My team of loss prevention agents that works the sales floor, watching for shoplifters, recently apprehended a group of three people who all stole clothing. Clothing security needs to be a concern for all businesses which sell clothes – these three individuals had nearly $300 worth of clothing concealed among them, inside their bags and, in the case of the male in the group, down the front of his pants.
Clothing is easy to conceal and bunches up small enough to not take up much space. Even a purse that is not unusually large can hold quite a bit of clothing when the shoplifter wants to use this means of concealment. Clothing can also be worn out of a business, under a jacket or under the shoplifter’s clothing.
Security tags on clothes are a proven deterrent to shoplifting. Shoplifters do not want to draw attention to themselves, but they know when they see clothing security tags that they risk a clothing alarm activating. It is time consuming as a shoplifter to try to remove clothing security tags , so why bother? There are always other businesses from which to steal.
Shoplifters want that smooth road – the one in which they enter a business, select the items they wish to steal, conceal the items and then leave undetected. Security tags on clothes provide that roadblock to throw the shoplifter off of their intended path.
