If you have low bottle security, your store might be more prone to commercially driven theft. That is theft that has a profit at the end. As you know, alcohol is expensive. Bottles can fetch a high price just in a liquor store, and an even bigger price when sold at a bar or nightclub setting. Imagine the profit margin when you have zero overhead because you are selling stolen goods.
Stolen merchandise is sold in a variety of venues. Prestigious bottles can be sold online. Some businesses operate by reselling stolen goods, funneling this dirty money elsewhere. Bottles can even be sold from person to person.
In all situations, the merchandise was stolen from shops with limited bottle security.
To avoid this, bottle locks can act as a strong deterrent against these commercially driven thefts. EASy Bottle (by Alpha Security) locks not only deter the theft initially, but they also reduce the likelihood of a resale. It is much harder to sell an item on the street if the buyer cannot open the bottle.
It is also harder to fetch a good price on items that are blatantly stolen. The art of resale often exists when there is a plausible explanation as to why someone would want to sell an item at less than retail value, or in such high case quantities.
A resale bottle with the bottle locks still on is a good indicator that the merchandise is not legitimate.
