With clothing, shoplifters may put on items from the store and leave the store wearing the clothes.
The terms "shoplifting" and "shoplifter" are not usually defined in law.
Some stores might even closed down because of shoplifters making the store go bankrupt.
The stores usually raise there prices and then causes more shoplifting, but the people that don’t shoplift just end up having to pay more for the product or else go somewhere else to shop.
Just shoplifting from that store will prevent you from getting a job there ever or any of that kind if it is a chain.
Just the fact of breaking the law while shoplifting should be bad enough reason not to do it.
It helps out the community service areas if you have to do community service while the culprit is stuck doing numerous hours of work, without any pay, but it doesn’t help you at all.
Shoplifting can also affect you towards the community, because if you have shoplifting on your record it will be difficult to get a job, some don’t want people who break the law working for them.
If the customer goes to a different store because of the rising prices the store will also lose business therefore could cause them to go out of business if enough customers leave.
From shoplifting I’ve found out what happens to the stores and the people that keep trying to get five finger discount on products.
