Anyone who thinks it is not important to put security tags on clothes will not be in business long. Clothes are perhaps the easiest items to steal. Think about it. The most obvious shoplifting advantage is fitting rooms. Only clothing retailers have fitting rooms where shoplifters can conceal product in complete privacy. All other retailers force shoplifters to at least steal on the floor where they can be observed either in person or on camera. Secondly, no one questions the clothes people wear. This means shoplifters can simply change clothes or put unpaid for clothes on over what they are wearing and it draws no attention.
In other retailers shoplifters have to carry bags, dress unseasonably or walk around with huge bulges under their clothes (where they have concealed product). All of these things are dead giveaways to store personnel who are trained in shoplifting detection. So with all that being said, it is definitely important to put security tags on clothes.
One of the top options to add clothing security to your store is by using clothing security tags. One maker of clothing security is Checkpoint. Checkpoint tags are a very reliable product that is well known by shoplifters. When used with the clothing alarm, the Checkpoint tags will set off the clothing alarm when someone tries to leave with unpaid for merchandise. This will give your associates the ability to potentially recover the merchandise or at least recognize the shoplifter and be ready the next time he/she comes in. The other benefit is the deterrent effect. When a would-be shoplifter sees an associate respond to a clothing alarm it lets them know up front that they will be noticed. This in many cases will cause that person to leave your products alone and attempt theft somewhere less risky.
