Time is On My Side, Sometimes – Alpha 3 Alarm

When you are trying to prevent shoplifting, it is equal parts effective customer service, and consistent use of retail anti theft devices.

It doesn’t matter if you have the most attentive employees who are spot on at providing the best possible service imaginable. At some point, your associates have to stop engaging a shoplifter and attend to other tasks.

I know. I have spent countless hours watching shoplifters. One time I spent thirty minutes watching and “cleaning” the fitting room, because there was a girl inside, who was going to steal a shirt, and kept checking to see if I left.

Eventually, I had to go attend to another managerial issue that could not wait. Sure enough, the girl took the shirt.

Not only did I lose the shirt, but I also lost the thirty minutes of productivity (and a bit of my ego) in the process.

This is a prime example of how retail anti theft devices pick up where customer service lets off. Alpha Security even makes different levels of retail anti theft devices based on what you need.

I personally like the Alpha Security Alpha 3 Alarm. It activates at the door if it is not removed. It also activates if someone tries to remove it without the proper detacher. The best part is the Alpha 3 Alarm generates an independent audible alarm. That means the alarm will sound from the product as it leaves the store- not just sounding an alarm at the exit doors.
