If it didn’t feel like summer was here before, it sure does now. Memorial Day weekend is the traditional kick off weekend for the pool season. From community pools to apartments, and public water attractions, this is the weekend we have all been waiting for to begin the swim season.
Retailers, I am sure, felt the surge of swimsuit sales over the last week. Most loss prevention employees felt the surge of swimsuit theft attempts. Clothing security narrows in on micro seasons like swim and beach season. Clothing security tags make their appearance to help protect this transitional inventory.
Clothing security is not just limited to swimsuits though. Any type of beach and water attire seems to fly out the doors. It includes anything from shoe switches (with both incoming flip flops and outgoing), to accessories like sun hats and sunglasses. Don’t forget that if you cross merchandise any sort of sun protection (lotions, oils aloe, etc,) that they can also be easily concealed in a beach bag headed out the door.
If you are unsure of what is going on in your store, keep an eye on your clothing alarms. They will be a good indicator of who is taking product out that they haven’t paid for. Watch for hurried movements, and arms tight against the body to point you in the right direction.
Visit the Loss Prevention Store to purchase a clothing alarm or clothing security tags and an Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system.
