At the company I work for clothing security tags play a large role in making sure we keep shoplifting incidents to a minimum and go a long way to protect our profits. We use Checkpoint tags on a regular basis and, though our clothes come in from the vendor with the tags on, we still have to put the security tags on clothes that are returned by our customers before the merchandise heads back out to the floor. Here are some easy tricks I found that helped me to train the sales staff where to place the clothing security tags and how to take them on and off for our customers.
1. Host a clothing alarm contest. Dress a mannequin in a number of pieces of merchandise and ask your sales people to guess which items have security tags on them that would need to be removed. Provide a prize like a candy bar for everyone who gets the right answer.
2. Have a race to see who can most quickly remove Checkpoint tags from items at point of sale. Missing tags that needed to be removed loses points. Tags removed are one point each. The one with the most points at the end of the time frame is the winner.
3. Pin security tags on clothes. Take photographs of popular clothing items and ask your sales force to “pin” the tags on the clothes. Provide incentives for participation and post the right answers afterwards so everyone can learn.
