Clothing security tags are an effective deterrent against two groups of shoplifters that are not willing to risk too much effort, for fear of getting caught.
When times are good and parents have more disposable income, they are more willing to spend money on name brand items of clothing. As times get harder and money is tighter, the same drive to purchase these items decreases.
The flip side is that when a parent’s cash runs short, teens and tweens (who rely on their parents for spending cash) are left without. That means the designer jeans and fashionable accessories are not as easy to come by.
Just because there is a decrease in the income to buy the clothing, doesn’t mean there is a decrease in desire for the clothing. That means it is still important to maintain security tags on clothes.
What we end up seeing is a combination of one of two events. Well meaning parents spend what little income they can on their kids. They feel that they must be taken care of before the parent’s own needs. Because they still have their own list of wants that they are unable to afford, these parents might turn to theft to supplement their own wants.
The kids are in a similar boat. Because they do not have the extra income to buy these items, they might decide to make an attempt at theft. If they do not see any clothing security, they are more apt to steal than if there is something (like checkpoint tags) standing in their way.
