How can you stop retail theft and shoplifting?
Believe it or not if you own a retail store there will always be an item stolen from you. The culprit believe it or not can even be your own employee. So, how do you stop retail theft and shoplifting in your store?
When someone walks inside a mall and they see an item which they really like there will always be a temptation to attempt to have this item either legally by buying the item or illegally by stealing the item. Items which can easily be can easily be concealed are the most susceptible to this.
Some of the items which have the highest rate of shrinkage include:
- Apparel and fashion accessories such as shoes, and sports related clothing.
- Do-it-Yourself and home improvement especially power tools and door locks,
- Electronics and including mobile phones and gaming gadgets.
- Food and beverage with wines and spirits, tobacco and fresh meat on the top of the list.
- Health and beauty most specially razor blades, make-up and fragrances.
If you own the items above then your store is in danger from shoplifters and retail theft. How can you protect your store?
The solution is actually very simple – to prevent shoplifters from getting valuable items your store should have a reliable theft detection system. This system should not be easily manipulated and hacked by shoplifters through foils, jammers and more.
Sensormatic by Tyco patented a detection system which is very efficient. The Electronic-Article-Surveillance (EAS) is an acousto-magnetic system which uses a definite radio frequency, 53Khz. This frequency prevents other devices from creating a noise and distract the system. Shoplifters can try to conceal or use various methods but Sensormatic will surely detect them almost 100% of the time.
We are not saying that theft in your store will be totally prevented since there are other things that might be causing it but by using a detection system that works you will be assured that your products are well protected. Sensormatic by Tyco is used by the world’s top retail brands and produced by a company with a proven track record of more than 30 years..
