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.
80% seems like it would be an anomaly, one of those reports just to help validate a product or service. Can everyone really see an 80% reduction in theft? Actually yes, yes you can.
Of course, you first of all need to identify where your losses are coming from. Security tags on clothes won’t help you with merchandise that never made it into your store from the vendor. Clothing security doesn’t help you if your inventory losses are coming from damaged products. If your cashiers are not selling the correct item number or SKU, you do not have a theft issue, you have an operational issue.
Clothing security tags are only an effective deterrent against shoplifters, and to a lesser degree, employee theft. They increase the risk of a shoplifter being caught, making it far less attractive for them to steal.
