retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Los Angeles Times reports that an Arkansas woman was arrested in Springdale, Arkansas, “on a misdemeanor charge of larceny theft. She is accused of stealing copies of old Sunday newspapers in order to bulk up her collection of coupons and save her family some money.

The papers being stolen were unsold Sunday papers stuffed with FSIs that were gathered up by stores and left for the publishers to pick up; the woman reportedly was getting to them first so she could satisfy her “extreme couponing” habit.
