A common practice amongst thieves is theft for resale. Organized retail crime impacts our businesses more than we sometimes realize, and businesses that sell clothing are not exempt. Groups of shoplifters have been known to enter businesses, grab handfuls of merchandise, and exit quickly without making an attempt to conceal the crime. Speed is the tool that they use to try and make their quick getaway.
Clothing security can help prevent these types of crimes. Having a clothing alarm, such as Checkpoint tags, can make shoplifters nervous that extra attention may be drawn to their crimes. Removing clothing security tags after the theft is extremely difficult also, as Checkpoint tags require a key for removal. Your employees can remove the clothing security tags easily at the time the merchandise is purchased, but shoplifters do not want to have to fight for hours to remove them from the merchandise they have stolen.
Having clothing security also includes merchandising your items in such a way to minimize theft. Make sure that high theft, highly sought after merchandise is not located right near the entrance and exits of your business. High theft merchandise should also be located in an area where employees can monitor it. Employees should also be taught to provide good customer service to keep your honest customers coming back, and to deter the shoplifters from stealing.
Security tags on clothes are a recommended option to protect your merchandise from those that wish to steal it. Checkpoint tags are a visual deterrent to shoplifters, and can be just convincing enough to encourage the shoplifters to move on to a business that does not have clothing security.
