Do clothing retailers really love the clothing alarm? I can’t say for sure, but I can tell you that since clothing security tags have been available for the clothing retailer, they have been a leader in clothing security standards.
The clothing alarm was a unique item the first time I saw one. I was fascinated at how little the clothing alarm was and affects it had at providing clothing security. Shoplifters look for the quick and easy way to get in and out of a store without being noticed. Outside of getting the merchandise, privacy is the key to a successful shoplift. The security tags on clothes take away that privacy. I will never forget the look on the face of the first shoplifter I saw attempt to defeat a clothing alarm. As I sat and watched on CCTV, a two man team entered the clothing department, jeans. They noticed the clothing security on the product but were unaware of the fact these guards were alarms. As one of the thieves worked on the device with pliers, the alarm activated. REEEEEK!!! The alarm sounded. Instantly the two shoplifters looked like keystone cops, running into each other attempting to get away from the merchandise as quickly as possible. Still as funny today as it was then.
If you are a new or existing clothing retailer, I encourage you to do your homework on clothing security. In fact, security tags on clothes are a great idea if you plan to stock large amounts of merchandise on the salesfloor. Clothing security tags are an obvious presence and may provide the visual deterrence your store may need. Security tags on clothes have been around for many years and will benefit your business. If you are in the market for clothing security, trust me… use clothing security tags.
