As I’ve said before, I’m a huge fan of Alpha Keepers. With so many different shapes and sizes, I can always find a solution to any theft problem I run into. I’ve compiled some of the most commonly stolen goods, which I find to also be the best candidates for use in the keepers. We’ll continue with items #6-10 below!
Yes, there are some people who still purchase CDs. While digital music is growing in popularity month by month, CDs are still a popular purchase, especially for the consumer who wants to physically touch/own the songs. Theft in this category is also pretty steady across the retail spectrum. Alpha Keepers have a dedicated line of product specifically designed to help protect these items.
If you’re going to prevent shoplifting of CDs, you may as well include the DVD line as well. There are obviously not much difference in the packages, however most retailers like to merchandise the two differently. The vast line of Alpha Keepers also have several options that include hang tabs, which allow you a wide range of options for display.
8. Gaming Consoles
Why lock up your gaming consoles in a showcase, where your customer’s can’t access them? I personally hate having to wait for an employee to open a locked case. As a retailer myself, I absolutely understand the need to do so, however there are so many other options on the market to prevent shoplifting. The best method is using an Alpha Keeper. You can prominently display the units in a manner that allows simple and quick checkout/service to your customer, without having the added worry of a shoplifting incident.
9. Gaming Accessories
While we’re talking about game consoles, let’s also talk about the copious amounts of accessories that go along with them. You have the controllers, cables, games, remotes, memory cards and wireless accessories. While it wouldn’t be practical to secure all of these items, I would recommend securing the more commonly stolen items. I can bet that you will find a keeper to meet any size or shape.
10. Smart Phones
Now this is one that I haven’t seen too often, however it’s a great solution to prevent shoplifting here. If you don’t want to spend the capital to install an elaborate security system, or you don’t want to keep your entire stock of phones in your warehouse, the keepers are a great solution. This allows you to minimize on labor (having an employee go to the back to get a phone each time a customer wants one) and allows your customers to get in and out of the store as quickly as possible.
With over 30 different sizes and shapes, you are almost guaranteed to find an Alpha keeper that will meet the needs of your store. With thieves becoming bolder and the ability to resell stolen goods becomes increasingly easier, boosters and professional thieves will continue to target this type of merchandise. A strong product protection program will help deter this activity in your store and help you to maximize your profits.
