If Duane Reade became an online-only retailer, they would no longer have to worry about the shoplifting that plagues their brick-and-mortar locations. In the first of three separate incidents in just the past fortnight, two women and a man entered the Duane Reade at 2025 Broadway at 10 p.m. on Jan. 28, and grabbed $3,700 worth of Allegra and other medications.
Then at 8 a.m. on Jan. 31, a man stole $1,008 worth of makeup in the Duane Reade at 1889 Broadway.
Finally, four men entered the Duane Reade store at 2069 Broadway at 10 p.m. on Feb. 4, and made off with $1,036 worth of toothbrushes.Hung Out to Cry
