It is a sad state of affairs when we have to do a report of what are the most shoplifted items of the holiday season. According to Fortune, stolen items during this time of year are a $6 billion dollar problem for retailers. Six billion. At this time of year, stores generate 34% of their yearly sales, but lose 37% to 'shrinkage', which is a nice way of saying 'theft'. Yikes! Below are the most shoplifted items during the holiday season. And remember....Santa Claus is watching you.
