In the great big world of loss prevention we sometimes overlook the importance of clothing security . Let’s be honest, if it can be sold there is undoubtedly going to be someone who will want to steal it. They will jump through flaming hoops and concoct any imaginable scheme to get away with your goods. So let’s get back to basics; let’s make the merchandise unattractive to the criminals. Now, I’m not talking about filling your racks with leisure suits and polyester shirts with butterfly collars. I’m talking about properly protecting your items with ink tags, hard tags, lanyards, cable locks and anything else that will make a thief’s job more difficult.
Always remember, thieves are lazy. If they weren’t then they’d have good paying jobs and be able to buy the things that they want rather than searching for that “five finger discount”. This laziness causes them to always take the path of least resistance. In other words, why would they go through the trouble of having to attempt to disable ink tags and security tags on clothes or snip wires when they can simply go down the street to another retailer who doesn’t take clothing security quite as seriously?
Studies show that the average American family spends nearly $29,000 a year on clothing. The demand is astounding. The shoplifter’s demand mirrors that of the average person. Therefore, if you’re a supplier it simply makes sense to take every precaution to ensure that your product stays on the shelf long enough to be sold legitimately to the honest, hard-working people in our society. No question about it, if you’re a clothing retailer then clothing security should be high on your list of priorities. After all, security tags on clothes will keep your hard earned money on the your bottom line!
