Pass Them By- Alpha Shark Tag

Not all retail anti-theft devices are integrated with EAS tags to sound an alarm. Take the Alpha Security Alpha Shark Tag for example, there is no EAS imbedded in the tag, but it is still an effective way to maintain store profits.

By design, the Alpha Shark Tag is designed to be a deterrent against customers who want to “wardrobe” an item. That means the consumer intends to buy a piece of clothing with the sole intent on wearing it once and then returning the item with a receipt for a full refund.

These purchases happen usually for special events (weddings, holiday parties, prom) and are either high end items or single wear items that a customer simply can not afford or want to keep (furs, ball gowns, tuxedos and accessories).

The Alpha Shark Tag is a small plastic tag that attaches to the front of a garment in a very conspicuous place. If the customer tries to remove the tag, they will not be able to return the item without visible damage to the tag. An unsuspecting shoplifter might bypass such an item because they assume the tags are also retail anti-theft devices there to prevent shoplifting.
