Clothing security is an important part of the softlines business. If merchandise is not present and in your store for sale, you lose that sale.
So what can you do? Use clothing security tags. A specialty sporting goods retailer I worked for a few years ago had a problem with high ticket clothing items being stolen. Typically, the shoplifter would simply take the clothing into a fitting room, put on the merchandise and walk out of the store…almost effortless.
A simple solution to this problem would have been adding clothing security tags . These tags are a great deterrent to the average shoplifter and offer a sense of protection to management.
This sporting goods retailer quickly realized the issue and added security tags on clothes in particular departments and sections of their stores. Almost immediately, the stores saw a decrease in the amount of loss.
Clothing security tags take only seconds to put on, but are near impossible to remove without the appropriate removal tool. security tags on clothes have become more discreet and less damaging to the material when used right.
In addition to security tags on clothes , some softline retailers turn to a clothing alarm . A clothing alarm adds an audible siren or chirp to alert store associates of a potential theft. At the very least, it will attract the attention of stores associates and deter the shoplifter. Imagine being a shoplifter, looking for privacy you take the merchandise into the fitting room. You attempt to remove the clothing alarm and…that’s right, party over.
As a loss prevention agent, I remember walking the salesfloor of a softlines retailer who used the clothing alarm program. As I walked, I could hear the loud chirps coming from various parts of the store. I always got a giggle when I imagined the look on the shoplifters face as the clothing alarm activated. Clothing security at it’s best!
