At one time, we employed a door guard whose job it was to greet customers, answer alarm activations, and to validate returns coming into the store. One day he told me about a girl that came in to return some nail polish. As she showed my employee the receipt and the bottle she was returning, told her that the color was really pretty and almost like the color she was wearing on her nails. It was a classic case of wardrobing.
Now this girl quickly changed her story and backtracked saying that she wasn’t going to return the nail polish, but she knew she was caught.
Too bad it isn’t always that easy for a retailer to know if their product is used in wardrobing.
Even though it is rare to catch a customer actually wearing the clothes they are attempting to return, Alpha Shark Tags are the next best thing. These plastic red tags help to reinforce your store’s return policy. Because the red tags simply can not be removed or reattached without showing signs of tampering, it is a fool proof way for your employees to determine if the clothing can be returned or not.
Alpha Shark Tags may not be able to tell you what the customer did with the clothes after they left the store, but they can decrease the likelihood that they were worn and then returned.
