Kind of an age old question, do I use a Clothing Alarm, or can I go with no Clothing alarm. If you’re a clothing retailer, I can give you some insight of the benefits of utilizing clothing security in your business.
Particularly for smaller clothing retailers, the benefits of using a clothing alarm far exceed the costs of the initial purchase. Sure it may sound like a lot of money, but you need to look at clothing security as a long term investment into your business.
I worked for a chain of stores, 6 stores in the entire chain. This private business was selling clothing and fast. However, growing just as fast as their business was shrink or inventory loss. As most business owners and managers know, nothing kills sales and profitability faster than shrink. Hired as a consultant, I observed the operations of each store. I also monitored the customer traffic and crime statistics for each specific neighborhood. Reports from employees helped me build recommendations on clothing security that would be most beneficial.
As a demonstration, I showed the owners a clothing alarm, and attached it to merchandise. I recommended at least one store try on this clothing alarm on high risk/theft merchandise. Initially, the store was somewhat reluctant to spend any money for security tags on clothes and wondered if this was the right idea. Soon, their worries about clothing security tags went away. In one particular department and one line of high risk merchandise, in the 30 day trial period, the store had a 95% decrease in the merchandise lost or stolen. Look at this success, the owners gave the managers direction to put clothing security merchandise on items in other parts of the store. As time went on, the business owners were sold on security tags on clothes. Infact, they purchase enough of a supply to properly outfit each of their stores and each of their departments clothing security tags.
If you are a business owner or manager looking to enhance sales and boost profits, make clothing security a priority.
