One of the easiest ways to combat shoplifting in your apparel departments is by using security tags on clothes. The average shoplifter prefers to go undetected in his/ her criminal activity. After all, that way they can come back and steal from you again. They don’t want to have to worry about pesky alarms going off and alerting the entire store staff and security personnel to their presence – and the presence of that backpack full of skinny jeans they’ve neglected to pay for. They’d much rather frequent an establishment that doesn’t take the time to place security tags on clothes.
If you’ve got teenagers (or used to be one) you know that they are always trying to keep up on the latest fashions. Often they try to maintain that fashionista persona even if they can’t afford it. There was a group of young girls that frequented a store that I worked at that was giving the store staff fits. There were different girls on different days; some were simply decoys while others did all the actual shoplifting. Some days they would come in, browse and take nothing at all – just to keep you on your toes. On the days that they did manage to apprehend one of the girls they later found that while they were processing the one, two or three others were making off with hundreds, if not thousands in merchandise.
The answer: Alpha High Theft Solutions. By simply tracking the trends and anticipating the teenagers theft patterns we were able to place security tags on clothes that we knew they’d be interested in stealing. As a result, regardless of any shell game they tried to play with the associates, the alarms would sound if they attempted to leave the store with the merchandise and it would also sound if they attempted to defeat the tag while still inside the store. We ended up apprehending several of the teenage girls, but more importantly by placing the security tags on clothes we let the community know we were serious about theft prevention.
