Only one QFC employee’s opinion, but this SeattleCrime brief on yet another QFC shoplifter caught in the act seems to put words to the anecdotal evidence we’ve seen that the store gets more than its fair share of freeloaders:
“QFC has been victim of more frequent shoplifts as of late,” the QFC employee later told officers, adding that “shoplift suspects are becoming more bold.”
One possible quibble in the ‘more frequent’ choice of language, though. Can’t recall a time when we didn’t see QFC shoplifters in the SPD reports. Here’s a search on past CHS posts including the terms QFC + shoplift.
