In years past, bottle security was a difficult task, and EASy Bottle locks were not available. As time went on, technology grew and bottle security became a much easier reality.
As a District Loss Prevention Manager, I took over a store that had been experiencing poor inventory results, specifically in the liquor aisle. Looking at their numbers, it was obvious that merchandise about $25 was disappearing. This store had tools to make bottle security effective, yet they were not executing the program. Initially, I asked the manager if he knew of the any bottle security programs his store had available to them. He said he was told of a program called EASy Bottle security but didn’t know much about it. I went on asking more questions of the store employees and each said they knew of the program but were told by the manager to not worry about EASy Bottle locks right now because a bottle lock doesn’t make sales, merchandise makes sales. At this point, it was pretty obvious that the store manager was reluctant and somewhat negligent at managing his store. He had the tools to help prevent loss and boost his sales, yet he chose not to use them.
I asked the manager to the office and sat with him. I had a couple of bottles of liquor in the office, and a case of EASy Bottle locks. As we sat in the office, I trained him on EASy Bottle locks and showed him how easy it really was to install this bottle lock. It took no time at all. I explained the need for bottle security in his store, and showed him the negative reports reflecting the poor performance of his liquor aisle. Putting a bottle lock on merchandise over a particular price point would significantly decrease the amount of loss his store has been experiencing.
