Even though it’s still cold outside, many clothing retailers are marking down the cold weather product and making way for the new spring collections. For most it is also the beginning of the new fiscal year so the time to add clothing security, such as clothing security tags and a clothing alarm, is now. Here are the reasons why.
First, putting security tags on clothes is not really an option if you want to keep profits high. Shoplifting is at an all-time high and not store is immune. To add to the already theft laden market, warm weather clothes are the easiest to steal. It is pretty conspicuous when someone puts on a second jacket and tries to walk out. It is also obvious when large sweaters are stuffed under someone’s shirt. What is not obvious is when that women puts on a high dollar bikini and walks out. The customer who pockets the new sunglasses or steals a pair of shorts is not obvious. The smaller / skimpier products are just plain easier to steal and must be protected.
Since we have to put security tags on clothes I suggest using Checkpoint tags. Checkpoint tags are cost effective. Checkpoint tags are also reliable and known to shoplifters so they are a great theft deterrent. You will also need a clothing alarm from Checkpoint as well so that when the customer tries to walk out with concealed product you will be alerted and can respond to the potential theft.
The second reason to get your clothing security now is that it is the beginning of the year. The price of this investment isn’t going to change so by making this acquisition at the beginning of the year you get to reap the benefits of your investment for the full year instead of only part of the year. It just makes sense to get your full money’s worth by buying sooner rather than later.
