Giant Food Theft

The Lempert Report
September 12, 2023

Giant Food has decided, because of the theft problem that they have in their Washington DC store, to remove many national brand health and beauty care products from its shelves. They're replacing them with private label items at an effort to deter theft. So what's confusing to me is that, yes, store brands are slightly cheaper than name brands, but what they're removing is Tide laundry detergent, Schick razor blades, Dove soap, Degree deodorant and Pantene shampoo, but I'm not sure that this solves the problem of theft. They're also hiring guards to check your cash register receipt as you leave the store.
