When you are looking to add a new, high caliber product group, the last thing you want is to end up loosing money instead of making money. Since wine is not one of the highest mark up items in a store, any inventory shrink losses can quickly devastate the small amount of built in profit. Bottle locks can help mitigate those potential losses.
When a restaurant sells a bottle of wine, there can be anywhere from a 150 percent to 300 percent mark up on the bottles. By comparison, a retailer might only mark up a bottle 25 percent to 50 percent. Because of this difference in mark up, most retailers can have a difficult time absorbing inventory losses from stolen bottles of wine.
However, just because the retailer doesn’t have a big mark up on their product doesn’t mean that it is any less desirable to a shoplifter. It also doesn’t prevent someone from coming into a store and doing their own “in house sampling”.
What does help stop shoplifters and also stop people from doing their own wine tasting is Alpha Security Bottle Locks. These bottle locks provide bottle security without seriously compromising the wine’s often slim margin percent. This makes it a much more affordable alternative, at least when you compare it to inventory shrink losses.
