Even though it is rare to catch a customer actually wearing the clothes they are attempting to return, tampered Wardrobing Tags are the next best thing to catching them in the act. Alpha Shark Tags may not be able to tell you what the customer did with the clothes after they left the store, but they can decrease the likelihood that they were worn and then returned.
The Alpha Shark Tags help to reinforce your store’s return policy. Because the red tags simply can not be removed or reattached without showing signs of tampering, it is a fool proof way for your employees to determine if the clothing can be returned or not.
At one time, we employed a door guard whose job it was to greet customers, answer alarm activations, and to validate returns coming into the store. One day he told me about a girl that came in to return an outfit along with some nail polish. As she showed my employee the receipt and the bottle she was returning, told her that the color was really pretty and almost like the color she was wearing on her nails. It was a classic case of wardrobing retail.
Now this girl quickly changed her story and backtracked saying that she wasn’t going to return the nail polish, but she knew she was caught. She ended up leaving with all of the merchandise because her nails gave her away. Alpha Shark Tags would have prevented the outfit from being returned had we used them. If the girl had removed her polish before she came in, we never would have known she was wardrobing.
