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 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.

Best Not To Overcomplicate Things- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Sometimes we get so caught up in a situation that it is easy for things to get overly complicated and messy. It is better to stop, take a step back and reevaluate what is really happening and start over with the solution.
I see so many small shops that have either heard of complex shoplifting scams and schemes or have seen one particularly complex incident and are now devising unnecessarily complicated plans to stop shoplifting.
I always recommend taking a step back and evaluating what the real scenario is, and what the best solution is. While those complex thefts are out there, most of the shoplifters use relatively low- tech and simple forms of shoplifting.
One of the most common shoplifting methods is to conceal merchandise in a bag. That includes handbags, totes, sports duffels and backpacks. A shoplifter thinks they can stuff product in their bag and walk out the door without being noticed.
The best way to deter and combat this kind of theft is to use security tags, commonly called EAS tags. The tag is a visual warning that the merchandise is being protected. Even if the shoplifter tries to steal the product by concealing it in a bag, the EAS alarms will still register.

What To Do? – Prevent Shoplifting

One of my employees was talking to me about a shoplifting incident they saw, but they didn’t know what to do about it. She was watching a customer trying on different pairs of earrings and went over to offer her assistance.
The woman quickly said she didn’t need anything, turned around and left. My employee started to clean up the mess this customer left behind. We don’t have a real good inventory control system or EAS devices designed specifically for jewelry and accessories.
The woman had taken several pairs of earrings off the cards, and everything was in a jumble on the counter. As my employee sorted through everything, she noticed that there were two pairs of earrings missing, and the customer looked like she was wearing one of them.
It was a difficult position for my employee to be in. She was probably right in her suspicions that the customer had walked off with at least one if not two pairs of our earrings.
Because we didn’t actually see what happened from the beginning it was too hard to actually tell if this was just a repeat customer who had purchased the earrings previously, or if she did steal them.
