Perhaps this is news..but it seems more like surreal comedy. But if Stanford Shopping Center management, and the individual retailers can't putchase surveillance equipment--then they deserve what they get.

Probably should start watching Craig's List for an announcement about a good deal on women's underware.

Will be interesting to see if anyoe in the Victoria's store gets a bonus this Christmas.

$61 per bra is ridiculous! Who are the real thieves here?

They never look as good as they do on the models. Save your money gals.

@anon,

No thieves, just fools parting with their money.

Of course the bras look better on the models. The models have implants, real women usually do not!

I think I remember reading about the same thing happening a few years ago there-maybe the same thieves?

Wow they lost $ 11,000 in merchandise. What about the slave labors they pay only 4 cents an hour to sew their merchandise. Goggle it yourself "Victoria Secret & Slave Labor". Who's the real thieves?

Never having been a girlie girl myself, I am disgusted by this: People spend $61.11 for a bra? This culture's priorities are upside down. Whenever I see someone holding a Victoria's Secret shopping bag, I see someone who has been bamboozled.

You mean $11.000 retail value. In reality $200 worth of merchandise lost.
String them together and someones got a nice sling shot.

Wonderful Stanford Mall Leadership....the public would prefer that you place video surveillance in the parking areas and the stores rather than fill the planter boxes for the next year....

"Wrap? No, thanks, I'll eat them here...."

Ah, the classics (from 6th grade.)

To the Editor:

Thank you for cleaning up the comments. I'm relieved to see they have gone poof.

Absolutely!

And the same is true for those who bought 7-figure Eichlers and $3000 bicycles.
