Risks of 'catching' 'em young….?

News that a five-year-old boy has won a defamation case against Lidl, when wrongly accused of stealing a pack of crisps, makes apprehending 'shrinkers' more of a judgement call…
Incremental sales required to recover the loss of a 50p pack of crisps for a retailer on 2% net profit are £25.
However, getting it wrong can mean that extra sales of €375,000 are needed when the court awards €7,500 ex costs….
Have a great lidl weekend, from the Namnews Team!
