Congrats 2016! You did it!!!

According to the National Retail Federation… 2016 will go down as the year where the most shoplifting occurred.  In 2016, the rate of “shrinkage,” or inventory that goes missing for any reason, increased to 1.44% of all sales.  That totals to almost 49 billion dollars worth of merchandise.
