Clothing security tags play a vital role in mitigating shoplifting by the majority of non- professional shoplifters. There are the shoplifters who steal out of need, or want, not necessarily to make a profit or a living off of the stolen goods.
Because much of the theft reported nation wide comes out of these non professional shoplifters, some retailers have seen upwards of 80% reduction in inventory losses and shrinkage that had previously been caused by shoplifting.
Security tags on clothes prevent the amateur shoplifter because the tags are a visible deterrent. Any one can see the tags hanging off of an article of clothing. Because the tags are so common amongst retailers that both honest customers and shoplifters are aware of what the tags do.
This keeps these low level shoplifters at bay, for the most part. These thieves are not prepared for how to deal with the attention they would receive from an activated clothing alarm. Many would not know if they should drop the merchandise and run to save their skin. Should they keep going and hope no one is following them? These are the questions shoplifter’s think of.
The more they have to plan and calculate their theft, the less likely they will be to execute the plan. Slowly, the amount of work required doesn’t outweigh the benefits from the merchandise they are trying to steal.
