Finally free to display products openly…

It seems like every national retailer has gotten into the perfume and cologne business, but too often the selections are very limited on what we can find. So off we went to our major shopping area, where we knew there would be the best selection of colognes. I was doing some shopping with my husband over the weekend. He needed some new cologne before he left on a business trip.

 It had been a while since we had been out looking for colognes for him. When we got to the first store, I was simply amazed by how out in the open all the merchandise was. I was so used to going to a counter full of testers and having a sales clerk give me the actual product.

 Now everything was right within reach. I knew it was designed for a different type of service. Help yourself, instead of catered to you by a sales clerk. I was glad to see that the help yourself mentality did not include shoplifters. The store had carefully included retail anti-theft devices on all of their perfumes and colognes to prevent retail theft.

Sometimes you’re on your game, sometimes you have to catch up…

I would love to say that all of the ways I try to prevent retail theft are well thought out, time tested, pro-active solutions. Really, I would love to say that. The reality is that a lot of what I do is reactionary.

 I move around from one hot spot to the next trying to stay on top of the losses, much less trying to stay ahead of the game. 

It is nice to be able to use retail anti-theft devices like cheap tags and cheap labels when and where I need them the most. I can add them to a new area being hit as soon as we discover significant losses starting.

 I can also stop tagging other areas if the shrink, and the demand, for an item decreases. It saves payroll hours where I don’t need them, and lets us focus on the areas that do.

 As long as I stay active and alert, I can reduce the stores shrink to a minimum. Every once in a while, I do get caught off guard; luckily, it doesn’t take me long to catch back up.

Shrink Solutions: Now Made in the USA!!

This latest economic downturn has found many business owners caught between a rock and a hard place. On one hand they are looking for innovative ways to cut costs to make up for sluggish sales. Those cuts range from payroll reduction to narrowing of business hours to, unfortunately, loss prevention cuts. Theft is on the rise due to people being hit hard economically, cutting loss prevention investments at this time is a huge risk.

As a Loss Prevention Consultant I find myself in a constant battle to keep business owners from cutting the only tools they have to deter theft. The professional shoplifters see this as their chance to take full advantage of any and all businesses that make cuts thus causing even more loss and requiring even more cuts to save the business. This is when I usually receive the frantic call for help. By the time I enter the picture the business owner is on the slippery slope to Armageddon. The challenge to me has been to convince these business owners that they have to spend some money for the purchase of retail anti-shoplifting tools stop the free flow of loss via shrink.

Trying to sell retail anti-theft devices while the economy is so bad can be a challenge unless you can properly articulate the issues the business is facing and tie them to real world anti shoplifting solutions.

When I receive the initial call I immediately set up a meeting with the owner to do a walkthrough of the business and then a detailed review of the inventory results for the past four inventory cycles. This allows me to correlate category losses to the physical salesfloor. At that point I am able to pinpoint weak spots where product is leaving the store. Once I put together the summary of where I suspected losses occurred the owners are open to see the solutions I put forward. Most of the time the businesses that have the largest losses do not have an EAS (electronic article surveillance) system, or they have one that they do not use due to tags and labels being to expensive.

 

While doing my own homework to find retail security tools that are both effective and inexpensive I came across a company called RBC Security Solutions. This company is the epitome of flexibility within a constantly changing economy. The executives at this company saw the changes within the retail world and instead of running away they decided to find ways to address loss in an affordable way. The biggest coup was the fact that they found a way to develop inexpensive EAS labels and tags that are compatible with Checkpoint EAS systems. This is huge considering many small retailers not only cut back payroll but also either drastically cut the amount of product to be tagged within their stores or shut the EAS system down completely.

Though in the short term it may have appeared to save the company money, once the first inventory cycle hit it became apparent that the money saved was dwarfed by the loss incurred by shrink which is compounded by the loss of sales. Being able to show a business owner the difference in cost between the checkpoint tags and the RBC Security Solution tags (which are manufactured here in the USA) is a huge opportunity to cater to small businesses that are struggling to survive. RBC Security Solutions is a great example of American capitalism.

100% Accuracy

There are three sides to shrink. There are external thefts (shoplifters), internal thefts (employees), and operational errors. When you use retail anti-theft devices like an Electronic Article Surveillance System or EAS system to prevent retail theft, the common thought is concerning the external element. What a lot of retailers don’t know is that an EAS system is more than just an anti-shoplifting device.

 I often challenge my cashiers to strive for 100% accuracy in their checkouts. We use a cart test to validate this accuracy. If the cashier is not at 100% I show them what they missed and why. I then show them how those mistakes turn into losses. We spend time training the entire front-end staff that those mistakes, however small they might be, can cause a loss and how those errors are also likely to set off the stores EAS system.

 By responding to the alarms, my cashiers have a chance to discover and fix their mistakes before they become a shrink problem. The EAS system will catch the activated tags or labels that pass through the doors, regardless of it being a shoplifter, an employee stealing, or an honest mistake.

Set up an in store warning system

I am often amazed by how many things have warning labels on them, from household cleaners to chewing gum, it seems like there is no end to the warnings.

 I am even more amazed by how many small businesses do not use any type of in store warnings to prevent retail theft.

 What I mean, is that you walk into a shop and there is no signage regarding video surveillance of the premises, or how shoplifters will be prosecuted. There aren’t even any types of anti theft devices to warn shoplifters that the merchandise is being guarded, even if a sales clerk is not around.

 Just because you have the ability to stop and apprehend a shoplifter, who has that kind of time? Between waiting for the shoplifter to do his thing, the police to arrive, paperwork to be filled out, and then to have to go to court multiple times to testify, why do it?

 Setting up a clear signal of warning to all who enter will save you time, and hassle in addition to saving your inventory.

Involve Associates to Prevent Retail Theft

Sales associates are the first line of defense against shoplifting. Good customer service shows a potential shoplifter that they have eyes watching them. Including associates in the process of asset protection can help in the fight against theft.

                Share with associates the reasons why Anti-theft devices like Cheap Tags and Cheap Labels  are important and how they function. Start when the associate is new to the job, but don’t let it stop there. Shoplifters always seem to be inventing new ways to steal so fill associates in by updating them on techniques being used. Tell specific stories, everyone loves a rousing story about the latest theft case. Show them photos of known ORC (Organized Retail Crime) groups in the area. They will feel remarkable when they identify a known shoplifter in your store.

                Make sure associates are familiarized with their merchandise so they can deter customers that ticket switch. Inform them about the refund policies at your store so they can easily identify a fraudulent return. Also, offering a reward program or just simple praise is a good way to keep associates involved in the process to prevent retail theft.
