Shoplifters cleaning your liquor and wine out like its spring-cleaning or something? Are you loosing so much money or sanity that you wonder if it is worth it? Can’t hire any more people because your already thin margin will take too much of a hit?
First we need to figure out what your problem is. What type of shoplifting problem do you have? What is occurring in your store? Is your merchandise just disappearing? Is it being opened on site and consumed or poured off into another container? There are three levels of bottle security you should look at fully before you make your decisions that will fix the problems.
Bottle security using Checkpoint labels. Once you have a Checkpoint system in place at the doors you can consider this solution. You or your staff places a Checkpoint label on the bottles that are experiencing theft. If that bottle is concealed and the shoplifter tries to take it out of your store the Checkpoint system will detect it and alarm. Checkpoint labels come in many sizes and shapes. They are plain, have fake barcodes, are black and come in many sizes that can be printed on directly with the printer you already use to print pricing labels.
Bottle locks are the next step. The first one to consider is Steal Grip by Alpha Security. This hard tag wraps around the neck of the bottle and locks in place with a special locking mechanism. If the shoplifter attempts to steal the bottle the Checkpoint system at the doors goes into alarm. However, once a paying customer purchases the bottle the cashier simply removes the bottle lock with a special key. Bottle locks are then reused over and over.
The next level in Bottle locks is the EASy Bottle, EASy Guard and Crystal Guard also by Alpha Security. Let me also state that Alpha Security is the undisputed leader in liquor bottle security, bar none! These products such as EASy Bottle go over the top of the liquor or wine bottle. The bottle lock is locked into place and at that point a thief cannot open the bottle or steal it. If they attempt to take it out the door the Checkpoint system will also alarm. The difference between them is that EASy Bottle is the first generation. It is solid black. Crystal Guard comes in four sizes and has a clear acrylic top. You can see the cap and tax stamp. EASy Guard is the latest and greatest. It also has a clear top but its locking mechanism is even better for applying and removing. Both Crystal Guard and EASy Guard us her new S3 Detacher key from Alpha Security. This is great stuff!
