There are literally thousands of clothing stores in the US and they are all fighting each other for customers and sales. The last thing these stores need to be successful is to have to fight shoplifters for profits too. Unfortunately, that is the cold reality that we face. Retail theft (both internal and external) accounts for approx. 80-85% of soft line shrink according to most major studies. To this end it is vital that stores put security tags on clothes in order to protect their inventory.
There are many different clothing security systems on the market today. One system that is popular is by Checkpoint Security. Checkpoint tags are time tested and Loss Prevention approved. I have seen with my own eyes how shoplifters will attempt to defeat Checkpoint tags and then leave without stealing the product when unsuccessful. There is no way to apprehend everyone who intends to steal, but by putting security tags on clothes you don’t have to. The Checkpoint tags deter the theft from even taking place.
There are other clothing security tags available on the market as well. Alpha Security has some really great clothing security tags. They have standard hard tags and they also have a variety of tags made to fit small and delicate items. One cool thing about Alpha is that their clothing security tags are compatible with your existing RF and AM clothing alarm. It’s nice to know you can expand your current clothing security system to include Alpha product without having to purchase a new clothing alarm and toss your current tags. Alpha also has a cool product called Shark Tags. Shark Tags are disposable tags that “pinch” onto clothes. They don’t damage the product, but the customer will have to remove them (with scissors) at home before they can wear the product. Now if they try to return the product you can prove without argument that they product has been worn and can prevent “wardrobing” from taking place.
Visit the Loss Prevention Store to purchase a clothing alarm or clothing security tags.
