Shoplifting is an increasing problem in not just Launceston, but across the entire state.

Fed up with thieves deciding they’re entitled to products free of charge, many business owners came together at the CityProm offices last night to discuss what can be done to help the police stop these offenders.

Local business owner, Rod Patterson from Autobarn joins Fairsy this morning for his Big Breakfast, opening up about the issue.

"People think shoplifting is $10 here or $20 there, I know people that are losing $20,000-$30,000 a year…that’s nearly a wage," he says.

"If we don’t address this, we’re putting people’s jobs at jeopardy."
