Most retailers are aware that there are two main kinds of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS for short) systems. One is based off of Radio Frequencies (RF) or Electromagnetic compatibilities. The question is: what if you don’t have a bottle security system in place? Do you have to have one to utilize bottle locks?
A simple evaluation will help guide you to the next step, which would be enhancing your liquor store’s bottle security. Think about the following questions:
Do you see the biggest inventory losses coming from theft (either from shoplifters or employees)? Or…
Do you have an issue with unauthorized in- store sampling (opened bottles, customers/ minors caught drinking inside your store)?
Or do you have a problem with both?
If you have a theft issue, especially if there is employee theft of merchandise, you probably want to invest in a complete bottle security system. Employees and shoplifters are less likely to steal when there are operational and inventory controls in place. A full EAS system will be worth your investment and provide reasonable ROI.
If you are having an issue with in store sampling, look primarily to bottle locks. Alpha Security bottle locks provide consistent and successful product denial benefits, without the need to attach them to an EAS system.
