Why do we need protection for our clothing inventory? Who is going to take our merchandise? These two questions come up frequently when I consult for small businesses that are not convinced that they need clothing security.
The first question is why? What they are really asking is why they should spend money on clothing security, when they might not actually need it. I answer them by explaining that clothing security is 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.
Next we talk about who is going after clothing. Depending on what kind of clothing you carry, the attraction is different for specific kinds of shoplifters.
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.
In any case, clothing security tags have been proven to reduce inventory shrink numbers by as much as 85 percent- more than what the cost of a system would be in most stores.
