Now, liquor bottle security has always been a topic of concern for many retailers in the liquor business. The task of inventorying, merchandising and securing the product for the customer and to protect profits can be overwhelming at times.
I remember seeing some stand alone liquor stores that had staff on duty just to watch or act as security for the liquor bottles. Effective? Yes, however, not cost efficient, nor does it provide a comfortable environment for the customer shopping the business.
Alpha security has been around for awhile and offers a great solution to bottle security and bottle locks. As a customer, it’s frustrating for me to have to walk into a store, and wait for a customer service associate to meet me in the liquor aisle and unlock a security cage or glass cabinet. Not only are these cabinets and cages unattractive, in actuality, they probably cause more loss of sales than shoplifters. As a matter of experience, bottle security and bottle locks from Alpha Security provide the necessary devices to secure your profits.
One of my stores had been experiencing customer theft of liquor. The store took the old fashioned approach to liquor bottle security and kept the high end liquor items locked in glass cabinet, while the lower end items, usually below $25, was kept on the open shelf. Bottle security was/is important. As you would expect, thieves stole more of the lower end stuff, in fact so much of it, that is killed the sales for the entire department.
We decided to go with Alpha Security products and installed bottle locks and EASy bottle cap locks on all bottles above $10. Almost as soon as we completed this program, we saw instant results. First, I stopped getting calls from the store telling me we need more liquor bottle security. Second, we stopped seeing big gaps on the liquor shelves where the merchandise was removed. The process of installing these EASy bottle locks was quite simple, and took really not much more time.
