Chapter 652 – Killing many birds with one stone
“Eh, have you read the evening papers? The City Bureau had ajoint operation with Tai Hua Supermarket and busted a thieve syndicate. Thehigher-ups said that this syndicate if from other provinces. They saw Tai HuaSupermarket had good business, so they went there to steal. But in the end, oneof them was caught by the Supermarket securities, and the City Bureau leaderleads his men to arrest more than 30 people!”
“Really? I will buy a copy later. These thieves were toomuch. They should be punished severely.” One of them angrily replied. He hadbeen pickpocketed before when he had gotten his salary.
“This time, these people will be punished severely. I heardthat this syndicate was involved in many other crimes. The lowest punishmentfor them is at least 1 year in the labor camps. The City Bureau really did agreat job. This is what the police should do!”
“I feel it is the security guards at Tai Hua Supermarket whohad done a good job. They are the ones that caught the thief. The last time Iwent to XX shopping mall, my wallet was stolen, and that mall did not evencare. Tai Hua Supermarket is much better.”
“That’s right. Tai Hua Supermarket sells things cheaper thanother places too. If you buy a lot of stuff, you can save up to 100 RMB!”
“Ya. I had received a promotional brochure yesterday. Therewill be a sale this coming weekend.”
“Really? There is another sale this weekend? I thought lastweek there was a sale? Why do they have sales every week?”
“Who knows? Anyway, we will be the ones who will benefitfrom this. I will be going this weekend. Are you going?”
“Yes. Even if I am not getting anything, window shoppingthere is also fine. That place is too spacious.”
Brother Hei and his accomplices were arrested, and Chief Lipurposely let others know that they were detained at Tai Hua Supermarket. Thiswas a form of deterrence to other thieves.
This was a warning to all criminals that they should nottarget Tai Hua Supermarket!
Feng Yu had also used his connections to publish thisincident in the evening newspapers. On the one hand, it was to praise the CityPolice Bureau and the local Police, especially Chief Li. The other hand, it wasto publicize Tai Hua Supermarket. Lastly, it was to spread the news to anycriminals that Tai Hua Supermarket was not to be trifled with.
When this news was published, Chief Li immediately calledFeng Yu to thank him. This article will increase the Police and his reputation.Although he will not be promoted directly, the higher-ups will notice and havea good impression of him.
There were a lot of stolen goods recovered from thisoperation. The owner of most of these goods could not found, and the policeprocedure was to take care of these internally. A portion of the recovered goodswill be handed over to the City Bureau and the rest split between the policestations. The local police stations will have more funds, and the policeofficers became more motivated.
You want the police officers to work harder and be moremotivated, but their reimbursements were delayed for a few months. How couldthey be motived and be passionate in their job?
All criminals knew about Tai Hua Supermarket because of thisreport. Although there was a constant crowd at Tai Hua Supermarket, the thieveswill still avoid this place because of Brother Hei.
In the past, the punishment for stealing was at most lock upfor 3 to 5 days. The more severe cases were also 2 weeks. But Brother Hei andhis accomplices were charged in court!
This was only petty theft, and it should not be so severe.
But even if these criminals did not know what happensexactly, but this was the truth. The article had said that all 30 over peoplein the syndicate will be sentenced to jail.
This Tai Hua Supermarket is a scary place which no one daresto go near.
Beijing was a big place. Other than Tai Hua Supermarket,there were still many places for them to steal. Those places will not be soscary.
The newspaper report also reported that Tai HuaSupermarket’s security guards were all ex-soldiers. All of them were fit andagile.
If a thief were caught, they would be beaten up by thesecurity officers. This was a common practice.
The police also knew about this. But they will not care. Ifthe public saw this, it will be worst. The public will also join in to beat upthe thief!
Overall, thieves will get the worst treatment among allcriminals.
Tai Hua Supermarket also created publicity for thisincident. They told this incident in the form of a story over the radio. Thename, Tai Hua Supermarket was repeated several times in the story. They wantedto let the name of their supermarket stick with the listeners.
As long as the listeners were curious about thissupermarket, they will visit when they pass by Tai Hua Supermarket. They willbecome Tai Hua Supermarket customers unknowingly.
Those who had visited Tai Hua Supermarket will still want tovisit that place again. There was always something on promotion.
Actually, Tai Hua Supermarket has promotional items every day.This was set even before their opening. There were a wide variety of products,and every day, these brands will take turns to have promotions.
Today it is your turn, and you must have a specialpromotional price for your products even if you are not willing. It’s not yourturn, and you want to promote your products? No problem. Pay up first!
No matter what, the supermarket will have profits. The costof the promotions will be bored by the brands. This will also increase thecustomers, sales, reputation for the supermarket.
Every week, new promotions leaflets will be printed. Also,during festive seasons, there will be more programs for shoppers. These wereall arranged by supermarket managers.
As the shoppers of the supermarket’s increases, coupled withthis incident, people knew that the security at Tai Hua Supermarket is excellentand there were more enquires about the empty shop spaces in the Tai HuaSupermarket.
In the past, many people felt the rent was too high. Also,Tai Hua Supermarket Corporation had a condition which put off many potentialcustomers. But these people saw the traffic and security at Tai Hua Supermarket,and they changed their minds.
No matter how good a product was, no businessmen would selltheir products at a low human traffic place.
These businessmen thought the crowd at Tai Hua Supermarketwould only last for a few days after their opening and there will not be somany shoppers after that. The craze will die off eventually. This was normal.
But soon they realized that Tai Hua Supermarket haspromotions every day. Although the number of shoppers was not as high as thefirst few days, it was still very high. During weekends, the number of shopperswas almost like the opening day.
This was an excellent location to set up their shops. Thesebusinessmen no longer hesitate. They approached Tai Hua Supermarket Corporationto try to rent some shop spaces. The first few to contact were some jewelry andaccessories businessmen. They were satisfied with the traffic and security atTai Hua Supermarket and feel safe to set up their shops there.
These shops were the most concern with safety and security.They were assured at Tai Hua Supermarket!
“Manager Feng, after we publicized our security officers hadcaught the thief, many companies had approached us to rent the shops. I thinkall our shops will be rented out within this month. We also do not need tolower the rents!”
“Ok. Choose those reputable companies and brands. We mustnot let our reputation be tarnish because of profits. You should be moreexperience at this than me. I will leave everything to you.”
If this matter could be handled by others, Feng Yu would notdo it himself. This was why these people were hired.
A thief was caught in their supermarket, and this should notbe a good thing. But who would expect things to turn out this way?
