Is it easy to be anti shoplifting? Businesses since the beginning of retail have dreamed of ways to completely stop shoplifting. Honestly, without dramatically impacting sales in your stores, to stop shoplifting could be impossible.
However, there are ways to seriously put a damper on shoplifting activity in your stores. Stores looking to stop shoplifting must look at retail anti theft devices. Retail anti theft devices offer stores the benefit of securing merchandise and the avenues to becoming anti shoplifting.
As a loss prevention professional, I have been very successful at implementing retail theft prevention methods designed to help stop shoplifting. At the top of my list are retail anti theft devices such as Checkpoint security tags and Checkpoint labels. Truly, as important as properly displaying merchandise, making sure it is protected is equally important to secure profits in your stores.
Working loss prevention in stores selling a range of merchandise, I have seen the negative impacts of stores not utilizing Checkpoint Security tags and Checkpoint labels. In some cases, I feel the store is somewhat negligent and encouraging shoplifting because they either refuse to use retail anti theft devices or simply believe retail theft prevention is not important. A big misconception by retailers is that if they sell merchandise quickly, they’ll eliminate the acts of shoplifting.
In reality, retail theft prevention is a must for any retailer looking to grow their business and help reduce the amount of loss they certainly will experience. When I visit stores, I always look for the manager who can speak realistically about the business of their stores. Any business manager worth their salt knows how retail theft prevention plays a huge part in their profits.
Walk your stores. Take a serious assessment of your needs. Do you have shoplifters (yes you do). Do you need merchandise security (yes you do!)
