What kind of store benefits from Checkpoint Systems? The short answer is any type. If you sell to the public and you allow people to freely browse in your building, then you will certainly see a return on your investment after installing genuine Checkpoint Systems. I see threatening signs hanging in convenience stores, thrift stores, upscale boutiques, grocery stores, and even gift shops. Just yesterday at a fall festival, I ventured inside a little shop that had a sign up that read: Free Ride In A Police Car If You Are Caught Stealing. What do you get if you don’t get caught? Free stuff. That’s the difference in stores that use signs and stores that use real tools for retail theft prevention.
I have been in convenience stores that utilize the signs too. They get tired of their novelty lighters and beef jerky disappearing, so they resort to using these scare tactics. Unfortunately, these stop very few people. When greed drives people to cross to the dark side, a sign is useless. Adhere some Checkpoint Labels to these items and then you send the message that you mean business. Most people are aware that in many states it is an automatic felony if they remove a tag. Boom. Then there are the expensive gift shops and boutiques. If you are the owner of a shop that sells retail inventory, then you have already shelled out plenty of money. When your merchandise walks out the door, you lose what you’ve already paid for plus the profit you would have gained from the sell. Your loss can be huge, depending on your mark-up percentage. With all the options available to you, it’s a no-brainer to take the plunge and take a look at what Checkpoint Systems can do for you.
In order to stop shoplifting, you have to be willing to put in the time and research to see what tools you need. There are Checkpoint Labels, as mentioned above. These are versatile labels that can be adhered to almost any package. They are available in many shapes, sizes, and colors. For the grocery store battling meat theft, there are labels for you too and they are even microwavable. If you are in the clothing and accessory business, they can be attached to the price labels, or even sewn into a pocket of seam. Of course, you may decide to go with the Checkpoint Tags. These can be attached as pins or even via lanyard. They are made to be strong, and their seams are tight so they reduce the temptation for the shoplifter to attempt to pry them apart. The pins do not harm the merchandise, and they are easily detached.
Either option you choose is going to work hard to deter theft from your operation. There is little training required for your store staff to become loss prevention experts. They will get to know what specific items in your store are targeted the most and they can then employ the tools you have to stop it from happening. When your customers come in they will immediately be greeted by the Checkpoint Systems pedestals and they will see the tools you use throughout the store. It sends a silent message that you are aware of the threat and you take it seriously. They will more than likely decide it’s not worth it to steal from you. That’s better than a free ride in a police car any day.
