Thief found a rare shop as­sis­tant

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

JUST read the ar­ti­cle about the near theft at Ana­conda and you would have to say the thief was un­lucky to ride into a shop as­sis­tant.

I was in there re­cently buy­ing a pair of walk­ing shoes and it was dif­fi­cult to find a shop as­sis­tant. Had to ask at the check- out counter if they would call for some­one to help me. An as­sis­tant came and she showed me a pair of the style that I had asked for but they were the wrong size. By this time she had dis­ap­peared, but I man­aged to lo­cate a pair my size and made the pur­chase.

It is ob­vi­ous the thief had cased the store as there are not many shop as­sis­tants on the floor and one won­ders how they make any sales at all. I do not con­done shoplift­ing as I have worked in the in­dus­try and shoplift­ing is a huge blight on re­tail­ing.
