Customer theft has been a continuing problem for spirits retailers since the first product was displayed for sale. Certain brands, particularly those that are popular and/or have a high price point had a habit of disappearing from the shelves without having been paid for, certainly an annoyance to the store owner.
Retailers tried various means of liquor bottle security including limiting displays of the high loss items, leaving them behind or under the counter, or displaying them only in locked cabinets like they were artifacts in a museum.
This certainly had the desired effect of reducing customer theft, but it also had a negative impact on sales, since customers are more apt to buy merchandise they can pick up, handle and inspect.
Alpha Security has the solution for retailers that allows both open display of the product and liquor bottle security to discourage and prevent theft on a couple of levels.
Once installed on the bottle, one type of bottle lock can’t be removed without damaging the bottle and ruining the contents, denying use of the product to the thief. This bottle lock fits over the top of the bottle and can only be removed at the point of sale by the clerk with a proprietary key. The EASy bottle liquor bottle security contains a device that is sensed by a system at the entrance that will emit an alarm if the EASy bottle lock hasn’t been removed.
Another type attaches around the neck of the bottle and also contains the EAS device. None of the bottle locks can be removed or defeated without a key, a huge deterrent to shoplifters.
Shoplifters know and avoid stores that use bottle locks as their chief means of bottle security.
