There are many different types of clothing security tags on the market today. One new option in clothing security is called a Shark Tag and is produced by Alpha Security. Many stores now face a problem commonly known as “wardrobing”. This is the practice of purchasing clothes for a single event with the intention of returning the item after it has served its purpose. This is hard to combat as it requires arguing with the customer over whether the product has been worn or not (even though usually it reeks of perfume and body odor). The items generally cannot be resold because they smell or have been damaged and this leaves the store with a loss. Enter the Shark Tag. These clothing security tags clamp onto the product (without leaving holes) and has to be removed by the customer before they can wear it. If the customer tries to return the product without the Shark Tag then you can easily refuse the refund without much fuss. With prom season in the foreseeable future this ought to get the attention of many retailers.
Another option for putting security tags on clothes is to go with classic Checkpoint tags. These clothing security devices work with a clothing alarm to alert you to possible theft. In many cases it is wise to use your Checkpoint tags with your Shark Tags so you battle both fronts. The clothing alarm will alert you to possible theft, while the Shark Tags protect you from refund fraud. Both of these methods of applying security tags to clothes are great options to help you improve your bottom line by reducing shrink.
