Do A Spot Check- Security Tags on Clothes

When you use security tags on clothes, as owners and managers we often focus our efforts on compliance. Did we tag all of the clothing? Are the Checkpoint Tags in the proper location on the garment? Do we have a new item that we want to enhance our clothing security with?
What we often forget about is how to train our employees in responding to alarms generated by the clothing security tags. If you had a bag in your hand, with an item inside that had a clothing security tag on it, and walked out the exit door triggering the alarm, what would your employees do?
Would they come over to deactivate the tags? Would they validate the receipt? Would they simply ignore the alarm and continue on with what they are doing?
That is where training your employees on the expectations are critical. It doesn’t matter how many times an alarm goes off, if no one responds, all of your time and effort to tag the merchandise is rendered useless.
More often than not, the reason why employees disregard the alarms is because they do not feel comfortable with how to respond. By properly training them and showing them your own example of how to respond, your alarm activations will be much more productive.

But Is It Illegal? –Wardrobing Retail

Wardrobing retail is a highly unethical process. Whether it is from the intent to wardrobe from the beginning, or an after thought from an outfit worn with buyer’s remorse it is morally wrong to return worn merchandise.
The problem for retailers is that it might not actually be illegal. There are some forms of return fraud that is very clearly illegal, however wardrobing is not one of them. Most state legislation only says that a retailer must post their return policy in a prominent location.
Additionally, there are still a fair amount of retailers that welcome back refunds of merchandise in any condition. That makes it even harder to form actual legislation that the majority of all retailers can agree on. Would you be happy if state laws outlined exactly how your return policy should read?
That leaves it up to the individual retailers to create their own return policy as well as finding clear-cut ways to discourage and reduce wardrobing within their stores.
Some retailers have found success through having an “all sales are final” policy. Simple and effective; no one can abuse a policy that has no margin for exception. As this can potentially alienate a large, honest customer base, maybe a less strict policy can be utilized. Maybe a 30-day policy would work, or implementing Alpha Shark Tags on all of your special occasion items can be effective in your situation.

What Happened There? –Wardrobing

I recently bought a dress. Since I made the purchase online I never worried that the dress may have been involved in any wardrobing before I bought it. Unfortunately, once I received the dress in the mail, I went to try it on and there was a huge smudge of makeup all inside the dress. Ugh.
Now I can’t even begin to tell you the range of thoughts that went through my mind, but the first thing I did was to hop on the phone with customer service. Sure enough, this dress had been shipped from a store, and not from a warehouse or distribution center. Even better, this was the last one in my size.
I was given two options, return the dress or keep the dress with an extra ten percent discount. Since I really wanted the dress and the discount would cover dry cleaning, I went with option number two.
Because the dress came from an actual store, one of two things happened. The make up came from a customer trying the dress on, oblivious to the damage she did, or it came from a customer who was wardrobing.
Either way, the company lost out. They were shorted the discount that they gave me. Additionally, they lost me as a customer (and all the money I am spending elsewhere) because it was not worth the potential hassle to order anything from them again.

Tie One On- Alpha Shark Tags

The news has been quick to point out that women are more likely than men to be wardrobing. One in six women will admit to having committed some sort of wardrobing retail in their lives. That doesn’t mean that men never do it that just hasn’t been the focus of media attention.
One of the more common items that men will buy, wear and then return is a tie. Just as a woman wants to have a new dress for each occasion she goes to, men want to update their looks to. A quality tie can sometimes run you just as much as a women’s special occasion dress can.
In most cases, it is even easier for a man to hide the tags while wearing a dress tie. Most of them can be sandwiched between the two ends of the tie, and sealed with a tie clip so no one else is the wiser.
Alpha Shark Tags are a great solution. The pins are delicate enough to not snag when attached. If the tag is properly attached to the lower third of the tie, the wardrobing tags will not be hidden even when the tie is tied around the purchaser’s neck.
This strategic placement is key to success. If the Alpha Shark Tag is to low, or on the wrong end, the tag can be hidden from view, rendering it ineffective against wardrobing.

It’s Sew Easy! – Security Tags On Clothes

For some retail boutiques, it is all about the brand image. That is a key selling point for your customers- their clothing came from the boutique, not some mass merchandise clothing store. In reality, how many boutiques have the resources to create and manufacture their own lines? Not very many, so the solution comes in re-branding existing clothing that may or may not have any clothing security attached.
When a boutique re-brands their clothing, they are usually taking other designer’s clothing and eliminating these logos and other identifying tags. The boutique will then sew in their own tags and logos; effectively creating their own in house brand of clothing and merchandise. 
Fortunately for these small boutiques, this re-branding process is a prefect time to add security tags to clothes. Checkpoint tags have a sew- in label that is the perfect clothing security.
These sew- in labels are highly efficient from a labor and payroll perspective. The labels are sewn into the garment at the same time the boutique’s labels and tags are sewn in, saving time and effort.
The labels are also customizable, which can further reinforce the boutiques brand and image.
Finally, the labels are harder for a shoplifter to find and remove. It really is a solution for clothing security tags that are sew easy!

Cable Lok Vs. Mini Cable Lok- Clothing Security Tags

Getting the right product for your clothing security can be just as easy as comparing to very similar clothing security tags. Two such products are the Alpha Security Cable Lok and the Alpha Security Mini Cable Lok.
Both of these clothing security tags have the following features:
• 7×7 strand aircraft grade cable 
• 95 dBA alarm 
• Flashing LED light 
• Isolated sound chamber 
• Easy to apply and remove 
• Tough, secure and reusable 
The 3 Alarm clothing alarm version partners perfectly with NanoGate® in addition to providing the following features:
EAS Protection: Activates EAS alarm if a breach occurs 
Early Detection: Alarms when merchandise is tampered with in store 
Extended Range: Self alarms if merchandise is removed from store
The difference between the two really comes down to size: the size of the lanyard and the size of the housing.
The Cable Lok has three sizes of lanyards- 6”, 48” and 72”. The Housing – 3.53”L x 1.62”W x 0.74”D 25 (8.97 cmL x 4.11 cmW x 1.88 cmD)
The Mini Cable Lok also has three sizes of lanyards, but they start at 3”, and then 48” and 72”. The Housing is slightly smaller as well – 2.60”L x 1.16”W x 0.80”D 25 (6.60 cmL x 2.95 cmW x 2.03 cmD) which works great for smaller items like shoes.

A Quick Addition- Checkpoint Tags

When the retailer rebrands their merchandise, they will typically take out any existing labels and sew in the new proprietary ones. For example, a shirt would have the original tags in the back of the neckline or collar. They would be taken out and replaced with the new brand tags. This replacement is the perfect time to add security tags on clothes in the form of Checkpoint Tags.
These Checkpoint tags are actually a paper label that is embedded with an anti theft device. 
This anti theft label would be encased in a small pocket of material. The pockets are close to the size of a quarter, which is far less bulky when compared to the button and pin hard tags used by many retailers for clothing security. 
The softer pocket material around the anti theft label helps reduce any discomfort a customer might experience when trying the shirt on- another benefit to using these clothing security tags.
The pocket is a secure way to add security tags on clothes with minimal time and effort on your part, or that of your employees. Best of all, the pocket is removed after being purchased by the customer once they get home, with a pair of common household shears. Because these labels are sewn into the neckline or seam, they are easily removed without as much risk of damaging the garment.

A High Rate Of Return- Wardrobing Retail

Having products like wardrobing tags gives a better determining factor between a customer who is returning multiple items legitimately, and one who is wardrobing retail. In other words, they are purchasing clothing items and have no intention of keeping them after they have worn them.
More research is showing that a larger majority of loyal customers actually have a higher return velocity or rate of return. For a retailer to primarily rely on return velocity as a basis to accept or deny a return/ refund puts that retailer at risk for offending one of their best, and most legitimate customers.
This is due in part to the level of comfort a customer has in spending their money with a particular retailer. If they know they can take the time to find exactly what they want, they will come back. 
Sometimes customers want to try on items in their own home. Mother’s of young or multiple children find it difficult to wrestle everyone into a fitting room and keep them calm long enough to actually try on and evaluate a clothing purchase. It is easier to buy several items that look like they might work out and try them on at home where they have the space and the time to do so. 
Maybe they need to compare clothing styles and colors to items already in their wardrobe. It can be difficult to remember exactly what you have in your closet and then try to find an exact fit for a new piece. Both scenarios happen frequently and can contribute to a high return rate. 
Both scenarios however will benefit from using wardrobing tags to show an employee that these frequent or large returns are indeed legitimate and should be honored appropriately with their refunds.

Looking Ahead- Clothing Security

Confronting a shoplifter takes more than just responding to a clothing alarm and throwing out a wild accusation. It takes actual knowledge of the crime being committed. An accusation that has no truth to it can result in a wrongful detainment lawsuit from the accused, costing an enormous sum of money and time.
Confronting or detaining a shoplifter takes an intimate knowledge of the crime. That means you have to personally witness the event. You have to know one hundred percent, undeniably, that the clothing the person has is yours, and they intended to steal it.
One of the parts of recovering the merchandise during the initial detainment is to make sure the shoplifter knows you have complete knowledge of their actions. That usually includes you stating “ I know you have Item A hidden in your bag (pocket, purse, coat, etc)”. By stating the exact item and the exact location the item was concealed, you have proven your knowledge of their theft attempt.
While some of the larger companies have access to RFID tags as a part of their clothing security, smaller business still have to rely on being an actual eyewitness to determine which specific pieces of merchandise have been concealed.
If dedicating that kind of time to reduce shoplifting losses just isn’t plausible for you, security tags on clothes are an effective deterrent. They stop losses before they even begin.

Is This The Answer? – Wardrobing Tags

Are Wardrobing Tags really the answer to solve the problem of refund fraud in your store? Yes. Yes they are. Wardrobing tags, or more specifically Alpha Shark Tags are an easy and comprehensive way to determine if a refund should be taken.
If the Alpha Shark Tags is still on and un-tampered with, then there shouldn’t be a reason to suspect wardrobing. However, to really put an end to wardrobing retail and other more costly forms of refund fraud, there needs to be another action plan put into place.
When you clarify your return policy, customers have a better chance of understanding what they can and cannot do even before a purchase is made. It is easier to retain your customer base when they understand what the ground rules are. There is nothing more frustrating than trying to make a legitimate return, only to find out that the store will not allow it.
That means you need to make sure your return policy is clear and concise, while still protecting your inventory. A few examples are to start with posting your return policy in writing where the customer can see it. You can reinforce this by printing it on the back of the receipt, or adding a second attachment that has the return policy on it.
Secondly educate your employees to educate your customers. Have them verbally explain the policy as the customer is making their purchase. This is especially crucial if they are buying something that has special return considerations like a shortened time frame or all items must be in their original packaging.
