That $25 bottle actually cost you a lot more in real dollars that liquor bottle security would have prevented. You have to make up for the theft of that bottle just to break even. If your store operates on a typical 2% profit margin. That’s the margin after payroll, tax, insurance, the light bill, and any other overhead you will have to sell and additional $1,250 JUST TO BREAK EVEN ($25/.02). That’s right, the next $1250 goes for making up for the $25 bottle the shoplifter stole. The simple solution is bottle security for your sales floor.
Alpha Security has the best bottle lock products on the market. They are high quality and very easy to use. One twist or push of a button and the bottle security is in place. Liquor bottle security has really come of age. The bottle lock is low profile, light and tough. It requires a special Alpha Security key to unlock them. The bottle lock is also reusable. The cashier simply removes it and drops it into a basket under the cash wrap to be used again on another bottle.
If you lose $500 a week in shoplifting losses that is $26,000 per year in theft that translates to $1.3 million dollars a year in actual losses to you. No company can make money in that environment.
One of the first liquor bottle security devices that Alpha Security created is called EASy Bottle (Electronic Article Surveillance). EASy Bottle is a solid black bottle lock that comes in several sizes. It prevents the bottle from being opened in the store and if a shoplifter attempts to steal the bottle then the bottle lock sets off the Checkpoint System at the doors. There are now newer versions such as Crystal Guard and EASy Guarde. Those bottle locks have clear acrylic tops and are a much lower profile. They fit on the shelf better and have a much smaller over all footprint. EASy Bottle bottle locks are so popular that they are still available.
