoing crime wave has scared away regulars at a local pancake house as inflation eats into the decades-old restaurant's profits. The one-two punch has left a co-owner worried that her business will collapse.

New Orleans has grappled with a violent crime surge since 2019, with carjackings and homicides more than doubling in the three-year period, according to the New Orleans City Council's crime dashboard. Inflation has also been an ongoing problem for some business owners, with food prices increasing 11.3% compared to January last year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

"We have lost a lot of regular customers," Murdock said. "They won't come into the city."

Murdock said customers from outside of the city wrote on Facebook that they stopped going to the restaurant because they were afraid of New Orleans' crime. The restaurant co-owner attributed the violence to more anger and access to guns among the city's youth.

One New Orleans business owner told a local Fox affiliate in October he didn't want to live in the city anymore due to consistent burglaries and increased rent at his restaurant. But Murdock said she's determined to keep Betsy's afloat.  foxnews.com

The Crime Battle Rages on Between States, Big Cities & Progressive DAs 
How crime is igniting new conflicts between red states and blue cities

GOP-controlled state governments are opening an explosive new front in their decadelong drive to exert more control over Democratic-run cities and counties.

From Florida and Mississippi to Georgia, Texas and Missouri, an array of red states are taking aggressive new steps to seize authority over local prosecutors, city policing policies, or both.

These range from Georgia legislation that would establish a new statewide commission to discipline or remove local prosecutors, to a Texas bill allowing the state to take control of prosecuting election fraud cases, to moves by Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis and Missouri Republican Attorney General Andrew Bailey to dismiss from office elected county prosecutors who are Democrats, and a Mississippi bill that would allow a state takeover of policing in the capital city of Jackson.

The growing efforts by red states to seize authority over law enforcement in blue cities is drawing energy from the convergence of two powerful trends.

One is the increased tendency of red states to override the decisions of those blue metros on a wide array of issues - on everything from minimum wage and family leave laws to environmental regulations, mask requirements during the COVID-19 pandemic, and even recycling policies for plastic bags.

The other is the intensifying political struggle over crime that has produced an intense pushback against the demands for criminal justice reform that emerged in the nationwide protests following the murder of George Floyd in 2020.

Many of the red state moves to preempt local district attorneys have targeted the so-called "progressive prosecutors" elected in many large cities over recent years.

The Republican governors and state legislators pushing these preemption proposals mostly argue that they are necessary to combat high crime rates in municipalities under Democratic control. cnn.com

How Facial Recognition & Other Tech is Changing Retail for the Better
Vision AI is Taking Hold in Retail for Store Security and Analytics
While there is no perfect technology out there today to end theft, retailers are meaningfully enhancing existing store systems with AI to better interpret what they're seeing. These smart systems can help enhance security and prevent shoplifting occurrences by repeat offenders, as well as gather invaluable anonymized data to inform marketing and store planning decisions.

Preventing Repeat Shoplifting

Camera systems are the base of any retailer's in-store security and their presence alone deters a portion of would-be shoplifters. However, for the rest, cameras alone do little to end a shoplifting incident. Unless security personnel are actively monitoring the individual out of all of the store cameras as the theft is happening, shoplifters are able to exit easily and often return to the same store to steal again.

Cameras equipped with AI facial recognition can flag a known shoplifter anytime one enters the store. Once flagged, security personnel can keep a closer eye on the individual or escort them out if they're banned from the premises.

It's important to note that the technology cannot flag the act of shoplifting itself, or an individual shoplifter who is not known or has not been apprehended in the past. It simply acts as a heads-up to store security when a known shoplifter does enter, so they can pay closer attention. With repeat offenders accounting for 40.1% of all incidents where a suspect was identified, AI-powered security acts as an effective first step toward reducing the impact of repeat shoplifting.

Informing an Enhanced Store Experience

By integrating a vision AI system within a store's existing camera network, retailers can gain insights into what kinds of shoppers are visiting the store, at what times, how long they're staying, what sections they're shopping in, whether or not they're making purchases and more. This data can inform decisions to adjust store setup to streamline the movement of customers to priority areas, reorganize product placements, influence in-store marketing or even modify the type of music or lighting.

Industry and Consumer Readiness to Adopt

The same KPMG study found that 90% of retail business leaders believe their employees are prepared and have the skills for AI adoption, and 53% said COVID-19 increased their company's pace of adoption.  retailtouchpoints.com

The Future of AI & Security
How is Artificial Intelligence Changing the Security Sector?

There is a widespread acceptance that AI is set to have a significant impact on the physical security sector in the years to come

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is reshaping the security sector. With the Security Industry Association (SIA) citing AI as the predominant trend for a second year in a row, there's no doubt that new technology is transforming the way we work.

How has AI in security developed?

Whether it's in video surveillance, access control or risk management, AI is enabling the industry to switch its focus from reactive to proactive operations. "Security leaders who do not embrace a digital mindset risk becoming business irrelevant," says Michael Foynes, Senior Director at Microsoft Global Physical Security Operations.

For companies struggling to recruit security professionals, machine learning that mimics human behaviour over large areas will be a relief as it negates the need for hundreds of operatives. Crucially, combining AI with skilled security staff means that people power can be used where it's most effective.

According to Microsoft and Accenture, over three-quarters (78%) of leaders agree that the digital transformation of physical security will generate a meaningful ROI - but only 30% deemed it urgent - suggesting that security is lagging behind other sectors.

How is AI used in different sectors for security purposes?

Retail: AI-driven data and analytics helped retailers to track customer numbers during the pandemic. As well as reducing security issues (e.g. shoplifting), new technology is streamlining retail operations by ensuring that stock makes it onto shelves as quickly as possible and tailoring the customer experience in-store.

Law enforcement: Live Facial Recognition (LFR) is being tested by some police forces. The Metropolitan Police states that this kind of AI is "a carefully deployed overt policing tactic to help locate a limited number of people the police need to find in order to keep London safe."  ifsecglobal.com

Case In Point: More AI Robots in Stores
BJ's rolls out AI-driven, inventory-tracking robots across all its locations
BJ's Wholesale Club Holdings Inc. is streamlining shelf management activities with artificial intelligence (AI)-based robots.

The membership warehouse club retailer is deploying the Simbe Robotics Tally AI-based robotic solution across all stores. The robots will autonomously roam store aisles multiple times per day, leveraging computer vision technology to collect shelf data to help ensure that products are in-stock, shelved appropriately, and accurately priced.

Equipped with real-time shelf data provided by the Tally solution, BJ's hopes to enable faster restocking, direct store associates to quickly locate products, and obtain better visibility into inventory tracking. In addition, BJ's will review data captured by Tally robots to help monitor store conditions and the accuracy of merchandising execution.

Wakefern, Hy-Vee, Schnucks automate shelf tracking with robots

Wakefern Food Corp., which operates the ShopRite, Price Rite Marketplace, The Fresh Grocer, Dearborn Market, Gourmet Garage and Fairway Market banners, is also utilizing Simbe Robotics Tally robots. Similar to BJ's, robots autonomously roam store aisles of Wakefern banners up to three times per day, leveraging computer vision technology to scan products to ensure they are in-stock, in the correct location, and accurately priced on the sales floor.

Two other regional grocers, Hy-Vee Inc. and Schnuck Markets, have also deployed Simbe Robotics Tally robots in their stores to automate the capture of on-shelf data including inventory position, price accuracy, and promotional execution. chainstoreage.com

DOJ Targeting Retailers Over Opioid Crisis
Walmart & Rite Aid Accused of Contributing to Opioid Crisis

US sues Rite Aid for missing opioid red flags
The Justice Department on Monday filed a lawsuit against Rite Aid for allegedly violating the Controlled Substances Act, alleging that the company "knowingly filled unlawful prescriptions for controlled substances."

In a statement, Attorney General Merrick Garland said the Department of Justice is "using every tool at our disposal" to hold Rite Aid accountable for contributing to the opioid epidemic.

Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta said "Rite Aid's pharmacists repeatedly filled prescriptions for controlled substances with obvious red flags, and Rite Aid intentionally deleted internal notes about suspicious prescribers. These practices opened the floodgates for millions of opioid pills and other controlled substances to flow illegally out of Rite Aid's stores."

In the complaint, The Justice department alleges that from May 2014 to June 2019, Rite Aid filled thousands of unlawful combinations of prescriptions known as "the trinity" which included prescriptions for "excessive quantities of opioids, such as oxycodone and fentanyl."

Rite Aid pharmacists were accused of ignoring obvious signs of misuse and intentionally deleting some pharmacists' internal warnings about suspicious prescribers, such as "cash only pill mill???"

Rite Aid is one of the country's largest pharmacy chains, with more than 2,330 stores in 17 US states. It did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The DOJ joined a whistleblower lawsuit filed in 2019 by two pharmacists and a pharmacy technician from Rite Aid stores in Pennsylvania, North Carolina and West Virginia. The Justice Department occasionally joins whistleblower cases it considers stronger.

It has also sued Walmart and drug distributor AmerisourceBergen Corp over their alleged roles in the nation's opioid crisis. cnn.com

AT&T, PayPal, and Microsoft: Top Phishing Domains
Brand Names in Finance, Telecom, Tech Lead Successful Phishing Lures

AT&T, PayPal, and Microsoft top the list of domains that victims visit following a link in a phishing email, as firms fight to prevent fraud and credential harvesting.

Credential-seeking cyberattackers garnered the most phishing success by impersonating the brands of telecommunications firms, financial institutions, and popular technology companies in 2022.

That's according to an analysis of data collected by Internet services provider Cloudflare, which found that Individuals most often clicked on links in emails that appeared to come from AT&T and Verizon, PayPal and Wells Fargo, or Microsoft and Facebook. The rankings did not align with popularity - the Internal Revenue Service ranked No. 6 - but rather with the size of the brand's user base and the relative opportunity to turn compromise into cash, says Matthew Prince, CEO and co-founder of Cloudflare.

"We're seeing up and down the brand list, from the largest and most risky down to the smallest, that phishing is not going away as a problem," Prince says. "Email still continues to be the No. 1 entry point for an attacker [and] phishing still continues to be the No. 1 threat for almost all of our customers."

In addition, attackers are increasingly using phishing in an attempt to steal credentials from privileged employees and gain access to corporate networks, he says.

Cloudflare is not the only organization to see phishing as a threat, of course. In 2022, more than 300,000 complaints of phishing attacks flooded the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), slightly down from the peak in 2021 of nearly 324,000 complaints, but a 162% increase from three years ago.

The phishing problem can be more problematic on mobile devices, since attackers are harder to spot in most mobile mail clients. In 2022, mobile phishing encounter rates - a measure of the number of phishing attempts the average user receives - increased roughly 10% for enterprise devices and more than 20% for personal devices, according to mobile-device management firm Lookout. Overall, half of mobile users faced a phishing attack at some point in 2022, the company stated in its recent "State of Mobile Phishing in 2023" report. darkreading.com

'Ransomware Vulnerability Warning Pilot
CISA now warns critical infrastructure of ransomware-vulnerable devices
Today, the U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) announced a new pilot program to help critical infrastructure entities protect their information systems from ransomware attacks.

"Through the Ransomware Vulnerability Warning Pilot (RVWP), which started on January 30, 2023, CISA is undertaking a new effort to warn critical infrastructure entities that their systems have exposed vulnerabilities that may be exploited by ransomware threat actors," the cybersecurity agency said.

AdvertisementCISA's newly established Ransomware Vulnerability Warning Pilot (RVWP) program has two goals: to scan critical infrastructure entities' networks for Internet-exposed systems with vulnerabilities that ransomware attackers often exploit to breach networks and help vulnerable organizations fix the flaws before they get hacked.

This is part of a broader effort to fend off the escalating ransomware threat that started almost two years ago after a barrage of cyberattacks targeting critical infrastructure organizations and U.S. government agencies, starting with ransomware attacks that hit the networks of Colonial Pipeline, JBS Foods, and Kaseya.

In June 2021, the agency released the Ransomware Readiness Assessment (RRA), a new module for its Cyber Security Evaluation Tool (CSET). RRA helps organizations assess their readiness to prevent and recover from ransomware attacks and can be customized for different cybersecurity maturity levels.

Two months later, in August 2021, CISA published guidance to help at-risk government and private sector organizations prevent ransomware data breaches.

This list of best practices was released in response to multiple ransomware gangs using data stolen from victims in double extortion schemes where they threatened to leak the stolen info on their dedicated leak site, a tactic now adopted by most ransomware operations.

Earlier that month, CISA launched a new partnership to protect U.S. critical infrastructure from ransomware and other cyber threats, known as the Joint Cyber Defense Collaborative (JCDC). bleepingcomputer.com

AI-Generated Videos Packed With Malware
Hike in AI-Created YouTube Videos Loaded With Malware

AI-generated videos pose as tutorials on how to get cracked versions of Photoshop, Premiere Pro, and more.

Artificial Intelligence is being used to generate videos pretending to be step-by-step tutorials on how to access programs like Photoshop, Premiere Pro, Autodesk 3ds Max, AutoCAD, and others without a license. Instead, the videos are loaded with infostealer malware that scrapes the viewer's sensitive personal data stored on the device.

Researchers with CloudSEK measured a month-over-month increase of 200% to 300% since November 2022 of AI-created YouTube videos with links to infostealer malware, including Vidar, RedLine, and Raccoon.

Making the video lures more compelling to its targets, the CloudSEK security team added, AI video tools such as Synthesia and D-ID are being used to generate personas intended to exude trustworthiness across multiple languages and social media platforms, supercharging threat actors' ability to deliver infostealer malware.

"It is well known that videos featuring humans, especially those certain facial features, appear more familiar and trustworthy," the CloudSEK report explained. "Hence, there has been a recent trend of videos featuring AI-generated personas, across languages and platforms (Twitter, Youtube, Instagram), providing recruitment details, educational training, promotional material, etc. And threat actors have also now adopted this tactic." darkreading.com

3 Keys to Better Cybersecurity



RCC Loss Prevention updates: Strategic Objectives & RCC Retail Secure

Retail Council of Canada's (RCC) LP Advisory Committee is focused on working together as an industry and collaborating with police, courts and government agencies to identify solutions to the ever-growing retail crime in Canada and especially the increase of violence and Organized Retail Crime in retail. To ensure a focused approach, the Advisory has identified three (3) Strategic Priorities:

1) Increase of workplace violence, arson, and property crime
2) Collaboration with Police, Justice, and government
3) Organized Retail Crime

To ensure continued commitment, the LP Advisory Committee initiated a National LP Taskforce to bring together police agencies, criminal justice branches, government agencies, and other community-based programs to work with retail organizations on these top priorities. The goal is to have the right stakeholders at the table and explore opportunities and recommendations that have been raised and initiate proof of concepts and pilots to test the recommendations.

Out of the Objectives the Taskforce is focusing on these Top Priorities to support the overall Objectives:

• Establishing a Retail Theft Unit inside Police Agencies. Dedicated police officers to retail crime.

• Organized Retail Crime (ORC). Create a national strategy and identify police contacts within each major city to form an ORC committee with retail ORC specialists.

• National Retail Incident Reporting Platform. Identify the appropriate stakeholders to establish and approve the usage of one common platform for reporting incidents.

• Retail Roundup/Blitzes. Build a strategy and communication plan for retail blitzes.

• Victim Impact Statement/Community Impact Statement. Formalize the process for victim/community impact statements and recruit a representative from the criminal justice branch to meet with the group and provide input to composing an effective statement.

• Retail Crime Report. Identify a partner to support an annual retail crime report and build survey questions and methodology with key stakeholders.

Retail Businesses should attend the Retail Secure Conference on March 21, 2023 at the Toronto International Centre to network with other Retail Loss Prevention experts, industry suppliers, security and law enforcement professionals and explore actionable systems and explore forward thinking retail solutions.

Canada's Fraud Prevention Month

Record Fraud Losses Hit Canada
Fraud Prevention Month 2023: Fraud losses in Canada reach another historic level
In the past decade, technology has completely transformed the criminal landscape, making fraud easier to commit, more widespread, and more sophisticated than ever before.

In 2022, the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre received fraud and cybercrime reports totalling a staggering $530 million in victim losses. Nearly a 40% increase from the unprecedented $380 million in losses in 2021. Unfortunately, the increase in financial loss isn't tied to an increase in reporting-the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre estimates that only 5 to 10% of people report fraud.

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and the Competition Bureau are once again joining forces this March to lead the 19th edition of Fraud Prevention Month. Under the theme "Tricks of the trade: What's in a fraudster's toolbox?", this year's campaign will expose fraudsters' tricks, tools and tactics, to help Canadians equip their own toolbox to protect themselves.

While law enforcement agencies and members of the Fraud Prevention Forum are committed to strategically collaborating and dedicating resources to preventing and combatting fraud, Canadian consumers and businesses also have a huge role to play to help stop fraudsters. Education and awareness are the strongest line of defence against scams and fraud.

This March, join the conversation using #FPM2023 to find and share information to recognize, reject and report fraud. Follow us on social media and spread the word far and wide:

43% of Canadians Have Fallen Victim to Fraud
Canadians are exposed to fraud each year. Here's how businesses can help
Many Canadians are subjected to fraud and scams each year, and to coincide with Fraud Awareness Month in March, CTVNews.ca takes a look at some of the red flags for individuals and businesses. A survey by Ipsos shows many Canadians are falling victim to fraud, the most common being credit card fraud, email/phishing scams and debit card fraud.

The online survey, commissioned by Chartered Professional Accountants of Canada, a national organization representing accountants, found 43 per cent of surveyed Canadians have fallen victim to at least one type of fraud. Ipsos surveyed 2,005 Canadians 18 years or older between Jan. 3 to 5 this year.

These findings are a concern to Douglas Kalesnikoff, associate professor at the Edwards School of Business at the University of Saskatchewan, who said if businesses are able to recognize the red flags and prevent fraud can help lower the risk for all Canadians

What are Preventative Measures

Kalesnikoff says a whistleblower hotline, where other employees can report suspicious activity, is helpful. However, to prevent employees from wanting to commit fraud, Kalesnikoff says it has to be instilled within the ethics of the company.

"For example, let's say that they (the company) puts a lot of pressure on their salespeople to make certain sales targets," he said.

What could happen in this scenario is employees could "cut corners or give false representations to customers," Kalesnikoff said. "An organization has to be careful as to what sort of compensation plans or what motivations that they are supplying to the employees," he added.

More businesses in Canada have been subjected to ransomware attacks, like Indigo Books & Music Inc., where hackers attempt to obtain money or personal information from customers or employees.

As technology becomes more sophisticated, Kalesnikoff says companies should be investing money and energy to prevent such cyberattacks. ctvnews.ca

Theft Plagues the Canadian Cannabis Industry
Canadian producers report 2,200 kilograms of lost or stolen cannabis since 2018
An increasing amount of cannabis grown by licensed Canadian producers has been lost or stolen over the past five years, new data shared with MJBizDaily shows.

Separate data provided by Health Canada, the department responsible for federal health policy, also revealed that thousands of instances of theft have been reported to various levels of police.

However, the sum of the missing products - including 2,219 kilograms (4,870 pounds) of dried cannabis - is a small fraction relative to the amount of marijuana produced in Canada since recreational sales begin in 2018, which is more than 4.5 million kilograms.

In addition to the missing cannabis measured in kilograms, Health Canada also said more than 1,300 "units" and almost 200 "liters" of cannabis are unaccounted for.

A growing overall amount of lost or stolen cannabis could partly stem from an increasing amount of products being shipped around the country, according to one expert in the area of marijuana industry security.

"These incidents are becoming greater (in volume) but not more frequent," said David Hyde, CEO of Hyde Advisory & Investments in Toronto. "So the frequency, if anything, is probably down or maybe flat," he said. "But the volume, the amount of cannabis that's going missing, in my view, most of it is going missing in transit.

A Health Canada spokesperson told MJBizDaily via email that the agency is aware of 4,398 instances of lost or stolen cannabis that were reported to police services between 2018 and 2022.  mjbizdaily.com

Fallout From Nordstrom's Canada Exit
Nordstrom's exit marks farewell to a retail era
The news that Nordstrom Inc. was leaving Canada - and most notably its flagship location in Toronto's Eaton Centre - was not just farewell to a retail giant but adieu as well to a vestige of the 19th and 20th centuries.

The decision by Nordstrom, which launched in Canada in 2014, that it would close all 13 stores, costing about 2,500 jobs, was the latest death rattle from a retailing genre that made a huge social and cultural impact over a century or so.

The concept of "department stores" was born in the mid-19th century and hit a golden age in the first half of the 20th, multi-storied palaces of consumption offering just about any merchandise a shopper might desire.

The Bay, Hudson's in Detroit, Macy's, Marshall Field's all became symbols of plenty, of order and stability, of aspiration to, first, necessities, then - if life proceeded in the expected order- luxuries.

We wish Cadillac Fairview well in the bid to remake the space Nordstrom will vacate. It may well become something special. The possibilities range from the practical, breaking up the vast space into smaller retail and good outlets, to the fanciful, like moving the controversial spa theme park proposed for Ontario Place to this downtown location.

But it seems certain we know what it won't be, another retail giant offering fashion, appliances, home furnishings, housewares, a food hall and a cafeteria, for when the feet get tired and the stomach rumbles, all sprawling over multiple floors. thestar.com

'It is simply not true': Grocery CEOs push back at price-gouging allegations

Heads of Loblaw, Metro and Empire foods appear in parliamentary committee probing food inflation

The heads of Canada's biggest grocery chains pushed back at allegations they are profiteering from high inflation on Wednesday, telling lawmakers that they aren't the cause of high food prices - and claiming their profit margins are as razor thin as ever.

"We are not profiting from inflation, it doesn't matter how many times you say it ... it is simply not true," said Michael Medline, the CEO of Empire Foods, which owns Sobeys, FreshCo, Farm Boy, Foodland and other chains.

Medline was speaking to the Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food, which is probing the causes of food inflation, which has skyrocketed to its highest level in decades. cbc.ca

The Online Counterfeit Boom
How Beauty Brands Can Combat Counterfeit Cosmetic Scams
Encapsulating fragrance, makeup, skin and hair care, the cosmetics industry is one of the most successful markets in the world, with its value projected to reach $758.4 billion by 2025. Despite the economic downturn, the industry managed to grow by over 15% in 2022, with sales in the United States prestige beauty sector reaching $27.1 billion.

Until the pandemic, the beauty industry was one of the few sectors where in-person sales significantly outnumbered those made online, but this has begun to shift with new technologies, such as artificial intelligence and augmented reality, being deployed to make it easier to purchase products online. Now consumers can "test" products via smart apps.

However, this rapid shift online comes with a major drawback. As more consumers purchase goods on the internet, a world of new opportunities has opened up for criminals selling fake versions of "hero" products in a bid to profit from the industry's success.

The Rise Of Counterfeit Cosmetics

Counterfeiting impacts all industries with fraudsters banking on the success of well-known brands and products to make cheap imitations and con unsuspecting consumers. In the cosmetics industry, what appear to be best-selling products from trusted brands can be advertised on online marketplaces, like Alibaba, Ebay and Amazon. Appearing, online at least, to be identical to the genuine article, buying a fake can be an easy mistake to make. When it arrives, it may even smell similar or perhaps slightly "off," which could be chalked up to issues of transport. However, these inferior, illegal copies can have a serious impact on the health and safety of the consumer because there are no guarantee that the ingredients used in production comply with the cosmetic industry's stringent regulatory requirements on safety.

How To Help Protect Your Consumers

Cosmetics brands should also make customers aware of fakes by communicating regularly with them on where genuine goods can be purchased, and, when necessary, alerting them to fake products and the different types of risks they present. It is also important to educate consumers regularly on how to identify a fake. It's often difficult to distinguish genuine goods from fakes online but super low prices are often the first warning sign. forbes.com

It can be leveraged to improve rankings of product listings, add SEO keywords that help rank on SERP, create and optimize images for PDP and curate product descriptions designed to resonate with shoppers.

Las Vegas, NV: Man accused of stealing $11K in tools from Lowe's over 6 weeks
A Las Vegas man is facing charges after he allegedly stole numerous welders and other items totaling more than $11,000 over a period of six weeks and then sold them for a profit. Adam Gilliland, 35, was arrested on March 9 during a vehicle stop after police spotted a pickup truck, recently spray painted with a mismatched license plate.

According to the arrest report, Gilliland targeted Lowe's home improvement stores at least nine times from Dec. 26, 2022, through Feb. 14, 2023, to steal items to resell them. The report said he stole 9 welders, 2 tools and batteries, 1 generator, and a pressure washer as well as some other items. He used the same technique during most of the thefts. Gilliland would ask a sales associate to unlock a security case and take out an expensive tool for him to purchase and he would put it in his cart and head toward the cashier with the sales associate accompanying him. However, when he got to the cashier, he would run with the cart out of the store and put the stolen item in a white pickup truck, and drive off, the report stated. At one store, "The associate attempts to confront Gilliland when Gilliland stated, "do not try to stop me" and reaches into his pocket as if to grab a weapon, according to the report.  8newsnow.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

New York, NY: Greenwich Village pharmacy puts alleged shoplifters' photos on display in window
Elm Pharmacy and Wellness in Greenwich Village is taking a bold stand against alleged shoplifters. The business, located on 7th Avenue, has photos of alleged shoplifters with the word "thief" on it, a stark contrast to the mellow and organic vibes within. But Ken, the owner, told FOX 5 New York that the posters are a way of letting the sticky-fingered suspects know their actions are being recorded on multiple video surveillance cameras, and that they are not welcome inside. "Just trying something different, hoping that it makes people think twice before they walk in here, and maybe they'll think, 'Oh, maybe I don't want my picture in the window.' That's really the thinking behind it," Ken said. The shoplifting concerns are part of a growing trend in the city. A New York Post analysis of New York City Police Department data found that shoplifting complaints during 2022 were up by 45% over 2021. The NYPD made more than 22,000 arrests last year, but due to current laws, many of those arrested were quickly released back on the streets to do it again. Shoppers have had enough, too. fox5ny.com

Fort Lauderdale, FL: Man ordered to serve 400 years for 1989 armed robbery in Broward goes free
An armed robbery suspect who served over 30 years of a 400-year prison sentence walked out of prison Monday afternoon as a free man. Sidney Holmes, 57, left prison after state prosecutors launched a review of his conviction and the circumstances that led to his arrest and conviction. Holmes was greeted by his family as he walked out. He said the first thing he wants to do is get something to eat. "We have one rule here at the Broward State Attorney's Office - do the right thing, always," Broward State Attorney Harold F. Pryor said in a written statement about the case. "Our Conviction Review Unit is dedicated to seeking the truth and reviewing plausible claims of innocence from people who have exhausted all of their rights to appeal and have nowhere left to turn. We review each case with an open mind, with no preconceptions, and we follow the evidence wherever it goes." Holmes contacted the Broward State Attorney's Office Conviction Review Unit in November 2020 in which he asserted his innocent of the June 19, 1988 armed robbery, according to a written statement by the state attorney's office.

During the incident, a man and woman were robbed outside the One Stop store, on NW 6th Street, the statement said. Holmes was arrested on Oct. 6, 1988 and convicted after a jury trial the following April and sentenced in May, officials said. According to the statement, Holmes was found guilty of being the driver for two unidentified men who robbed the pair at gunpoint outside the store, and stealing the man's car. Prosecutors determined that Holmes had a "plausible claim of innocence" because of how he became a suspect and because of the precarious eyewitness identification that was the principal evidence against him at trial. Eyewitness identification of Holmes was "likely a misidentification" partly due to the photo and live lineup practices commonly used by law enforcement at the time. The identification of Holmes was scientifically unreliable and contrary to modern-day best practices in several ways cbsnews.com

Cape Girardeau County, MO: Man sentenced to federal prison for Cape Girardeau Co. gun store burglary
A Cairo man was sentenced to 3.5 years in federal prison for a Cape Girardeau County gun store burglary. Chayce Harrell, 21, was sentenced Tuesday, March 14 for his role in the 2020 burglary. He was ordered to pay $1,700 in restitution. Harrell pleaded guilty in December to aiding and abetting the theft of guns from a federally licensed dealer. According to the plea agreement, Harrell and two accomplices broke into a business in Cape Girardeau County known as JSE Surplus in the early morning hours of August 7, 2020. After breaking into the building, investigators say the group began gathering multiple guns to steal. However, the owner of the business was staying upstairs to keep watch on the property due to several recent reports of gun store burglaries in the area. The owner went downstairs and opened fire at the burglars with a shotgun. The three escaped unharmed, but dropped all but two guns as they left. According to court documents, Harrell was identified as a suspect nearly two years later as part of the ongoing investigation. kfvs12.com

Haverhill, MA: Man Pleads Guilty to Leading Effort to Steal Identities and Fraudulently Buy Cars
A 39-year-old Haverhill man pleaded guilty Monday to using the stolen identities of U.S. citizens from Puerto Rico to fraudulently purchase vehicles and other merchandise and open and use bank and credit card accounts. The U.S. Attorney's office in Boston described Alvin Rivera as the "leader of a conspiracy in Massachusetts that used stolen identity information of United States citizens to obtain credit and goods."
