According to Cina, due to these incidents, the market industry of New York decided to form an alliance named the Collective Action to Protect Our Stores (CAPS). The alliance is headed by the founding members and independent stores of the National Supermarket Association, the Metro Supermarket Association, and the Bodega and Small Business Group.

According to CAPS, the alliance is calling for prosecutors to bring forth the “harm on harm” doctrine to target the thieves and for the district attorneys and the New York Police Department to assign units to address the situation. CAPS also suggests that purchasing stolen groceries must be labeled as a Class A misdemeanor which should earn penalties and a short sentence in prison.
