Like many people I enjoy watching sports and especially my two favorites, baseball and football. We have our favorite teams and root for them during their good seasons and their bad. We stick with them and support them buying sports gear, jerseys, hats, stickers for our cars and some even fly their team’s flag outside their home. There is a motto among teams now, picked up from the active wear company Under Armour, “Protect This House”. The motto, according to the website reference .com, “…is a call to all competitors who use their products to stand firm in their resolve to win.” Our teams are challenged to protect their home stadium, don’t allow ANY competitor to come into OUR stadium and think they can beat us. We fans go to the stadium and yell, scream and stomp our feet to motivate our players. When our team isn’t playing we often cheer on the underdog, we love to see the little guy, the not-so-well known team seemingly defeat all odds to take home the championship. I think of the 2016 College World Series when the relatively unknown Coastal Carolina Chanticleers took on the University of Florida, TCU, Texas Tech, and finally the University of Arizona to take home the NCAA Championship. New fans started rooting for the little school who took on all of the traditional powerhouse schools. It was said the vendors couldn’t keep Chanticleer merchandise in stock. If an active wear company recognizes the impact of the statement, “Protect This House”, you should recognize it for your store. Loss Prevention Systems, Inc. roots for the little guy too, the small stores fighting to be successful. They recognize that little stores don’t have the resources of the big box retailers to stop shoplifting, like a dedicated Loss Prevention department. They offer the best alternative to a dedicated L.P. department for those who can’t afford one.
From Electronic Article Surveillance towers to Checkpoint labels, LPSI has the tools that are proven to stop shoplifting and improve profits for stores. The tools work in two ways, first when thieves walk into a store and spot electronic article surveillance towers at the front doors they know that merchandise in the store is going to be protected. This tends to make the criminals nervous about trying to steal from the store, especially if they step in and see employees greeting customers and providing excellent customer service. The Checkpoint labels on merchandise deter theft as criminals are looking for tags to see how serious the store is about their anti-theft strategy. They don’t like to risk trying to steal merchandise that may set off the towers at the doors. The second way the electronic article surveillance tools stop shoplifting is when tagged merchandise is carried too close to the towers and the alarms in the tower are set off. Store staff immediately answers the alarm and conduct receipt checks. Is merchandise hidden in a purse? It doesn’t matter, Checkpoint labels can be detected through purses, in bags or even if merchandise is hidden in a pocket or under the clothes a criminal is wearing. Recovered merchandise stays in the store and shortage is prevented. Eventually the professional shoplifters stay away from stores that have towers and labels and superior service. Even the casual shoplifter gets the message after setting off an alarm once and being stopped while trying to steal.
It sounds good but you still aren’t sure you would know how to respond to alarms, place Checkpoint labels on merchandise or even identify who may try to steal? LPSI can provide training to store management teams and owners on how to stop shoplifting, recognize signs someone may be a shoplifter or even a dishonest employee. They can teach about anti-theft tools such as electronic article surveillance towers and how to maximize the effectiveness of them in a store. The folks at LPSI want to help you protect YOUR house by lowering your merchandise shrinkage and improving your bottom line. They are rooting for the underdog and have the knowledge and tools to help your business soar to new heights.
