It Takes A Well Rounded Manager To Prevent Shoplifting

We all work with difficult personalities, right? If you’re out there reading this and you don’t, well you should consider yourself very lucky. There hasn’t been a job, office, or store that I’ve worked in where I didn’t have at least one difficult personality to work with. One that stands out involved a store manager who was tired of shoplifting in his store. He would call me every week it seemed to complain about the theft problem and tell me that my department (LP) wasn’t doing enough to prevent shoplifting in his store. Being is that preventing losses was literally, all I did, I took it just a little personal. To make matters worse, this same store manager would resist every LP initiate that came down. 
This particular store was having a huge issue with electronics being stolen at the store. As a way to prevent shoplifting of these items, I had our offices send him a few cases of Alpha Spider Wraps. A few weeks later, I was conducting some visits in stores and found that the cases were still sitting in the warehouse. The store manager told me that he didn’t have the payroll budget to spend in order for his employees to put those devices on the products that he, himself, was complaining about being commonly shoplifted. Would’ve taken 10 minutes and he could’ve saved thousands of dollars in shrink. 
There are in fact some of you, right now, sitting at home, or in your office reading this, saying to yourself, “Wow… I’m kind of like that manager.” Even though you’ll never say it to anyone but yourself, you know it. It’s not because you want to battle, but it’s because you’re thinking too much like a manager. I used to think that a good LP professional had a background in law enforcement, or degrees in criminal justice. What I’ve learned is the opposite. Some of the best people that work for me now have MBA’s, degrees in marketing and even Human Resource management. I bring this up for one reason. In order to prevent shoplifting, you have see if from not only an LP perspective, but also from a business view as well. 
You own your business. Someone comes to you and says, “Here’s this tool. If you implement this tool today, you will increase your profits.” Chances are, you’re going to use that tool. That exactly what EAS devices are to retailers. Tools to reduce losses, thus increasing your profits. Don’t be that manager anymore. Accept the tools available to you and prevent shoplifting losses before they ever happen.

How Does Your Store Prevent Shoplifting?

Our company pays an outside vendor to come perform our annual inventories.  That keeps the checks and balances system in place, and helps keep the store management honest in their accountability of losses.  (Several instances of managers attempting to fraudulently pad their inventory numbers by filling empty boxes, or fudging pre-counted merchandise have been discovered, but that is a whole other blog for another day!)  We do what we can to Prevent Shoplifting, deter employee theft, and watch for any paperwork and vendor errors all year long, but the actual count of the store is crucial.  
We need this reporting because we have to know where we are losing merchandise in order to stop it in the future.  We are given a “shrink” budget because some loss is inevitable, but if we are getting hit and don’t even know it, then that budget won’t cut it.  The inventory crew found several empty packages during the count: a muscle stimulator, allergy medication, and an over the counter diet drug.  Those three items combined for about a $250 retail loss, and we didn’t even know they were missing. 
It’s not easy to Prevent Shoplifting.  It takes planning, execution, and in many cases Retail Anti-theft Devices.  From now on those electric muscle stimulator boxes will be protected with Alpha Spider Wraps.  I don’t want them locked up because they are truly an impulse item.  People browsing the pain relievers may decide that creams and pills aren’t enough anymore, so I want them to have the option of choosing that product instead.  But if I hide it behind the counter, even if I put a sign there explaining it’s new location, the chances I will sell any become basically zero.  The same goes for the large quantity count boxes of allergy medications.  I need those available on the shelf.  They obviously have a much higher retail than the 30-day boxes, but they also offer a significant convenience to the customers.  So the answer may be to encase these size boxes in Alpha Keepers. 
The idea is to Prevent Shoplifting, not to lose sales.  Sales fixes problems.  When you determine your “shrink”, it is the percentage of loss compared to your sales.  
There are so many choices when it comes to Retail Anti-theft Devices, you have to decide what works best for your merchandise.  If you specialize in cosmetics you will use much different product protection than a store that sells electronics.  Both types of stores have to Prevent Shoplifting or they cannot survive, but they have to know which items are the most vulnerable and which devices to use that will deter theft.  
I do not have the space to put everything up behind the checkout, nor do I ever want to.  Shoppers prefer to choose their items, pick them up, read the instructions, etc.  By utilizing the many tools from Alpha Technology, we are able to protect the items on the shelves while still giving the customers access to the items they came to buy.

Merchandise Availability- Alpha Security

When we look at ways to prevent shoplifting, we are really trying to do is to increase our merchandise availability. Sure, no one really wants thieves and crooks taking advantage of our businesses, but the bottom line is about maximizing our availability to increase our revenue from customer sales.
Retail anti theft devices, such as the one developed by industry leader Alpha Security, are tried and true tools specifically created to prevent shoplifting. As shoplifting decreases, our inventories become more accurate and more plentiful (due to a lack of missing merchandise). We, as retailers, spend significantly less time worrying about whether or not we have a particular item in stock, and more time getting the customers to actually buy them.
When customers can walk into a location and find the item they want, and the quantity they need, sales increase. Taking it one step further, you also get the advantage of repeat business. The customer knows they can rely on your retail location to be in stock for their consumer needs. By reducing theft through the use of Alpha Security retail anti theft devices, you assure you have the right in stock availability to satisfy your customer’s needs.

New In Box-Alpha Spider Wrap

Some inventory items are valuable only if they can be resold as NIB or New In Box. Any damage to the box, or a lack of tags is an indicator that the product is either used, or stolen- both of which reduces the resale value as well as the actual ability to be resold. Other items can be sold without the box. In those cases, the Alpha Security Alpha Spider Wrap is an effective deterrent.
Power tools are a good example of an item that does not need to be sold new in box. In some cases, it is even easier to sell power tools if they look to be slightly used. These tools are taken to construction sites and sold with a story that they no longer need them, or they didn’t like the tool and bought a different one.
The Alpha Spider Wrap retail anti theft devices prevent shoplifting by keeping the power tools in their boxes. This makes them harder to steal. A large box is more obvious walking out a door, than a power tool tucked inside of a coat. If the Alpha Spider Wrap wires are cut to eliminate the tools packaging, an audible alarm is activated, alerting everyone around that the box is being tampered with.

On The Way Out- Prevent Shoplifting

If you are one of the 95% of retailers who has experienced shoplifting in your stores over the last few years, you might be trying to figure out how to build a better mousetrap that will prevent shoplifting. The success will be in not stopping the shoplifters once they have started trying to steal, but rather stopping them from wanting to steal once they are in your store.
That subtle difference can mean the world to your shrink results and to your bottom line. Many retailers don’t realize just how hard it is to stop a shoplifter once they have started the shoplifting 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. Now the shoplifter has a goal in mind, and a plan. Once they have the merchandise in their possession, they are determined to get back out of the store, sometimes by whatever means they deem necessary- including violence.
By beefing up your retail anti theft devices and other kinds of store security, you start to weigh the scales back into your favor, persuading the shoplifter to steal somewhere less risky.

Lurking In The Shadows- Alpha Nano Gate

I think every retailer I have ever worked for has stumbled across a shoplifter lurking in a back corner. They sit and they wait for an opportunity to remove retail anti theft devices or conceal their shoplifting efforts.
We have all seen the signs of these shoplifting safe havens. When you look under shelves, or tables you can find a mass of torn of price tags, or sometimes locate hoards of merchandise that a shoplifter is ferreting away to steal later on when they think the coast is clear.
While the obvious solution is to open up these back corners and areas, it is not always practical (or physically possible) to try and remerchandise the entire store to eliminate them. 
Another solution is to use retail anti theft devices like the Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate. This is a product that is designed to fit into small spaces, or back areas of a store that lend themselves to shoplifting.
The Alpha Nano Gate is a miniature EAS tower that attaches onto a wall or other stable spot. As a customer or shoplifter enters the area with tagged merchandise, an alarm will go off alerting staff to a potential theft issue in progress.

One For Each- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Alpha Security Alpha Jewel Lok is actually comprised of three different locking mechanisms for earrings. They recognized that they could not just make one style of Alpha Jewel Lok that would sufficiently protect all three styles of earrings available on the market today.
The Alpha Jewel Lok retail anti theft devices are hard to defeat locks that secure earrings onto the jewelry cards, preventing a shoplifter from easily stealing the merchandise.
The three kinds of locks are for hoop earrings, stud earrings and French wire earrings. Each lock designed with the specific characteristics of each earring in mind.
The stud earring locks not only attach the earring to the jewelry card by securing the post on the back, but they also incorporate a “parking” area for the backs to be kept. As anyone who wears a stud earring knows, the back is just as essential as the actual earring is when you are wearing them.
The French wires attach onto the wire with a low profile design that cannot be seen from the front. This helps keep a better visual appearance for these often flashy or highly decorative earrings.
Hoop earrings also need their own locks to prevent shoplifting. Just like the other two styles, the hoop posts are secured to the card from the back providing a secure deterrent from shoplifters.

The best feature of the Alpha Security Alpha 2 Alarm products is their anti tamper alarm system. Built into each of their Alpha 2 Alarm retail anti theft devices is an audible alarm that emits a loud siren when the device is tampered with.
When you prevent shoplifting, having retail anti theft devices that monitors your merchandise every step of the way is an important feature to have.

However, there are more organized, career criminals that will make attempts at defeating these devices. When you use the Alpha 2 Alarm products, you reduce the likelihood of even a career criminal attempting to defeat the EAS tags. 
The ones who still make their attempts will discover that they set off the alarm in the store while tampering with the device. Not only will it potentially stop the theft in progress, but it will also help you identify potential thieves in your store as their anonymity has been blown,

Unlock The Code- Alpha Security

Alpha Security uses many different kinds of retail anti theft devices in their efforts to prevent shoplifting and reduce inventory shrink. While there are many retail anti theft devices, Alpha Security wanted retailers to be able to use a universal key to detach them. This would limit confusion at the point of sale and ensure speedy checkout, as cashiers would not have to flip between multiple keys to detach multiple styles of retail anti theft devices.
The problem comes from multiple retailers using the same kind of detacher key. Shoplifters are starting to steal the detacher keys and use them for their own theft purposes. We are even seeing employees accidentally lose their key and shoplifters finding them and using them.
Needless to say, it would be unbearably expensive for a small business to have to reinvest in an entirely new security system just because of one lost or stolen detacher key. Alpha Security, realizing that this was starting to arise as a major issue, immediately began to develop a new key: The S3verify Key and devices. 
Now, these keys and retail anti theft devices have a store specific code. Similar to a chip encoded car key, without the proper key, the locks will not open. A stolen key will erase itself preventing a shoplifter to use it.

This would limit confusion at the point of sale and ensure speedy checkout, as cashiers would not have to flip between multiple keys to detach multiple styles of retail anti theft devices.

The problem comes from multiple retailers using the same kind of detacher key. Shoplifters are starting to steal the detacher keys and use them for their own theft purposes. We are even seeing employees accidentally lose their key and shoplifters finding them and using them.

Needless to say, it would be unbearably expensive for a small business to have to reinvest in an entirely new security system just because of one lost or stolen detacher key. Alpha Security, realizing that this was starting to arise as a major issue, immediately began to develop a new key: The S3verify Key and devices

Now, these keys and retail anti theft devices have a store specific code. Similar to a chip encoded car key, without the proper key, the locks will not open. A stolen key will erase itself preventing a shoplifter to use it.
