Small businesses cannot afford to lose their inventory to theft. Whether it is a perceived need or want, or stealing on a whim because the person sees the opportunity, there are many tools available to deter shoplifters of all kinds of different retailers. Stores that specialize in clothing can be just as susceptible to theft as an electronics store. Clothing can be worn out the door, concealed underneath what they came in wearing. Accessories can be put on and worn out as well, or stuffed into another shopping bag or purse.
When it comes to this type of theft, deterrence is one of your best defenses. Clothing Security tags come in different forms, colors and sizes. There are the flat Checkpoint Labels that can be adhesed to backs of price tags or even sewn deep into a hidden seam or pocket. These work great because they give the would be thief another thing to worry about if they try to get out the door without finding the tag.
Additionally, there are the hard tags. These are my preference because they send a clear message that the store is serious about Anti-Shoplifting. They can be used in conjuntion with the soft tags, if you choose, for even more protection. They come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. Hard Clothing Security tags can be attached with pins or lanyards, and can only be removed with the correct tools. They are meant to be visible to the customer, but are not something they can simply tear off and discard. The hard tag is a great theft deterrent because the customer knows they may damage the merchandise if they try to remove it. These tags activate the Checkpoint system the same as the soft tags, so if a person tries to wear something out the door, the staff will be alerted. Hard Clothing Security tags do not impede customers from looking at the items on display, or from taking them off of racks to try them on. They can be attached to zippers, in a seam, or many other locations and do not harm the product when attached or removed. Hard tags can be utilized on small items like watches and bracelets as well as large coats and handbags. They are easily removed and completely reusable, and do not require a lot of training. Unused tags can also be stored under counters, or anywhere the store prefers, as they do not take up a lot of space. These durable tags are worth taking a look at if your business is seeing shrink in clothing and accessories. Along with excellent customer service, Clothing Security tags are a theft deterrent that works.
