A brazen shoplifter picked the wrong target when she attempted to walk out of a women’s clothing boutique with an armful of merchandise and was met with physical resistance, as Tiger TV reports.

In a cell phone video of the altercation (see below), Abby Bullock, the owner of the Wanderlust By Abby shop in Baton Rouge, LA, is seen struggling with the thief to take back her merchandise.

“I got every single thing from her,” Bullock told the outlet. “It added up to be like $650 worth of stuff, which for big companies isn’t a big deal, but for a small business, it’s huge.”

Bullock called the incident a learning experience and said she has taught her employees how to handle shoplifters.

“I started this store from the back of my Forerunner, and it’s just grown, and I’ve put in so much work, so every little piece of this store is literally a part of me,” she said.

When the Kids Have Their Own Careers, Wilkerson Can Help You to Retire

Alex and Gladys Rysman are the third generation to run Romm Jewelers in Brockton, Mass. And after many decades of service to the industry and their community, it was time to close the store and take advantage of some downtime. With three grown children who each had their own careers outside of the industry, they decided to call Wilkerson. Then, the Rysmans did what every jeweler should do: They called other retailers and asked about their own Wilkerson experience. “They all told us what a great experience it was and that’s what made us go with Wilkerson.” says Gladys Rysman. The results? Alex Rysman says he was impressed. “We exceeded whatever I expected to do by a large margin.”
