WASHINGTON — The number of retailers victimized by organized retail crime groups increased in the past year, as criminal gangs became increasingly more brazen and violent in their quest to steal a wide range of popular consumer products, the National Retail Federation said in its annual report.
The NRF’s eighth annual study revealed that of the 125 retailers surveyed, 96 percent said they had been the victim of organized retail crime in the past year, up from 94.5 percent last year. Another 87 percent said organized retail crime has increased in the past three years.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
