Shoplifting and pilfering on the rise

22 November 2010

Business consulting company AstroTech has warned that there has been a marked increase in pilfering and theft among retail staff.

The consultancy said this, along with shoplifting, is expected to rise as the festive season draws closer.

AstroTech’s Liza van Wyk reported that they have noticed retail workers are also behind this type of crime.

“What the shop assistant will do, is offer the customer to purchase the item at the lower price than what the shop is selling it for,” she said.
