It was a Friday night and business was booming. There were people coming in to party and have a good time, the alcohol was being sold, and amazing profit was being made. All seemed like a successful Friday night in the bar, except for one minor detail – this was not a bar. This was happening in a liquor store with no bottle security.
It was only after a major investigation that resulted in several employees being terminated that we uncovered what was going on. This liquor store had a few employees working a late shift on the weekends that decided they needed to make more money. One of them came up with the great idea that they would start selling individual shots to customers. Since there was no bottle security, it was easy to take a handful of bottles to sell from.
Pretty soon word was out in the community. People were stopping by the liquor store on the weekends like it was the neighborhood bar. We started noticing losses in the inventory, not because of the bottles the shots were being sold out of (those had actually been paid for by the employees). It was from the customers who were coming in to drink. They noticed that the store didn’t use Alpha Security Easy Bottle Bottle Locks for bottle security, so they started walking out the door with unpaid for goods. It was those losses that prompted the investigation.
