I wonder if shoplifting is possibly an inherited behavior, or learned? The employees I supervise that apprehend shoplifters recently apprehended a lady that was stealing $180 worth of clothing and other merchandise. She concealed it all easily in her purse, and later moved it to one of our sacks after purchasing a couple items at a register. She then grabbed a few more items before casually exiting the store.
While she was being interviewed, she told us that we had also apprehended her daughter. Sure enough, six months prior her 19 year old daughter had been caught doing the same thing.
Business owners sometimes hide their head in the sand instead of facing the reality that shoplifting is a serious problem. Businesses that sell clothing have to be particularly in tune to managing their loss due to shoplifting. Clothing is high theft and easy to steal. Clothing security is a viable option for those businesses interested in protecting themselves from mothers and daughters like these.
Security tags on clothes are a visible deterrent to the potential shoplifter. Customers can still easily try on clothes and shop your clothing racks as they can without clothing security tags. The security tags on clothes simply offer a reminder that the customer should not even consider shoplifting that item. Having clothing security says that the business is serious about loss prevention and protection of its assets.
It is sad, but a fact, that some people consider a family outing as going out to shoplift from businesses like yours. If you sell clothing, invest in clothing security. Convince the shoplifters to travel elsewhere so you are no longer their victim.
