highforthis saidObviously referring to the church/carlton one. I got sushi from the canteen, ate there at the tables and had the barcode on the empty box scanned along with my groceries when I left. What if I just threw away the box at some point? It looks like something anyone can so easily get away with!
Grocery stores actually have the narrowest of profit margins, at about approximately 3%.
You shouldn't steal food if you can afford it. But if you can't, I say go for it if you're in a Loblaw's, especially since the CEO is Galen Weston Jr. and the dude a Canadian billionaire and inherited it all from his father. He also came down hard last spring on saying that food at Farmer's Markets that's locally grown can pose a health hazard to consumers -- when coincidentally the opposite
is true, and his
stores are a huge source of food hazards, including the Loblaw's closest to my house where... wait for it.. people needed to be evacuated because of a chemical leak.
