Walk in, grab it, and walk out. This is a way that some shoplifters steal. Bold, yes, but not unheard of. If you own or operate a business that sells liquor or wine, you have probably been victim to this type of theft, as well as more conventional shoplifting techniques.
Bottle security for your wine and liquor bottles does exist. Options are available from Alpha Security, for example. Bottle locks such as the EASy Bottle device are caps that fit around the neck of the bottle, preventing it from being opened. When sold, the clerk can easily remove the bottle lock with a key. The lock can then be reused on a new bottle placed on the shelf.
Honest customers may be surprised that there is a problem with liquor theft, but those of you in the business know otherwise. It is frustrating to find an empty bottle hidden in a corner of your store or an empty place on the shelf where a bottle had been. Especially when that empty shelf is not the result of a sale.
Just like there are theft prevention devices available for all kinds of merchandise, there are options available for stores that sell wine and liquor. Bottle security is an excellent investment and will allow you to display your products in a manner in which customers can still browse them but where you do not have to worry about the theft of your higher end products.
Thieves do not want to walk out of your store with a stolen bottle of liquor only to have to spend hours figuring out how to get it open. Shoplifters are intimidated by bottle security and will move on to another unprotected business if they want to still try to steal.
With bottle locks, theft will decrease and instock will increase, along with your sales and profit. Alpha Security in your bottle lock program will put money on your bottom line.
