Security tags on clothes are a good idea if you operate a business that sells these items. Clothing security is important to maximize profits and reduce loss associated with theft.
One common way that a shoplifter will steal is by using your fitting room to conceal your merchandise. A shoplifter is well aware that there are no cameras in there, and that no one can see them. To prevent this, a business must have policies and procedures in place…and be willing to enforce them! Make sure your fitting rooms are locked at all times, and only unlocked by one of your employees when a customer is requesting to try something on. Also, make sure that your employees physically handle the clothing that the customer is taking into the room, and that the employee stays in the area to make sure what goes in comes out. If the shoplifter makes it inside the fitting room with what he or she wants to take…say goodbye to the profit on that merchandise.
Some shoplifters are content to conceal merchandise out on your sales floor, when they believe that none of your employees are looking. Clothing security needs to be a consideration when setting up your business. Clothing is easy to steal – what measures are you going to take to prevent it from walking out your doors?
Many businesses choose security tags on clothes to help prevent theft. A shoplifter who realizes that you have this type of clothing security will move on to the next business that does not.
