Having a clothing alarm is a smart business move for businesses wishing to protect their assets. Clothing is supposed to be for sale…not free for the taking.
The theft of clothing in a retail environment is unfortunately simple and very common. Clothes can be folded up, or wadded up, and slipped easily inside of a large purse or backpack. They can also be worn out of the store by simply putting them on under clothing. Another shoplifting theft I’ve witnessed is a customer entering a store without a coat, and then wearing one out. If your employees are busy helping other customers, even this brazen a theft can go unnoticed.
Businesses cannot afford to do nothing to help prevent this type of theft. A clothing alarm can be beneficial in deterring the theft of the clothing you sell. A potential shoplifter will come into your business, see that you have this security measure…and then they will move on to the next business.
Shoplifters want to have to spend only a very short amount of time prepping merchandise in order to steal it. They also do not want to draw attention to themselves. Taking the time to try to remove a clothing alarm is not something most shoplifters are willing to do. Risking an audible alarm if they leave with the clothing is also a chance many shoplifters will not take.
Shoplifters are not the types of customers you want to have in your store. And higher prices to recoup the loss from shoplifting are not what you or your customers would like either. A clothing alarm helps keep the shoplifters away and profits where you’d like them to be.
