Wardrobing is not just about the customers who are in your store. It is also about customers who do any kind of online or mail order shopping. I never thought about those ramifications until I was presented with an unfortunate situation as a customer.
I recently bought a dress. Since I made the purchase online I never worried that the dress may have been involved in any wardrobing before I bought it. I didn’t realize that some companies send merchandise straight from a store, instead of out of a warehouse.
Once I received the dress in the mail, I went to try it on and there was a huge smudge of makeup all inside the dress. Ugh. After calling customer service, I was given two options, return the dress or keep the dress with an extra ten percent discount. Since I really wanted the dress and the discount would cover dry cleaning, I went with option number two.
One of two things had happened. The make up came from a customer trying the dress on, oblivious to the damage she did, or it came from a customer who was wardrobing.
Either way, the company lost out. They were shorted the discount that they gave me. Additionally, they lost me as a customer (and all the money I am spending elsewhere) because it was not worth the potential hassle to order anything from them again.
