ICYMI: Idaho thieves are too classy to steal from the Walmart

But they ain't too classy to roll back them prices to $Free.99 at Tarjay. Listen, we knew the Walmart-Target divide was real, but we never imagined it was as thick as thieves 🙃

We suppose it makes sense. No matter how long, short, or non-existent someone's rap sheet is, everyone has preferences. Take cereal for example. Some people would sooner die than buy a bag of generic cereal, while others say there's no difference and cheer for the resealable bag it comes in.

Theft is one of the oldest trades in the book. 

Folks have acquired what doesn't rightfully belong to them since the beginning of mankind. Heck, even the Man Upstairs took a rib from Adam to create Eve. On second thought, probably not the best example to have gone with...

Today, no one's stealing for the betterment of humanity. Regardless of their financial circumstances they're helping themselves to products and every-day items the rest of us are paying for. And unfortunately, shrink inventory has become one of the biggest thorns in Target's bottomline.

In 2022, theft cost Target over $760 million. Two years later, it's a trend theHustle predicts is here to stay. From Idaho to the Carolinas, five-finger discounts are driving up the cost of Target's inventory while paying customers foot the bill that covers the difference.
