Many retailers don’t realize just how hard it is to prevent shoplifting once the shoplifter has started their process. If a shoplifter has come into the store and weighed the effectiveness of your security with their own level of confidence and decided they can get away with the theft, it is too late.
Once a shoplifter’s eye is on a prize, it can be extremely difficult to persuade them to not take the merchandise and go quietly out of the store.
Now that the shoplifter has a goal in mind, and a plan, they have already started to mentally tear down any measures you have in place to prevent shoplifting. The good news is that most stores who have minimal security can actually reduce the losses by shoplifters, if they start to add additional security features.
When a potential shoplifter enters a store and sees multiple ways to prevent shoplifting like caring and attentive employees and retail anti theft devices, suddenly the desire to steal is outweighed by the desire to not get caught.
