If you own a business that sells clothing, chances are that you own a business that loses clothing too. If you do not have the luxury of having Loss Prevention in your store you must rely on two things to reduce your shrink/loss: Customer Service, and Deterrence. Clothing security encompasses a couple of tactics.
First, having security tags on clothes is vital as a visual deterrent. Shoplifters are less likely to steal merchandise if they notice clothing security tags on it such as checkpoint tags. Checkpoint tags are tags that clip onto clothing and sound an alarm once they pass a certain checkpoint (the door alarms). These tags go hand in hand with a clothing alarm. This brings me to my second method of clothing security.
A clothing alarm is a device set up by the exit doors that look like metal detectors. They activate and let off a loud noise when it senses merchandise with checkpoint tags still attached. Throughout my experience as a Loss Prevention Officer, I can tell you that the one thing a shoplifter hates is being noticed. And he or she will be noticed standing at a door with alarms going off.
Deterrence is extremely important in order to minimize loss and maximize profit. Investing in clothing security tags such as checkpoint tags, making sure proper placement of security tags on clothes, and having a clothing alarm to compliment the security devices are essential parts of maintaining clothing security.
