TARGET: ANTI-THEFT STICKERS ON ONLY SOME FOUNDATIONS!!!

Whoa! I read this morning that shoppers are really miffed that Target has only placed anti-theft stickers on the darker shades of foundations. Did they not expect backlash?

Is it possible that they put anti-theft stickers on all of their shades, sold out of the lighter ones, and then failed to put anti-theft stickers on the shades they re-stocked?

They only put anti-theft devices on certain darker shades. Shameful.

 

Walmart has done this too - going so far as to lock up only certain hair care products that are very cheap to begin with.

Stores have ways of tracking sales and inventory. Is it possible only some shades were unaccounted for? If so, they did what they needed to do. Honestly, this sounds like a financial issue pure and simple.

 I read the article.  It sounds upsetting.  But the last part of the article was about a similar gripe with U.K. retailer Boots, and the article said this:

 

 

Boots responded by saying it attached security tags to all products it believed were being stolen.

"(We) do this regardless of what the product is, the cost of it, or which aisle they are on," the retailer said.

@mistriTsquirrel   No chance. Darker shades were specifically mentioned w/ photo.

@MJ12   That's the photo that accompanied the article this morning. I'm horrified! What are they thinking?

@stevieb   So as not to discriminate, if there's a theft issue, put the darn stickers on ALL shades. It's just not right. There are enough issues like this already.

I totally agree, what were they thinking ?
