The growing Loss Prevention Furniture Alliance (LPFA) met October 8–9 in Columbus, OH, to discuss challenges in their retail segment and share solutions. Many informative topics were covered during the two-day meeting including e-commerce fraud, active shooter incidents, and background screening changes.

The Alliance wishes to give a special thank you to the vendors who supported the meeting—Tony Casper of Safe Passage (Active Shooter), Doug Grissom and Terry Bangasser of Innovis, and Bernie Pack of Accurate Information Systems.

The LPFA is planning their next meeting for June 2020 in Pittsburgh, PA, adjacent to the NRF Protect Conference June 22–24. Any furniture retailers or vendors interested in this group may contact one of the group co-facilitators: Patrick Burns of Bob’s Discount Furniture at patrick.burns@mybobs.com or Mike Case of Art Van Furniture at mcase@artvan.com.
