Don’t Be A Victim To Theft, Get The Alpha Spider Wrap Today, And See The Difference For Yourself
I was out shopping with my oldest daughter who is 18. The store we were shopping in sells liquor, which is displayed near the beer and wine at the back of the store. My daughter recognized that they had added some additional security and a teller in that particular section. My daughter just graduated from high school last year and was very familiar with this store’s theft problem. She said that anyone who was interested in getting alcohol would come to this particular store to steal it, because it was so easy. She said she always heard kids at school talking about it. When the store first started selling liquor they didn’t have any retail anti-theft devices on their property and were not securing the bottles in anyway. There were no additional cameras or store personnel in that area, which resulted in a great deal of theft, I would imagine. I was actually very shocked that they didn’t secure their items and was not surprised about the changes. They now have a cashier in that area specifically for alcohol purchases and are using the Alpha Spider Wrap on their boxed items and gift sets. The other alcohol is locked up in plastic cases and has to be removed by the cashier. I am honestly surprised it took them that long to realize they had a problem and to put some retail anti-theft devices in place.
The plastic cases are a great way to protect your property, but they also are somewhat burdensome at times, because you have to rely on the store associate to get you the product. Therefore, if the cashier is busy this can result in unwanted waiting time, which could cause frustration to the customer. It also requires a full-time cashier be stationed in that area to assist customers, which can add a substantial cost to your overhead budget. The Alpha Spider Wrap, on the other hand, is a great way to protect your products while still offering a hands-on no hassle sale. These come in various sizes to fit any product, from the bottle of liquor to the big screen television, they can cover it all. They are very easy to install in store and are simply removed at the time of sale. These re-useable retail anti-theft devices are equipped with Electronic Audio Surveillance (EAS), which sounds an alarm in the event someone tries to remove the device or the product from the store prior to sale. This allows the seller to simply display their items without the fear of theft and without the need for additional assistance. The Alpha Spider Wrap is an inexpensive way to secure all of your oddly shaped items and prevent theft in your store.
If you have been in this industry for any amount of time, you know that theft is inevitable. Shoplifting is a way of life for some and a rite of passage for others. Either way you look at it, everyday someone is stealing something from you, the real question is how much? We as retailers have an obligation to our companies to mitigate our risk and deter theft as best we can. Retail anti-theft devices have improved throughout the years, and are the best way to reduce our risk. We have to look towards an integrated approach in order to affect positive results. We must incorporate security devices like the Alpha Spider Wrap along with associate training, detection and reporting, to prevent shoplifting and reduce shrinkage. To see a major retailer without the proper level of security, show me weakness from the top down. Don’t be naïve to the long-term effects of shoplifting; protect yourself and your company appropriately.
