A couple of early morning window shoppers keen for Salvatore Ferragamo's new season's stock hammered their way into the store to bundle up armloads of stock, mainly handbags and wallets, in an early morning break and enter.
According to a report in Melbourne's Herald Sun this morning, this is the second time Ferragamo has been targeted in less than a month.
Very often there is a pattern with these smash and grabs the general modus operandi is to smash windows or glass panelled entry doors. The learned thieves seem to know how long it takes to replace security glass or have security film applied from regular glass, and often strike again knowing regular glass has been installed as a temporary measure. There is also a tendency to move up or down the same street... so this is a call to other brands in Collins Street, check your gaps and be vigilant with your security. Even though with some brands January is markdown time, this is definitely not a good way to reduce inventory...
