The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Cracking Down on ORC Networks & Criminal Enterprises
NACDS' Steve Anderson urges inclusion of Inform Consumers Act in legislative compromise

Anderson emphasized that it is critical to take action that would crack down on organized retail criminal, or ORC, networks and criminal enterprises threatening the well-being of the American consumer.

Noting that criminal networks continue to threaten store teams and consumer safety, Steve Anderson, president and CEO of the National Association of Chain Drug Stores, is urging a House-Senate Conference committee to reach an agreement that includes the bipartisan INFORM Consumers Act in the final legislative compromise.

With COVID organized theft growing more sophisticated - and criminals exploiting new opportunities for theft - "NACDS is calling on Congress to prioritize consumer health and safety, and to help stamp out organized retail crime before year's end," Anderson said.

He also emphasized that pharmacies remain a prime target for organized retail criminals, or ORC, looking to dupe unsuspecting consumers for their own personal gain and profit.

"In fact, the ubiquity and convenience of NACDS members' stores have made them among the most targeted retail industries. NACDS represents traditional drug stores, and mass merchants and supermarkets with pharmacies - which collectively operate more than 40,000 pharmacies nationwide," he said.

He went on to say that the COVID pandemic has also gravely increased the risk of ORC, giving criminals the opportunity to leverage e-commerce marketplaces to set up fake accounts and sell illicit, tampered items.

"Fortunately, bipartisan legislation that would help keep pharmacies and consumers safe from criminal networks has been introduced in the U.S. Senate and passed in the U.S. House of Representatives as a part of the broader America COMPETES Act.

Anderson explained that The INFORM Consumers Act - legislation on which the retail community, law enforcement, consumer groups and even online retail marketplaces themselves agree - promotes safety, transparency and accountability by requiring e-commerce marketplaces to verify the identity of third-party sellers operating on their platforms and provide basic contact details to customers who may have questions or concerns about the products they purchase.  drugstorenews.com

Retail Mass Shooting Insurance Rates Spike
Analysis: U.S. mass shooting insurance rates jump as incidents rise
The cost of buying insurance protection against mass shootings has spiked more than 10% in the United States this year following a string of deadly events, insurers said.

The United States witnessed 293 mass shootings so far this year, according to a report by the Gun Violence Archive that defines them as any event involving the shooting of four or more people other than the assailant. That compares with 309 the same period last year, but is sharply up from 240 in 2020.

Demand for such insurance has risen following recent shootings, including the murder of 19 children and two teachers at a Texas elementary school last month, the United States' worst school shooting in nearly a decade. Active shooter insurance typically covers victim lawsuits, building repairs, legal fees, medical expenses and trauma counseling.

"The number of inquiries we've been receiving over the last few weeks have definitely spiked ... we haven't been as busy as this ever before," said Chris Parker, Head of Political Violence and Deadly Weapons Protection at Lloyd's of London insurer Beazley.

Parker said the insurer had seen a 25% jump in revenue so far this year for its deadly weapon policy, with a 30-35% jump in inquiries and a 10%-15% increase in rates, driven by the rising number and severity of gun attacks.

The price of an active shooter insurance policy varies according to location, safety protocols and the gun laws of the state of residence, insurers say.

Insurers are already charging schools, healthcare institutions and retail establishments more for cover and prices in general are 5% to 10% higher than last year, said Tarique Nageer, managing director, terrorism and political violence at insurance broker Marsh. reuters.com

Businesses Abandon Chicago Over Crime Surge
Skyrocketing Chicago crime has small businesses, corporations pack their bags: 'Enough is enough'

Violent crime in Chicago is up 35% compared to last year

A business owner in Chicago, Illinois tells Fox News Digital that skyrocketing crime in the city forced him to quit doing business in town adding to the list of individuals and businesses that have fled Illinois over the past couple of years amid surging crime.

Gary Rabine, founder of the Rabine Group and owner of 13 businesses, told Fox News Digital this week that surging crime in Chicago was a driving factor in his decision to pull his road paving company out of the city after his crews were repeatedly robbed, sometimes in broad daylight, even after adding security to the jobs.

Along Griffin, other companies have made the decision to pull out of Chicago amid the skyrocketing crime in the city.  Construction and mining equipment giant Caterpillar announced this month it is moving its headquarters from Deerfield, Illinois, a north shore suburb of Chicago, to Irving, Texas just outside of Dallas.

In addition to companies leaving the state, Illinois lost a higher percentage of residents than any other state in 2021, according to a survey by Allied moving company.

Rabine also pointed to damage he says Pritzker has done by signing a controversial criminal justice reform bill that ended cash bail and has been condemned by a variety of law enforcement officials.

Chicago Police reported 44 shootings with at least 61 wounded victims from 6 p.m. Friday through Monday across the recent Juneteenth holiday weekend, according to statistics released earlier this month. The department also recorded that 10 people were killed during the extended weekend.

Last month, data showed that the number of reported violent crimes in Chicago rose 35% compared to last year's number during the same time period. foxnews.com

Limiting Guns in Public Places
New York gov to unveil new gun legislation in response to Supreme Court ruling
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on Wednesday detailed what is in gun safety legislation she will propose during a special state legislative session scheduled for Thursday.

Hochul is set to propose a slew of ideas in response to last week's Supreme Court decision to strike down a state law that had limited the concealed carry of handguns in public to people who had "proper cause."

The legislation will define a number of "sensitive locations" where people will not be allowed to carry concealed guns, Hochul said.

Those locations include: federal, state, local government buildings; health and medical facilities; places where children gather like daycares, parks, zoos and playgrounds; public transportation like subways and buses; polling places; and educational institutions, Hochul said.

If the proposed bill is signed into law, all private businesses will be classified as "no open carry" areas by default, unless business owners post signage indicating that people are allowed to carry concealed weapons, Hochul said.

Hochul's proposed legislation will also strengthen the list of disqualifying criteria, banning those with a history of dangerous behavior from being able to get a permit. abcnews.go.com

Stricter Penalties for Violent Criminals
Tennessee tough-on-crime laws take effect July 1
New laws will be issued Friday, July 1 to protect victims of crime and strengthen penalties for violent criminals, according to the Tennessee General Assembly.

The first law, Major Truth in Sentencing legislation, requires a person convicted of certain violent offenses to serve 100% of their sentence before becoming eligible for release. The law was sponsored by Lt. Gov. Randy McNally (R-Oak Ridge) and Senator Jon Lundberg (R-Bristol).

Under the new law, a person convicted of first degree murder, second degree murder, vehicular homicide, especially aggravated kidnapping, especially aggravated robbery, carjacking, and especially aggravated burglary will serve 100% of their sentence without reduction credits earned.

"Truth in Sentencing is vital legislation that protects victims and provides true accountability for those who commit crimes," McNally said. "The clarity Truth in Sentencing provides will serve as a critical deterrent against violent offenders. The costs associated with the law are well worth the peace of mind offered to victims and the overall boost to public safety. Tennesseans across the political spectrum want law and order in Tennessee. This legislation will go a long way toward providing it." wate.com

6th COVID Wave?
Top NY Doctor: New COVID Wave Is Starting, With 'Worst Version' of Omicron

The BA.5 subvariant of the omicron variant of COVID-19 appears to be on the rise in New York City and fueling a possible sixth wave of the pandemic

A new COVID wave appears to be starting in New York City, fueled by the strongest subvariant of the omicron strain of coronavirus to date, one of the city's top epidemiologists said Tuesday.

The BA.5 subvariant, first seen in South Africa and then Portugal, is considered by some experts to be the "worst version" of omicron seen yet, given its apparent capacity to escape prior immunity and transmit more readily.

Dr. Jay Varma, a Weill Cornell epidemiologist and formerly then-mayor Bill de Blasio's top public health advisor during the pandemic, said infections appear to have stabilized at a high level in the city, rather than dropping.

"The decline of reported #COVID19 cases in NYC has stopped. Reported cases are at a high plateau, which means actual transmission is very high when you account for the >20x under-counting. This is likely the beginning of a BA.5 wave," Varma tweeted. nbcnewyork.com
COVID's Retail Restart
Retailers: Reinvent Yourself In The 'Retail Restart' By Avoiding These Obstacles
In the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic, traditional retail nearly came to a halt. Uncertainty loomed as retailers scrambled to optimize their businesses for e-commerce and navigated shifting supply chain pressures. To say the least, retailers have navigated a lifetime's worth of change over the past two years. All of that change has prompted many to reinvent themselves and establish operations fit for a digital-based, omnichannel world.

Today, the reality for most retailers looks much different than it did two years ago. E-commerce growth has normalized, and in-person shopping has seen an uptick. In fact, NRF predicts that retail sales of all kinds will grow between 6% and 8% in 2022, potentially reaching $4.86 trillion. The pandemic-driven adoption of e-commerce has cemented online shopping's place in consumers' hearts due to its convenience. However, that same demand for convenience now puts pressure on retailers to provide delivery options and multichannel shopping experiences so that consumers can shop when they want, where they want.

All these combined changes contribute to the great retail restart in the post-pandemic era. So, as retailers continue to reinvent their businesses for our always-on, omnichannel world, what barriers stand in the way? forbes.com

Walmart Responds to FTC's Fraud Lawsuit
FTC Lawsuit Against Walmart is Unfounded and Ignores the Billions Walmart has Saved Customers
A narrowly divided Federal Trade Commission ("FTC") has
filed a misguided lawsuit against Walmart regarding money transfer services that the Company offers to consumers. Here's what you need to know about the lawsuit:

Since Walmart began offering our customers flat, low fee money transfer services at our stores,
the company has saved consumers-particularly the unbanked and underbanked- an estimated $6 billion in fees by bringing important competition to the money transfer industry.

Walmart has a robust anti-fraud program to help stop third-party criminals who try to use money transfer services to commit fraud, and only a miniscule number of transactions are even alleged to be fraudulent. In fact, Walmart has stopped hundreds of thousands of suspicious transactions totaling hundreds of millions of dollars.

Despite Walmart's anti-fraud programs,
the FTC is trying to blame the Company for actions by third parties, including fraud the FTC has already acknowledged was caused by another company-while that company was under federal government oversight through a compliance monitor, and during a period when that company's own fraud prevention system had failed.  Read Walmart's full response here

NRF PROTECT 2022 Highlight
How to manage risk by working collaboratively

NRF PROTECT: Breaking down silos with American Eagle Outfitters, Etsy and Tractor Supply Co.

In the afternoon of the last day of NRF PROTECT 2022, Christian Beckner, NRF's vice president for retail technology and cybersecurity, gathered a group of senior technology executives for a brief, fast-paced discussion of some overarching themes of the conference. Joining him were Andrew McLean, executive vice president and chief commercial officer, American Eagle Outfitters; John Matas, head of fraud operations, Etsy; and Kevin Miller, vice president for information security and customer privacy, Tractor Supply Co.

The session, entitled "On the eve of disruption: Managing global risk with resilience and agility," was designed to go to the heart of the value proposition of the conference, bringing together loss prevention, fraud and cybersecurity on a single stage to talk together about what they're doing to protect their employees, their customers, their data and other assets - and ultimately to bring these activities together to address risk as a function and improve the bottom line.

A major factor in this bringing together of formerly diverse activities has been and continues to be the convergence of the online and in-store sales channels, which only accelerated during the COVID-19 pandemic. This has brought with it a threat convergence, in which fraudsters have taken advantage of omnichannel retailing by committing multichannel crimes.

Throughout the conversation, a couple of key points kept surfacing. One was that the current risk environment - and, as far as anyone can tell, the future as well - is fluid and unpredictable. "We keep trying to script out all these plans," McClean said, "but the plan's dead at hello. It's a question of understanding who you have to talk to and where the threat could come from. The truth is, if you get the right people in the room, you get that ingenuity and the ability to work our way around whatever it is." nrf.com

Retailers Adapt to Labor Shortage
Some Food Companies Say Hiring Challenges Are Starting to Ease

At The Wall Street Journal's Global Food Forum, retail executives, restaurant owners and suppliers say they are adapting to a tight labor market

Whole Foods Market says it is finding it easier to hire retail workers. Turnover at Chipotle has stabilized after ticking up last year, according to the burrito maker. Grubhub says it is having no problem attracting drivers.

Several executives, speaking about the labor market at The Wall Street Journal's Global Food Forum in Chicago, said they are seeing some early signs that labor pressures are easing for entry-level positions. However, many said that hiring and retaining staffers still takes much time and attention.

Some employers expressed optimism at the Journal event that the headaches in staffing restaurants, grocery stores and other businesses who employ many hourly workers might be beginning to improve, even as others insisted that they still needed many more employees.

Many hospitality workers changed fields during the pandemic, making it more difficult for companies to recruit workers now, said Ariane Daguin, founder and CEO of meat and game purveyor D'Artagnan. Restaurants make up about 75% of D'Artagnan's clients. Staffers discovered "they don't have to work for small wages in a very stressful environment at odd hours when other people are resting," she said. wsj.com

Poor Communication: The Driver of the 'Great Resignation'?
Survey: Front-line workers say management's messages 'out of touch'
Communication between front-line employees and their managers may be lacking, according to a recent survey of U.S., U.K. and Australia frontline workers by operations technology platform SafetyCulture. The firm found 40% of workers said that communications from management revealed management is "out of touch."

Additionally, 42% of respondents said that communications from their organizations' headquarters were often irrelevant. This negative sentiment extended to internal communications more broadly; 30% of workers said that internal comms got in the way of performing their roles.

Even important updates may slip past frontline workers, SafetyCulture found. More than 1 in 4 respondents said their organizations did not have a "go-to" channel for such updates, while 32% said that if there was such a channel, it did not work for someone in their roles.

The Great Resignation impacted many occupational categories, but those sectors with large shares of frontline workers - such as accommodation, food services and transportation - were especially vulnerable. hrdive.com

Spending Up 0.2% in May
Consumer spending growth slows in May, as higher prices weigh on the economy
Americans are still spending, but at a slower pace than a few months ago, a sign that the biggest part of the U.S. economy is beginning to moderate.

Overall consumer spending rose by 0.2 percent in May, down from 0.9 percent growth a month earlier, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) said Thursday. The report also showed that one measure of inflation remained steady, with overall prices up 6.3 percent in the last year.

Consumer spending has so far been a bright spot in the U.S. economy, even as inflation hits 40-year highs. Although Americans say they've lost confidence in the economy - consumer sentiment measures have plunged to record lows - they have so far continued to pay for goods and services. But economists say there are signs that is beginning to change, as higher interest rates and slowing savings rate take a toll on families' budgets. washingtonpost.com

How Interface Security Systems Maximizes ROI for Clients

Leadership for commercial monitored and managed service provider Interface
talk leveraging AI to deliver smarter security, network & operational solutions.

Founded more than a quarter-century ago and headquartered within the St. Louis metro area, Interface Security Systems is a leading, complete nationwide provider of recurring revenue-based managed security, network connectivity, unified communications as a service (UCaaS) and business intelligence solutions to distributed enterprises.

Best known for the robust interactive video monitoring capabilities gained from the 2012 acquisition of Westec, in 2021 the company reported 37% growth and landed $60 million in equity investing. Interface serves around 65,000 customer locations, with a strong foothold in the retail market that includes Michaels, Swatch, Kay Jewelers, Applebee's and Panda Express.

SSI spoke with Senior Vice President of Marketing Sunita Mani, CEO Brent Duncan and Senior Vice President of Enterprise Security Sean Foley to find out how the company improves security, streamlines connectivity and optimizes operations to maximize ROI for the nation's top brands. Also discussed are pandemic impacts and outcomes, in-demand technologies and services, and emerging market opportunities.

How has the pandemic impacted and affected your customer relationships?

Brent Duncan: We saw a disproportionately high impact on our customer base, given that we're dealing so much with consumer-facing organizations. We have a large customer base within retail that was heavily affected by the pandemic. A good portion of that customer base is mall-based, even further impacted.

The pandemic, ultimately, drastically increased tech adoption. The focus turned to leveraging new technology, video, anything in-store to drive awareness on customer experience or to create convenience as a result of some of the issues from the pandemic. We were excited to partner with our customers to help navigate that and figure it out. We have a number of services that have emerged directly out of the COVID situation.

Sean Foley: Coming out of COVID, now more than ever, the days of a business checking the box with respect to CCTV and an intrusion alarm and just being done with it are very much over. Our clients - which tend to be larger-scale retailers, QSR organizations, relatively sophisticated asset protection, loss prevention departments - want a lot more out of their solutions.

Whether that is ensuring that they're not getting false alarms and integrating the video solution with alarms, dealing more directly with the rise in ORC and organized retail crime, shoplifting, they're demanding that. They're wanting to get more out of their security investment, and that's what we're providing.

Sunita Mani: Yes, we are seeing increased demand in security services, video analytics and focusing on the underlying network that needs to support these applications. That's where we come in as well.

Global Cyber Rapid Response Force
NATO to create cyber rapid response force, increase cyber defense aid to Ukraine

The references the NATO declaration makes to cybersecurity depart from the past and reflect the increasing importance of cyberdefense to overall security

NATO announced plans Wednesday for a commitment to create a rapid response cyber force and to bolster military partnerships with civil society and industry to respond to cyber threats.

Coming on the heels of a meeting that included leaders from all 30 allied countries, the Madrid summit declaration also said NATO will do more to support Ukraine's cyber resilience and defense against Russia while also focusing on China as a long-term and mounting cyberthreat.

"We are confronted by cyber, space, and hybrid and other asymmetric threats, and by the malicious use of emerging and disruptive technologies," the declaration said. "We face systemic competition from those, including the People's Republic of China, who challenge our interests, security, and values and seek to undermine the rules-based international order."

The declaration's mention of more military collaboration with industry is critical, said Jim Lewis, who directs the Strategic Technologies Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

"Paragraph 10 is the key, since it announces more civil-military cooperation and a rapid reaction force - these were the crucial elements of Ukraine's successful cyber defense," said Lewis, who was previously rapporteur and senior adviser for four U.N. Groups of Governmental Experts on Information Security.

"We will significantly strengthen our cyber defenses through enhanced civil-military cooperation," the declaration says. "We will also expand partnership with industry. Allies have decided, on a voluntary basis and using national assets, to build and exercise a virtual rapid response cyber capability to respond to significant malicious cyber activities." cyberscoop.com

'New Wave of Phishing' Targeting Customers Globally
Cybercriminals use Azure Front Door in phishing attacks
Resecurity, Inc. (USA) has identified a spike in phishing content delivered via Azure Front Door (AFD), a cloud CDN service provided by Microsoft. The identified resources in one of the malicious campaigns impersonated various services appearing to be legitimately created on the "azurefd.net" domain. This allows the bad actors to trick users and spread phishing content to intercept credentials from business applications and e-mail accounts.
Notably, most phishing resources were designed to target SendGrid, Docusign and Amazon customers, along with several other major Japanese and Middle East online-service providers and corporations. According to experts, such tactics confirm how the bad actors are continuously looking to enhance their tactics and procedures to avoid phishing detection using world-known cloud services.

Based on the analyzed phishing templates, the attackers are likely using an automated way to generate their phishing letters, by doing so they're able to scale their campaigns to ultimately target a broader number of customers globally.

Cybersecurity researchers from Resecurity identified multiple domains used in the new wave of phishing attacks dating back to the beginning of June - some of which are obviously hard to differentiate from legitimate correspondence due to their naming and reference to Azure Front Door, what only adds more complexity for defenders.

In one of the phishing episodes, the threat actors impersonated the large business conglomerate Al-Futtaim Group from UAE which was founded in 1930 with over 44,000 employees. The host was created in March 2022 and was used to collect intercepted credentials leveraging spelling with just 1 letter different from the legitimate and official name of Al-Futtaim Group domain name ("alfuttairn[.]com" VS "alfuttaim[.]com"). helpnetsecurity.com

Retail Sales Impacted by Cyberattack
Cyberattack Prevents Macmillan From Shipping Its Books to Retailers

Barnes & Noble CEO doesn't expect publisher's outage to affect retail sales 'unless something cataclysmic has happened'

Macmillan, one of the largest book publishers in the U.S., said it has been hit by a cyberattack, and book retailers nationwide said they were unable to place new orders from the publisher.

Macmillan "recently experienced a security incident, which involves the encryption of certain files on our network," the publisher said Wednesday. "As a precautionary measure, we immediately took systems offline to prevent further impact to our network."

The publisher said it was working to restore its networks, adding that its staff and "other third-party partners may notice that certain systems are unavailable while these efforts are under way."

Several retailers doing business with Macmillan, which is owned by Germany's Verlagsgruppe Georg von Holtzbrinck GmbH, said they were unable to place orders with Macmillan for new titles but customers were unlikely to notice in the short term because of existing inventories.

James Daunt, chief executive of Barnes & Noble, said the problems at Macmillan would have to persist for several weeks before consumers noticed. "I don't think there will be lost sales unless something cataclysmic has happened," he said.

Dennis Abboud, chief executive of Readerlink LLC, which distributes books to big-box retailers including Target Corp. and Walmart Inc., said Readerlink wouldn't lose sales for another week or two. "After that, it gets dicey," he said. wsj.com

Just by sheer word-count, the rule has gone from less than 1,000 words to close to 5,000 words. All those new words mean you probably have some work to do.

Most significantly, the rule now identifies nine elements that must be in a company's information security program, including (i) designating a "qualified individual" to supervise and implement the program, (ii) conducting a thorough risk assessment, (iii) designing and implementing safeguards based on the risk assessment, (iv) monitoring and testing effectiveness of the program, (v) training staff, (vi) monitoring service providers, (vii) keeping the program up-to-date, (viii) implementing an incident response plan, and (ix) reporting to the board of directors. The rule goes into detail on each of these elements, with specific requirements with which companies need to comply. jdsupra.com

TikTok Data Harvesting?
FCC commissioner urges Google, Apple to drop TikTok app

Could Pot Be a Factor in the Crime Surge?
Op-Ed: Cannabis and the Violent Crime Surge

Heavy marijuana use among youths is leading to more addiction and antisocial behavior.

Isn't pot supposed to make you mellow? Maybe if you smoke only a joint on occasion. But youth nowadays are consuming marijuana more frequently and in higher doses than their elders did when they were young. This is leading to increased addiction and antisocial behavior.

AdvertisementTHC, the chemical that causes a euphoric high, interacts with the brain's neuron receptors involved with pleasure. Marijuana nowadays on average is about four times as potent as in 1995. But dabs-portions of concentrated cannabis-can include 20 times as much THC as joints did in the 1960s. It's much easier for young people to get hooked. One in 6 people who start using pot while under 18 will develop an addiction, which doctors call "cannabis use disorder." As they use the drug more frequently to satisfy cravings, they develop psychological and social problems.

Young people are especially vulnerable to cannabis's effects because their brains are still developing. Scientists in a recent study reviewed scans of teenagers' brains before and after they started using pot. They found that parts of the brain involved in decision making and morality judgments were altered in pot users compared to nonusers.

But can pot make people violent? A study last year found that young people with such mood disorders as depression who were also addicted to pot were 3.2 times more likely to commit self-harm and die of homicide-often after initiating violence-than those who weren't. A meta-analysis found the risk of perpetrating violence was more than twice as high for young adults who used marijuana. It's possible that pot can trigger dangerous behavior in youths who may be predisposed to it for other reasons such as prenatal exposure to drugs.

Maybe it's time that lawmakers and voters rethink their pot-legalization experiment before more young lives are damaged. wsj.com

ORC Gangs Targeting Cannabis
New coalition targets spiking organized retail theft of baby formula, cannabis
Washington retailers lost $2.7 billion in merchandise to organized retail theft in 2021, with organized crime rings targeting high-demand consumer items such as baby formula and cannabis. Those thefts often span multiple jurisdictions, prompting the attorney general to coordinate a statewide law enforcement coalition tasked with targeting the responsible crime rings.

Thursday, Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced the Washington Organized Retail Crime Theft Task Force, consisting of local law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys, and local retailers.

Organized crime rings target merchandise that can be resold easily online. Organized retail theft differs from burglary, involving a scheme to defraud retailers instead, often involving intimidation and violence towards store employees.

"Coordination is key to combatting this growing, and sometimes dangerous, problem," Ferguson said Thursday. "These organized crimes cross jurisdictions and cause significant economic harm. I'm committed to working together with law enforcement and retail partners to help combat this significant and growing problem."

The analysis presented by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security detailed the increasing rate of organized theft across the country, with Washington retailers experiencing a 151% increase in organized retail theft, year over year, between 2019 and 2020.

U.S. Attorney Nicholas Brown pointed out that organized retail theft funds "a myriad of other types of crime," including drug and sex trafficking, as well as cyber and wire fraud. mynorthwest.com

Ranking Online Grocery Retailers
H-E-B tops list of most preferred online grocers

The top eight online grocery retailers have twice share of wallet online than those in the bottom third of the rankings.

H-E-B narrowly edged out second-placed Amazon and third-placed Amazon Fresh as the top ranked U.S. e-commerce grocer, according to the inaugural dunnhumby E-commerce Retailer Preference Index (RPI). Walmart landed in the fourth spot and Sam's Club rounded out the top five. Kroger, BJ's, and Sprouts had the next highest scores in the RPI.

H-E-B captured the top ranking due to a number of factors, including having the highest level of emotional connection and online share of wallet among its customer base out of all the retailers studied. Although H-E-B were relatively new to offering online shopping compared to Amazon and Walmart, its customers migrated their spending online the most after the COVID-19 pandemic hit, increasing their grocery spending online by 27% resulting in H-E-B having the highest share of wallet online.

The eight top-performing retailers in this study all have well-established e-commerce capabilities, and most of them also have scale and size enabling them to have more funds to invest in e-commerce and greater operational efficiencies.

In addition, the top eight online grocers leverage their own digital assets, versus relying mostly on intermediaries, which dunnhumby says led to three out of five customers using these assets during their last online trip to any of the top eight.

Walmart, Amazon, and Amazon Fresh are the three top-ranked online grocers for owned digital asset usage. Sam's Club, Amazon Fresh, and Aldi are the top three online grocers for ease and reliability. chainstoreage.com

Roe v. Wade Impacting Amazon Sales
Amazon limits how many Plan B pills you can buy as demand surges

Amazon has placed a limit of three units per week on emergency contraceptive pills sold through its website.

Amazon has limited sales of emergency contraceptive pills as demand spikes following last week's U.S. Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade and ending the constitutional right to have an abortion.

The company has placed a temporary quantity limit of three units per week on emergency contraceptive pills, Amazon confirmed to CNBC.

A review of emergency contraceptive pills sold on Amazon showed varying quantity limits. A listing for Plan B, a popular brand of the drug Levonorgestrel, showed purchases were capped at three products per shopper. Meanwhile, one listing for a generic version of the drug, called My Choice, allowed users to purchase up to 30 units. cnbc.com

Volusia County, FL: Happy 4th: Woman accused of stealing nearly $15,000 worth of fireworks from her job
Volusia County deputies were called to the Four Seasons Fireworks store Monday to look into a theft report. According to the sheriff's office, the store's owner was contacted by another employee days earlier who said one of the managers, identified as 33-year-old Jessica Clark, had asked for help loading a large amount of fireworks into her car. Deputies say the next day, the owner of the store was watching as Clark and the other employee loaded Clark's car with fireworks. The store owner interrupted them and the fireworks were ultimately returned to the store. According to her arrest report, Clark came back the next day and willfully turned over another carload of fireworks that she had previously stolen. On Tuesday, the store owner again contacted deputies to report that Clark had arrived at the business yet again with her car full of stolen fireworks for a third time. That's when deputies say the store owner chose to press charges against her. After interviewing Clark, deputies say she admitted to stealing and returning the fireworks, saying she planned to sell them second-hand to help pay off a large amount of debt. publishedreporter.com

San Diego, CA: Update: Man Sentenced to Life Without Parole for Business Owner's Slaying
A man convicted of fatally shooting an East Village business owner inside the victim's flooring materials store, then making off with cash from the store's register, was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Kevin Eugene Cartwright, 55, was convicted by a San Diego jury earlier this month of first-degree murder and other charges for the Oct. 10, 2018, shooting death of 49-year-old Ghedeer "Tony" Radda at the victim's G Street store, Bottom Price Flooring. In addition to life without parole, San Diego Superior Court Judge Eugenia Eyherabide sentenced Cartwright to an additional 70 years to life for other convicted counts, including a robbery count for an armed holdup in Point Loma, which happened one day prior to Radda's killing. Prior to imposing the sentence, Eyherabide called Radda's slaying "unconscionable" and "pure evil," and asked Cartwright, "For what? A couple thousand bucks, maybe?" sandiegouniontribune.com

Ramsey County, MN: Jurors Acquit man of Murder in scuffle at St. Paul Liquor store
The jury deliberated for 3½ hours before it found Trinis D. Edwards, 50, not guilty in Ramsey County District Court on two counts of second-degree murder for the shooting of Kenneth L. Davis Jr., 44, on the night of Dec. 27 at Big Discount Liquor. Prosecutors said that a store employee told police that Davis, a regular customer, confronted Edwards about concealing vodka without paying for it, then took the bottle from him. Edwards said he had a gun and began digging into his backpack, and Davis replied that he had a license and flashed his gun at Edwards, according to the criminal complaint. The two tussled as they went out the door, and Davis' gun fell to the ground after Edwards pushed him, the charges continued. Edwards picked up the gun, according to the complaint, shot Davis twice and fled without the vodka.

Police interviewed a woman who said she was Edwards' girlfriend, and she told them he shot Davis in self-defense, the complaint read. A statement issued by the County Attorney's Office after the verdict read, "While we are disappointed in the verdict reached in this case, we respect the work of the jury and accept their decision. The death of Mr. Davis remains a tragedy, and our thoughts are with his family and friends." startribune.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

Houston, TX: Grocery store Security Guard fired after confrontation with customer was caught on camera
A store's security guard has been let go from his job after several customers say his actions are simply out of control. According to a customer, the security guard, who is employed by Allied Universal, verbally and physically abused her cousin, who she says is special needs, back on April 13. Kamesha Sterling says she began to record the altercation between her cousin and the guard who reportedly kicked the women out of the store moments after pepper-spraying them. During the altercation, her cousin, Stephanie Teal, could be heard asking the guard, "Why are you doing this to me?" as cell phone video appears to show him dragging Teal out of the store by her hair. "He's like, 'She's stealing!' I say, 'She's not stealing. I have a basket full of groceries, I'm paying for everything,'" customer Sterling added. Another woman says the same security guard called her names while accusing her of shoplifting back on June 21. "You just said I'm Black, and I'm ugly," said shopper Shelondra Peavy. "Yes, I did," the guard reportedly replied.

Advocates such as Quanell X and Dr. Candice Matthews with the Rainbow Push Coalition stood with the women and spoke against the guard's actions, demanding the store respond. On Wednesday night, a spokesperson from Kroger sent KPRC 2 the following statement: "The Allied Universal Security Guard in question will no longer service Kroger stores. We will not tolerate this type of behavior from third-party providers that operate within our stores." click2houston.com
