It’s In The Bag- Retail Anti Theft Devices

While highly complex thefts are out there, most common shoplifters use relatively low- tech and simple forms of shoplifting. One of the most frequent 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.
Beyond the use of EAS tags, you can also use your employees to deter these concealed thefts. You can ask that all large bags are kept at the register to prevent that kind of access to a shoplifting tool. It’s not the most customer friendly method, but some retailers are still doing it.
You can also train employees to keep an eye out for bags that look flat or empty for their size. The shoplifter might intentionally keep the bag empty so they have plenty of room to stuff merchandise into it.

Repeat Customer – Prevent Shoplifting

A woman had taken several pairs of earrings off the cards, and everything was in a jumble on the counter. One of our employees was watching this customer 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. 
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.
I know that there are EAS devices designed to keep jewelry on the cards and prevent this kind of situation from happening. It would have been easier on my employee who didn’t know if she should have done something differently to prevent a possible theft.
We are also now suspicious of a potentially honest customer. We don’t know if she stole, or why she left so fast. It could just as easily been an honest situation, and someone else made the mess and stole (or lost) the earrings.

Using The Tools Wisely- Alpha Nano Gate

Do you really need retail anti theft devices throughout your entire store? For some small businesses, the answer is no. They may be looped into the expense of trying to prevent shoplifting throughout the entire square footage because they are not aware that there are small effective and cost efficient alternatives.
The Alpha Security Alpha Nano Gate is just such a retail anti theft device. Say you have a general merchandise store that has a small area built in for electronics like GPS or mobile phones. Since these are items that you do not want to have floating around on their own, you have made a type of store in store location for them.
By installing an Alpha Nano Gate on specifically for this in store location, you only have to use the Alpha 3 Alarm on these high theft items. If anyone passes by the Alpha Nano Gate with an Alpha 3 Alarm tagged product, the audible alarm will activate and the product’s location can be found.
This saves the money needed to purchase and maintain the big Checkpoint towers by the exit doors, and puts your retail anti theft devices only where they are needed.

Online or Mail Order Returns- Alpha Shark Tag

The wave of the future used to be plastics. Now the wave of the future is in online presence. Even if you haven’t started a website yet, it might not be long before you start to explore the options of being an online retailer. Alpha Shark Tag will help with the transition.
The biggest benefit to being an online retailer is the labor hours involved. Your customers are not in the store, there is minimal employee interaction, and a greater transaction dollar amount due to the 100% credit card usage (versus cash).
The down side, in particular with clothing, is that it is harder to determine if a customer has worn the clothing they purchased before they returned it. Obviously, the customer will have to try the item on for fit once they receive it, but did they wear it out on the town?
By using the Alpha Security Alpha Shark Tag on your mail order/ online orders, you allow the customer to try the product on, but have a better answer for whether the item was used before it was returned, or if it was simply tried on for size.

Not A Replacement- Prevent Shoplifting

Alpha Shark Tags are frequently lumped into the category of retail anti theft devices. This is mostly due to being made by Alpha Security who specializes in solutions to prevent shoplifting. The other is because there is a very limited niche that they belong in. The end result is that they are considered a form of retail anti theft devices.
It is important for the actual retailers to understand their role in the process and also that they are not an actual retail anti theft device in the traditional sense of the term.
 What the Alpha Shark Tags do is to prevent a form of return fraud called wardrobing. Compared to EAS tags, which are designed to be removed by the cashier at the point of sale, these tags do the exact opposite.
They are meant to be left on after the point of purchase and the customer is instructed how to remove them at home. Only after a customer is sure that they want to keep the items should they remove the tags. They may be rejected for a return if the tag removed.

Where Did I Set That Down? – Retail Anti Theft Devices

I have a problem with loosing things. I will be the first to admit that I should be better organized at home, especially since I send the majority of my time at work doing things to prevent shoplifting and making sure my stores do not loose things- like their inventory.
I often consider buying those remote tags that you can put on your remote control or your car keys. All you have to do is push a button and you hear an audible alarm or see a flashing light and you are drawn to your missing item’s location. It would be extremely handy for when I misplace my cell phone- especially when I leave it on silent!
Well Alpha Security, with all of their ingenuity and innovation have taken this concept and applied it to their line of retail anti theft devices.
Inside each of these retail anti theft devices are alarms that are triggered when a product is being tampered with or is being stolen. Inside the store, an early warning alarm sounds when the devices are being tampered with. If a shoplifter leaves the store with a product, the alarm will sound allowing you to follow the noise and retrieve your lost/-stolen merchandise.

Layers Of Protection- Alpha Security

When you are trying to prevent shoplifting, it is rarely a case of less is more. You can never be too careful, or too cautious. When I consult for small businesses, they often ask which items should have retail anti theft devices. 
I go through their high shrink and high dollar items first. Then I tell them that anything else is optional. If it isn’t an issue, then it may not be worth the added cost of unnecessary retail anti theft devices. But I tell them they need to do what will make them feel more secure with their inventory controls.
I also suggest using a layered approach to their retail security. When they use the Alpha Security product lines they can find solutions that are specific to their differing product groups. There is no reason why a retail business needs to try and fit the same EAS tag to every piece of merchandise. It simply is ineffective. 
Because Alpha Security uses different designs and abilities for different kinds of products it is easy to layer on the merchandise security to prevent shoplifting.

Shoplifting Sandwich- Retail Anti Theft Devices

Our latest shoplifter gave us, and our retail anti theft devices a run for our money.
This particular customer came into our store and used a wheelchair and our handheld shopping basket in his lap. He would go about his business and come to the register to pay for the items. No matter how diligent my cashiers were when they rang him up; the EAS alarm was set off when he left. We would recheck for retail anti theft devices, but could not find them. Not wanting to cause him any more inconvenience, we would let him go about his way. We knew the alarm was a way to prevent shoplifting, but we couldn’t see any indication of theft.
After about a month of this happening every time he came to shop, we started to get suspicious that something else was going on. We watched as he came in one day and realized that he had picked up two shopping baskets, not one. 
At first we thought they had just stuck together, until we saw inside the baskets. As it turned out, he was hiding merchandise in one of the baskets, stacking the second one on top and adding more merchandise that he would pay for. When he left, he would leave with all of the extra merchandise sandwiched between our shopping baskets- unpaid for.
If it hadn’t been for the retail anti theft devices setting the alarms off, no telling how long it would have been before we caught on to his plan.

Long Term Business Relationship- Prevent Shoplifting

Looking through a local news report, I realized that I recognized one of the names of a suspect from a recent police sting operation. It was a habitual shoplifter that we had been trying to apprehend almost ten years ago. 
This particular shoplifter was stealing from several locations and would sometime return the items without receipt- using multiple aliases to get around our refund system.
Eventually we did apprehend her and ban her from our stores in addition to having her prosecuted. I guess that didn’t mean much to her, since she has continued with her life of crime all of these years.
What we didn’t understand at the time was that this shoplifter we had assumed was just a small time problem, was actually a major part of a local crime ring. Her entire life was dedicated to stealing product from retailers to later resell to other local businesses. 
She set herself up as a local distributor with lower than average pricing- making it an attractive low cost solution for these local businesses. Most of these businesses had no idea that they were actually buying stolen product. Many had been doing business with this woman for years without any indication of how she obtained her merchandise for distribution.

What You Lose When You Aren’t Losing- Prevent Shoplifting

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.
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. As a result, many retailers often miss out on the fact that while they are no longer missing inventory due to theft, they are missing out on valuable sales.
In many cases, the lost sales out number the losses from theft of these items.
