No More Pin Stripes- Clothing Security

The days of mob bosses and pin striped suits are gone. The new face of organized crime is one of many nationalities, both males and females, and of all groups. The sad reality is that organized criminals are stealing from these stores because the owners and employees are so oblivious to what is going on. The employees are simply looking the other way, or do not realize the full extent of the theft.
What ends up becoming a reality is that many retailers think because no one in a fedora and pin stripe suit is stealing from them they are immune to organized retail theft.
In fact, many organized retail theft cases that I have worked in the past revolve around a suspect that every one in the store has seen. That is because these thieves are in the store on multiple occasions and aren’t scared of employee interaction. 
When I show my employees pictures of my suspects so they can let me know if they see them, the employees often are surprised because they do recognize the suspect. They see them frequently, but never suspected a thing. This familiarity only makes it easier for these organized retail criminals to get away with multiple thefts and major financial losses for the unassuming stores.

Keep A Watchful Eye- Clothing Security

During a recent loss prevention consultation with a local clothing store, we knew we needed to have some ways to identify what kinds of thefts were taking place, and what kinds of clothing protection would be effective to stop the inventory losses for happening.
We started by taking a look at the store’s sales reports. We broke the sales down by departments and compared them to last month’s sales and last year’s. We noticed which departments were behind on their sales goals for the year, and which ones did not increase compared to last year. 
I explained that if they did not have the right products to sell, then they would not have a chance at meeting or exceeding their sales goals.
Next we looked for signs of theft- specifically for torn of clothing tags. We found several caches of them behind the mirrors in the fitting rooms. We also found them under some shelves in an unattended corner of the store.
One of the most basic solutions was to start using electric article surveillance tags and devices to protect the inventory from theft. Next we put a seal of caulk around the fitting room mirrors, preventing the thieves from sticking price and clothing tags behind them.
Lastly, we moved the tables around to open up the back corner. Now, even when an employee can’t physically be back in that corner, they can still keep a watchful eye from the front of the store.

Is This A Joke- Alpha Shark Tags

What is black and white and red all over? No, it is not a newspaper. It is clarity of your store’s return policy against consumer wardrobing when you use the red Alpha Shark Tags on your special occasion clothing.
One of the best ways to implement a change of policy is to make sure your intentions are clear- make them black and white. When you start to use wardrobing tags, you want to make sure your employees and your customers are clear form the start as to what they are and what they are used for.
Wardrobing tags are plastic clamps that affix to the front of a garment. There is usually a pin that clamps the two sides together securely. Because this is not an anti shoplifting device, the consumer can easily remove the tag with a pair of household scissors.
It is important that the consumer knows these tags are there for one reason only: to stop wardrobing. The consumer also needs to know that if the tag is removed, it will be unable to be reattached. If the tag is removed, the retailer can use its discretion to reject a return even if it is within the store’s receipted return policy.
The best way to ensure the consumer knows this policy is to verbally tell them at the point of sale. The Alpha Shark Tag can also attach a paper copy of the return and wardrobing policy to the garment to further ensure communication with the consumer.

How Much is Too Much? – Clothing Security

How much is too much? When you are merchandising and stocking in your departments, traditionally you want to fill the shelves and the racks as much as you can. It is usually discouraged to have things in a back stockroom. How does this play into clothing security? Can there be too much product on the sales floor?
If you have theft issues, than yes, you can have too much product out. Thieves will take every opportunity you give them. If you put out every piece of high theft merchandise, do not be surprised if the thieves actually take every piece.
Clothing security actually goes beyond just putting clothing security tags on your merchandise. It involves taking a second look at the opportunities your store presents. Can you reduce your shelf quantities and not make a negative impact on your sales? If so, do it. Take those items and back stock them.
By giving your store a different approach to theft prevention than just using Checkpoint tags, you will be better off. Reducing your shelf quantity is just another enhancement to your clothing security.
The right way is to look at your current sales and make a determination if you can make the reductions. If you sell multiples of an item and need a large representation of this item, don’t sacrifice your sales through a shelf quantity reduction. However, those situations are generally more of an exception than a rule.

Top Of Their Game- Checkpoint Tags

Checkpoint tags are to a certain extent efficient in preventing shoplifting. When it comes to shoes, these clothing security tags may not be at the top of their game. If it is a case of straight theft from a grab and run, or concealment then the tags can be useful. When it comes to miss matched shoes, it is not an effective deterrent.
Miss matched shoes are two different sized shoes in the same shoebox. Obviously it didn’t come in that way from the vendor. A customer with two different sized feet (which is very common) get two pairs of shoes in two different sizes. They take one shoe from each pair leaving you with a pair of dissimilar sized shoes. Since it is very rare that you can find another customer with the exact need for this mixed size pair of shoes, you now have a loss on your hands.
Mini CableLoks by Alpha Security can actually help with both kinds of losses. They are an alarm based clothing security tag. They are secured using aircraft grade cables instead of pins, which gives some protection against miss match shoes. When you use the 6” cable, you can actually attach both pair of shoes together with some room for the customer to still try them on and take a step or two. If both shoes stay physically connected, they can’t be separated causing the loss.

Blurred Lines- Wardrobing Tags

The hard part of combating wardrobing is that there are blurred lines within the process. Stores take returns of clothing that have not been worn. Stores take returns of clothing that were worn multiple times, but ended up being defective.
So why would it be so bad that someone wears clothing once, for only a few hours, and then returns it?
Just because you can justify it, doesn’t make it any better, or any more ethical to be wardrobing. Unfortunately, these blurred lines only make it easier for some people to rationalize what they are doing as acceptable.
Retailers do not have the luxury of entering into a discussion with these particular customers to convince them that wardrobing is bad. Any broach of the subject can create potentially an accusatory situation for a customer; and not every employee is going to be correct in their accusations.
The end result is that retailers need a better way to consistently uphold their return policies, while accommodating the legitimate customer return, and declining the fraudulent ones.
Wardrobing Tags are designed to help clear up any blurred lines that a seemingly generous return policy might have.
The Wardrobing Tags have the ability to hold a copy of the store’s return policy. They also provide a visual identifier for store employees to differentiate between a real customer and one who is wardrobing.

When Do You Think You Will Need Them? – Checkpoint Tags

Why should a retail business spend money on Checkpoint Tags, when they might not actually need them? The real question is why wouldn’t you want to spend money on Checkpoint Tags before it becomes a problem? If you wait until after you have a theft problem, you will end up spending more money to fix the problem than if you had initially invested in clothing security.
Some shoplifters are specifically looking for designer brands that they can resell easily on ebay, or in a flea market. Others are looking for personal usage of the merchandise. Whether they can’t afford, or simply don’t want to pay for new clothes, shoplifters often steal so they have something new to wear. Same thing goes for employees.
Ultimately, security tags on clothes are there for two reasons. 
One is to deter shoplifters from taking clothing and other items from your stores. The next is to stop the theft that might be taking place already, that you are not aware of. Both of which can create a serious financial strain if left unnoticed.
In any case, Checkpoint Tags have been proven to reduce inventory shrink numbers by as much as 85 percent- more than what the cost of clothing security would be in most stores.

Can’t Keep Waiting- Clothing Security

I have spent countless hours watching shoplifters in the act of committing their crimes. One time I spent thirty minutes waiting and “cleaning” the fitting room, because there was a girl inside, who was going to steal a shirt, and kept checking to see if I left. We didn’t have much clothing security, so I knew that she was determined to take the shirt.
Just like every other store employee, at some point you have to stop watching in order to attend to another function of your job.
In this case, there was a hurt customer that I needed to attend to. So I left my potential suspect with the clothes that had no anti theft devices. It wasn’t long before I saw the girl leave. When I went to see if she left the clothes, all I found was a pile of empty hangers.
I knew that if we had used something, anything, even if it were just cheap tags or cheap labels for anti theft devices, this girl would not have left with our merchandise.

Big Protection, Tiny Package- Clothing Security Tags

Shoes always pose a problem for clothing security. The two biggest losses in the shoe department are inventory shrink losses from shoplifters or employees.
These theft losses are pretty straightforward. Often a shoplifter will come into the store with an old pair of shoes and try on a new pair. They put their old pair in the box and walk out with the new pair. An employee might do the same, or they will be more likely to pass off the shoes at the point of sale to a friend or relative.
Using Checkpoint tags only partially solves each of these problems. Since the pin system only works when there is an eye to thread the stickpin through, many shoes cannot be tagged. Strappy heels, dress shoes and sandals are prime examples. Without clothing security tags, it is just that much easier for a shoplifter to walk out the door unnoticed.
Using the Alpha Security Mini CableLok instead of checkpoint tags offers more range for your clothing security tags. The Mini CableLok is a small 3” aircraft grade cable with an isolated sound chamber. The cable can be looped through straps or decorations that would secure the lock. By increasing the range of merchandise that can now be secured, to makes it harder for a shoplifter or an employee to sneak out the door.

Can’t Change Her Mind – Wardrobing Retail

As a retailer, it is our job not to try and change the perception of these customers. It is our job to eliminate the opportunity within our own store for wardrobing retail to take place.
Two ladies were talking about the interview one of them had later. One of the ladies was expressing her disgust at the other coffee shop patrons who were walking to closely to her with their cups of coffee.
She talked about how mad she would be if someone spilt even a drop of coffee on her new outfit. At first I sympathized thinking that if I had bought a new outfit to impress a potential employer, I would not want to show up with coffee stains all over it.
Then I realized that the lady was upset because she needed to keep the outfit nice so she could return it to the store the next day. It actually made me so disgusted that I personally wanted to “accidentally” spill my coffee on her. Then I realized- what good would that do?
The lady was so open about her actions that this very clearly was not her first time doing so. Unfortunately, this also would not be her last.
Wardrobing is a part of her lifestyle. It probably is something she had done for so long, that she no longer sees anything wrong with it, if she ever even felt any remorse or hesitation about it.
