Spider Wrap


Open Merchandising- Prevent Shoplifting

Each time a retailer tries to lock up their high theft merchandise behind a case, or some other form of employee control, sales go down. It has been proven time and time again from every product assortment and specialty niche that has undergone a locking solution.
That pushes retailers back to the drawing board of how to protect their product and prevent theft at the hands of shoplifters and employees. In order to not create a negative impact on sales, high theft products need an open merchandising solution.
An open merchandising solution entails a customer’s ability to pick the product up at their leisure. It allows them to read labels, feel fabrics or materials, and inspect an item up close for quality. When the customer feels like they have gathered enough information to make a purchasing decision, they buy the item.
Some customers are turned off by the prospect of needing an employee to assist them. Either they do not want to endure a barrage of questions about what they are looking for, or the customer simply does not have the time to track down an employee to get the item for them. Open merchandising allows the customer to take control of their purchase.

Stay In Control- Prevent Shoplifting

Retail anti theft devices are the most notable and recognizable ways to prevent shoplifting, but did you know that basic retail operations and standards could play just as important part? What few retailers are aware of is that even with retail anti theft devices in place a store that does not follow its operational protocol is still at risk.
A shoplifter thrives on disorganization, unattended corners of a store, and a lack of employee presence. If you do not keep your store, clean, organized, and recovered promptly, a shoplifter can slip by undetected. If you have a table of jeans that are thrown about and disorganized, you have no way of knowing if something is missing. A table of carefully folded and laid out jeans is more likely to be noticed if one, or several, jeans are missing.
The same goes for high theft items that can be taken to an isolated corner. Sometimes moving a shelf or a table can create a better sightline for your employees to see what is going on. Similarly, your employees need to engage all customers. If they ignore your paying customers, you can be rest assured that they are ignoring the shoplifters too.

Didn’t See That- Alpha Nano Gate

I never worried about trying to prevent shoplifting out of the back office areas in my stores. So it never crossed my mind to install and Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate outside the office.
In a few of my stores, I have employed a visual manager. Their job was to keep signage up to date, and create visual displays using new and popular merchandise. 
Since they routinely took multiple products off the sales floor to carry out their job responsibilities, no one ever questioned why they had merchandise in their hands. I guess we should have been concerned because they were taking the product back to their office instead of keeping the items out on the sales floor.
What we didn’t realize, until after it was too late, was that this manager had been stealing merchandise for years. It was only after they left to pursue anther job, did we uncover the massive quantity of discarded price tags, retail anti theft devices, and labels stashed back in their office.
They used the access given with their position to cover up the extra product they were taking home. We should have had a policy that all merchandise stays out of the office, and installed an Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate to enforce that policy.

Don’t Overlook An Old Standby- Retail Anti Theft Devices

With all of the exciting advancements in retail anti theft devices, it is easy to overlook the effectiveness and usefulness of an old stand by- the Alpha Security Ink Tag.
The ink tag is a combination of typical retail anti theft devices (EAS tags) and vials of dye. Generally there is a glow in the dark ink and a dark blue or red dye in each tag. The point being, even if a shoplifter runs out of the store with merchandise that still bears an EAS tag, they will effectively destroy the merchandise when they tamper with the EAS tag to remove them.
These tags prevent shoplifting by providing the risk of getting caught by an alarm, in addition to ruining whatever they are trying to steal. If the merchandise is worthless, there is no point in stealing it. Clothing cannot be resold or worn easily when the ink stains the fabric beyond repair.
A suspected shoplifter who tampers with these tags will also get the ink stained on their hands. Investigator/ law enforcement will use those stains as evidence in court since the ink can be matched to the broken ink vials in the tags.

Get On The Band Wagon- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Alpha Security has just released their latest in retail anti theft devices. It is called the Banded Hard Tag. The tag’s functionality provides for the same features to prevent shoplifting that their other retail anti theft devices do. The difference is in the physical design of the Banded Hard Tag.
Instead of the conventional two part hard tag that consists of a pin and a “button”, the Alpha Security Banded Hard Tag is designed out of just one piece of molded plastic. By only having one piece to control instead of two, retailers will find a variety of benefits from using this new design.
The tags are small, measuring a mere 1.78”L x 0.637”W x 0.844”D. They prevent shoplifting of standard clothing items. Additionally, they provide protection for other merchandise that has historically been difficult to attach EAS hard tags to. Shoes, zippered bags (like comforters and sheet sets), and intimates can now benefit from shoplifting protection.
Even if the band is cut on the Banded Hard Tag, the pin will continue to protect the merchandise. Even better, there are replacement bands and pin to minimize long term costs associated with maintaining the EAS tags.

Mark It Down- Retail Anti Theft Devices

A common retail practice when selling just about anything is to mark down merchandise for a quicker sale. By marking down merchandise, it helps the retailer recoup at least minimal margin dollars on these items while clearing inventory for new products. The exception is for miss- mates caused by a lack of retail anti theft devices.
Earrings, and similar jewelry sold in pairs, are faced with a specific problem of being separated from its mate. It is actually pretty easy for an earring to get lost in a store setting. Customers can get pairs of earring tangled trying to take one off of a rounder or peg hook. They can take them off the jewelry cards and accidentally drop one. Sometimes someone who has an uneven number of piercing and doesn’t want to pay for a full set can steal them.
Regardless of how it happened, retailers are left with the same problem of what to do with the remaining earring. Since the half a set can’t be sold at full price, a markdown is generally taken. These marked down earrings are rarely successful in being sold. It is a last chance effort on recovering some money instead of taking it as a total loss.
The Alpha Security Alpha Jewel Lok is a locking mechanism that protects the merchandise, not the packaging. These locks affix to the posts of the earrings, preventing removal from the jewelry card. The Alpha Jewel Lok keeps the pairs together, preventing the need to prematurely mark down pairs of earrings.

Let The Tides Roll In- Alpha Security

High Efficiency laundry detergent is a high theft item in almost any store, in any market that carries it. The soap is expensive compared to its non-efficiency counterparts, but more importantly, it is used in making drugs. Because of its necessity in this illegal activity, dealers generally are more likely to steal it than to pay for it. So how do you prevent shoplifting such an irregular product?
Laundry bottles are hard plastic, curved and relatively heavy. EAS labels can be peeled off the outside, and would damage the contents if affixed to the inside. Straight pin EAS tags have nowhere to go, and puncturing the bottle would cause it to leak- spoiling the soap inside.
There are Alpha Security retail anti theft devices that are designed more for clothing security than detergent, but work surprisingly well. The Alpha 2 Alarm and Alpha 3 Alarm Cable Loks have a secured loop that wraps around the bottle’s handle. The Alpha 2 Alarm functionality will sound when the Cable Lok is tampered with, and the Alpha 3 Alarm version sounds directly from the Cable Lok, and not just the EAS door towers.

Pin It On- Alpha Jewel Lok

Alpha Security has a new addition to their Alpha Jewel Lok line of retail anti theft devices. This new lock is designed specifically for collectable or high priced pins. 
Just as with other kinds of jewelry, collectable pins are not immune to theft. Up until Alpha Security developed and released the Alpha Jewel Lok to prevent shoplifting, there were very minimal security solutions. Most of them involved an EAS label affixed to the jewelry card that was relatively easy to peel off and defeat.
The Alpha Jewel Lok is a successful solution, not just because the locks give maximum product and benefit denial, but because they are a great merchandising solution.  The low profile of the lock has a minimal impact on merchandising space. The cards will still fit on the existing spinner racks or peg hooks without reducing the inventory count within the space.
The lock also can’t be seen from the front of the card. That makes customers happy because they can look and feel every detail of the pins, and the vendor’s branding is not negatively impacted. The EAS components are still active within these small design retail anti theft devices.

You Can’t Take It With You- Alpha 3 Alarm

Shoplifters are continually trying to beat the system. Retailers are continually trying to beat the shoplifters, and so the cycle goes. Each time a shoplifter develops a new plan, there are new retail anti theft devices to thwart them.  Unfortunately, every time there are new tools to prevent shoplifting, shoplifters begin to find ways to defeat them.
As a result of this cycle, Alpha Security has come up with a different approach to prevent shoplifting. They developed the Alpha 3 Alarm retail anti theft devices. This is an EAS tag with an extra deterrent for shoplifting.
A 1 alarm EAS tag will create an audible alarm from the door pedestals, if a tag passes through the doors without being deactivated first. Shoplifters can tamper with the tags to defeat them, or they might risk setting off the alarm and leaving with the merchandise anyway.
An Alpha 2 Alarm takes care of half the problem. The second part of the alarm is an audible directly from the EAS tag if the tag is tampered with.
The Alpha 3 Alarm takes the first two parts and adds an audible alarm directly from the EAS tag if the tag passes through the doors without being deactivated.
No longer can shoplifters take their stolen product with them without being heard everywhere they go.

Discard the Merchandise – Alpha 3 Alarm

When a shoplifter feels like they have been caught, they can do a number of things, from running away, fighting, or even discarding the merchandise. When we look for solutions to prevent shoplifting, we look for ways to let the shoplifter feel like they have been caught.
Ultimately, we are trying to get the shoplifter to discard our merchandise without further incident. Trying to make a detention can be problematic, and can end up costing more money and resources if the case is pushed through the court system for prosecution.
When we employ Alpha 3 Alarm retail anti theft devices as part of our strategy, we are creating a situation where the shoplifters benefit by discarding the product on their own. 
When the shoplifter leaves the store with an Alpha Security Alpha 3 Alarm protected product, the exit doors alarm, so do the actual retail anti theft devices attached to the merchandise. Even if the shoplifter continues to leave with the merchandise, there is an audible alarm on the product- making it impossible for the shoplifter not to be noticed.
They will discard the product, which allows the retailer to follow the sound until they find and retrieve the merchandise. All without further incident or risk of conflict.
