  1. How can you not see this happening before he could leave the store ?? Workers lazy or playing around, chatting not keeping their eyes open just to look around, this would not have happened. Especially the holidays and cold weather near, well I hope he gave those coats to the homeless people who needs them because the store will not resell them when he’s caught with these coats, but catch this man, this is not okay to Steal .
