A common way for customers to steal clothing from businesses is to sack up the clothing and then walk out of the store. They have the appearance of a customer that has paid, but they in fact either brought in their own sacks for the business or swiped some off of an unattended outlying register. This type of theft is also more common as customers shift their focus to sustainability and reusable shopping bags become increasingly popular.
There is a very effective way to combat this type of shoplifter, however. Security tags on clothes are a great deterrent to the shoplifter that tries to sack their unpaid merchandise and walk out of the business. Clothing security tags are removed with a key by the cashier at the time of purchase, so by bypassing the purchasing, these tags remain on the clothes. Additionally, when that thief does his or her casual walk out of the store, a clothing alarm will sound when the clothing is too close to the exit. That happening is a worst nightmare for the shoplifter.
Clothing security is well worth the investment in order to help prevent these types of thefts. Shoplifters are only successful if they do not have employees’ attention, and clothing security tags will bring that unwanted attention if they are not removed at the registers. Shoplifters also need to be able to operate smoothly and quickly, not fighting for hours trying to figure out how to remove clothing security tags before stealing an item.
Security tags on clothes help prevent this type of shoplifting, as well as more traditional shoplifting techniques. Investing in your profits with clothing security will boost your bottom line, decrease your loss due to theft, and send the shoplifters on to the next unprotected business.
