Bottle locks have been around for a few years now. Yet there are many liquor retailers that still prefer to sell their merchandise without any sort of liquor bottle security. Many still believe their customers are not stealing or are not “sampling” the merchandise.
A store manager I had recently spoken with was that sort of manager. He didn’t really believe his customers were stealing merchandise, or tasting what was on the shelf. We talked about his merchandise and more importantly what he thought was causing the loss. Bottle security was the least of his assumptions. He was more certain that the vendor was cheating him, or that the bottles were either damaged or lost during transit versus the customers actually taking them from his store.
I knew exactly what was happening in his store and the shrink numbers were proof of that. All of his beliefs were true, vendors do cause loss, bottles do get damaged during transportation, but even more relevant is shoplifting. Bottle security and bottle locks certainly would help to stop any sort of customer theft, but the manager would have to be sold on the process of using a bottle lock.
After a more in depth discussion about bottle locks, the store manager was willing to bottle security.
