The use of security tags on clothes will boost net profit margins by as much as 10%. It is simple math. The less product that is lost to theft, the less the cost of those losses effect bottom line profits. This may be the most efficient way for retailers to make more money without having to sell more product.
In today’s challenging economy, raising prices to make up for lost profits just doesn’t make sense. The demand is lower and prices are falling due to large retailers buying power driving the market.
3 out of 6 of the top retail theft targets according to the National Retail Security Survey are clothing segments: women’s, men’s and children’s. So as a clothing retailer,keeping what you have on the racks and shelves through the use of security tags on clothes will reduce your losses AND increase your profits.
Security tags on clothes are an instant visual deterrent to would be shoplifters and can only be removed with a specific device at the cash register. Checkpoint Security Systems offers clothing tags in a variety of shapes and sizes both in “hard tag” or “soft tag” varieties.
Checkpoint hard tags are a plastic type of material held on to the clothing with a pin or a steel string. Checkpoint soft tags are stickers, called labels with a very aggressive adhesive. Theses checkpoint labels are applied to the product’s packaging, hidden in the product somewhere or even sewn in place totally out of sight.
