by shoplifting an item, you possibly make the store go bankrupt because they have to pay for the product to be bought by consumers and it increases the cost of everything they sell because they have to raise prices to make up for the stolen stuff

It affects you because when caught for shoplifting, the authorities may or not be involved and can cause you to get in heaps of more trouble. If you have a family member that works in law or retail they could get fired because of the untrustworthy background from the one thing you did.
