  1. So, who is Bassali? The owner? Manager? Not mentioned.

    But that’s beside the point. Good luck getting these criminals to return the goods. Hope it happens, but it’s pretty rare when a criminal takes a chance at redemption. But, hey…it can happen.
    And if it does happen, I hope Bassali lets us know.

    “Retailer of The Year” may not be in Bassali’s future.

  3. The employees SAW them stealing things??? Don’t tell me the employees were too afraid to, oh, I don’t know, stop them? If they have been told to just let people steal things, not say a word against it, not try to apprehend the thieves, then that doesn’t sound like a good business practice. Pull out your gun and shoot ’em. (or if you don’t want to shoot, at least scare them out of the store)
