As a loss prevention agent in a major metropolitan city, I’ve seen my fair share of what attracts shoplifters. Items close to the door or without clothing security tags allow thieves to think they can get away scot-free with your product. However, one of the easiest ways to discourage shoplifters with minimal disruption to your loyal customers is to place security tags on clothes.
One thing that amazes me is the deterrence effect of clothing security on potential shoplifters. I have lost count of how many times I have spotted a suspect sift through items with clothing alarms to find the one item that did not have any clothing security tags, which becomes the item they steal. I’ve even had shoplifters bluntly tell me that the hassle of removing a clothing alarm is not worth the effort!
Recently, a female attempted to do a grab-and-run out of my store. She picked up a stack of jeans totaling $1300 and ran out the front door, which activated the clothing alarm. She immediately threw down the clothes and left. You can bet I was thankful we had clothing security on those jeans that day!
The different types of clothing security tags make it very easy to find the right fit for each product. Several of the clip-on clothing alarms work great for shirts and bottoms, while the cable locks are excellent for jackets and sweaters and are useful for the bulky items that are too thick for clip-on security tags.
