Imagine for a moment that you are shopping at your local department store and have found a pair of jeans that you just can’t live without. The only problem is you are on a limited budget and have plans to go to the movies with your best friend later that night. You know that those jeans would be perfect for your night out so you decide that you need to steal them. You heard that some stores put security tags on clothes but you doubt they actually work. As you are picking out the perfect pair of jeans you hear the clothing alarm going off at the front of the store. You quickly turn your attention to the front doors and you see an associate politely checking a customer as he was about to exit the building. The customer looks embarrassed and quickly hands the associate a shirt that clearly wasn’t paid for. You now glance at the pair of jeans you thought would be an easy target and see a clothing security tag. You carry the jeans to the nearest point of sale register and purchase them. You decide the movie can wait until next week.
As you can see in the above example clothing security not only prevented a theft but actually added to sales. There are several types of clothing alarm systems available depending on the needs of your company. Hard tags are a visible deterrent and are securely attached to merchandise by a locking pin. Soft tags are a less visible option and can be applied to just about any type of merchandise by use of an adhesive backing. Many retailers place soft tags inside the pockets of their merchandise in order to offer security without distracting from the product. All types of clothing security tags require removal or deactivation at the register and provide a 24/7 deterrent to theft. Industry loss Prevention professionals understand that the use of security tags on clothes offers an element of protection that reduces shrink and keeps merchandise on the shelves for our paying customers.
