As on line orders become increasingly popular, brick and mortar stores are scrambling to adapt to these new consumer shopping habits. One of the current trends is to allow customers to place their orders on line, and then pick up the merchandise in the store. With this change to shopping habits come changes to our clothing security.
The “old fashioned” way of shopping was a customer actually had to come into the store, select their items and carry them to the register to be rung up. Any clothing security tags were removed at this point of sale.
Now, the customer has already paid for their items, and the employees are the ones to gather the merchandise and take it to a central check out location/ customer service area. Here is where a decision needs to be made regarding the security tags on clothes.
Do you remove the Checkpoint tags now, in an effort to expedite the customers wait (a big part of why they shopped on line to begin with)? If so, you run the risk of shoplifting or employee theft of readily accessible items that have the clothing security already removed.
Or, you can leave the tags on, protecting your merchandise from this easy access, and run the risk of irritating the customer who is expecting a smooth and quick pick-up process?
Visit the Loss Prevention Store to purchase Checkpoint Tags, a Clothing Alarm, Clothing Security or Clothing Security Tags to put Security Tags on Clothes and an Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system.
