RCC hosting theft and safety roundtable in JanuaryJanuary 10, 2020
Retail owners and their employees in Winnipeg have been facing increasingly violent and erratic theft activity in their stores. Last year, an estimated $200 million was shoplifted from Manitoba stores, which increases costs for both retailers and shoppers, and ultimately all Manitobans through lost taxes.
Retail Council of Canada continues to work very diligently to address the theft and safety issues our Retailers are facing in Winnipeg today. With that goal, RCC is collaborating with key stakeholders in the province to find solutions to the rising theft, including leading a coalition of business associations hosting a Manitoba Retail Crime Round Table on January 31, 2020.
