Many states are toying with the idea of privatizing liquor and alcohol sales. Instead of state run and regulated locations, anyone can potentially apply to have a license to sell wines, liquors and other alcohols out of their stores. This means big box retailers, grocery stores and local corner shops all would have an equal chance to get in on the action, should they choose to. Unfortunately, many who are entering into these inventories do not understand the implications of needing and not having liquor bottle security.
Near the Seattle, Washington area, where liquor sales were privatized within the last few years, the moment everyone was open for business organized crime struck big and struck hard. Many of the stores did not think through the necessity for liquor bottle security to be in place. As a result, some early reports came from businesses loosing upwards of a thousand dollars a day in liquor bottle theft.
By the time the stores figured out what was going on and the losses that they had incurred, hundreds of thousands of dollars in inventory and potential sales had been lost. Liquor bottle security quickly moved into position as the number one priority for these businesses.
Since then, the inventory losses have slowed down. It has been primarily attributed to the implementation of liquor bottle security and overall liquor bottle theft awareness.
