I recently read about a theft that occurred at a liquor store in which an accomplice to the thief distracted the clerk while the thief concealed several bottles of expensive liquor. The thieves did this several times during an evening, stealing $1000 worth of liquor.
This type of theft could happen anywhere. When a business is being operated by only one or two clerks at a time, it is not difficult to distract them while another one steals sight unseen. There is a way to deter this type of theft, by having bottle security.
Bottle security, such as the EASy bottle cap from Alpha Security, can help prevent theft. These bottle locks fit on the top of the liquor or wine bottles, and are removed by using a special key when the bottle is sold. Businesses using this type of bottle lock can display their high end liquor so that the honest customers can browse, handle, and read labels before purchasing. The bottle locks do not take away from the look of the bottle, but they significantly reduce the opportunity for the liquor to be stolen.
Bottle security is a good visual deterrent to the shoplifter as well.
Shoplifters would like to steal a bottle of liquor and actually be able to drink it. They do not want to have to struggle for hours to try and figure out how to remove a bottle lock. Considering that these shoplifters are having to resort to theft to obtain liquor, they are probably not the types of people that can quickly figure out how to outsmart a security device such as a bottle lock.
Liquors and wines can be stolen, but by investing in bottle security your risk of theft can be greatly reduced. In stock and profits will increase while loss will decrease. That’s a good way to do business.
Alpha Security is the innovator in the market. Starting with EASy bottle and now with the latest and greatest release, EASy Guarde.
