When you are using clothing security tags to protect your clothing inventory, it is necessary to find a consistent and customer friendly place to attach them. When I conduct my audits, I have seen that some stores do not do a very good job with their consistency. As a result, their clothing security is less than stellar.
One of the key points of good clothing security is to eliminate false clothing alarms. If the alarm is registering constantly, it becomes about as effective as hearing a car alarm in a parking lot. When was the last time anyone took those seriously?
If you put your security tags on clothes in the same place each and every time, then you cashiers all know when and where to look for them. Often the clothing alarms that I respond to have a tag in the improper place.
When we push our cashiers for fast and friendly check outs, we need to understand that if a tag isn’t where it is supposed to be, they rarely will take the time to search the entire garment just to see if there is possibly a tag on there.
By having one set place for security tags on clothes to be attached, you eliminate the guesswork for a cashier. You also reduce the amount of false alarms, and unhappy customers who have been delayed and embarrassed by that same alarm.
