If you are using normal clothing security tags and still experiencing loss you need to evaluate the problem and take further action Follow the steps below:
1 Is the loss on all types of merchandise you sell or just specific types of items. In other words certain lines such as Polo or leather jackets are being targeted. You have to know this first. Keep a log. Have your employees note where and when they find evidence of this.
2 You need to consider how and where you apply your clothing security tags . Are they on a seam or other location that is robust enough to make tag removal difficult? Are your employees applying tags to every one of the items that you have decided must be tagged? Many times tagging does not happen and the product gets put out anyway.
3 If it is specific line of items that have problems you may need to add a new tag to your arsenal of tags. There are tags that take your security to another level. This tag is not used in place of your standard hard tags but in addition to it. This new tag will still cause an alarm on your Checkpoint system. However, the tag itself can have its own built in sounder that is VERY loud. The sounder will go off if the tag goes through the Checkpoint antennas. There is little doubt at that point where the tag is.
But, better yet while in the store if the shoplifter attempts to damage or remove the tag the built in tag sounder goes off.
4 When the Checkpoint Anti-shoplifting system alarms, are your employees simply waving the customer on? Every time you do this you train your customers, shoplifters and anyone else that observes this that you can shoplift to your hearts content.
If you take clothing security tags seriously then you will reduce shoplifting.
