Stop The Addict- Bottle Locks

Bottle security, like bottle locks, has been proven highly effective at keeping the criminal element out of liquor stores. These bottle locks provide a strong visual deterrent that any shoplifter or crook can see the second the walk into a liquor store.
Unfortunately, alcohol in all of its forms is a potentially addicting substance. As such, addicts will often go out of their way to ignore the normal deterrents and accept the risk of getting caught for their thefts.
When I watch the evening news, the majority of the theft related stories I hear come out of liquor stores. It seem like whenever there is surveillance available, the footage seems to find their way onto the news. 
Local law enforcement often uses these videos to help find a suspect. Courts will also utilize video surveillance to help them prosecute a case. 
Whether the suspect is robbing the store or shoplifting from it, a solid prosecution can sometimes be more easily made when there is video surveillance available to corroborate the plaintiff’s case.
Even better than video footage, is high quality video footage. The less grainy and more detailed the picture, the better chance law enforcement has of finding a suspect and then successfully prosecuting them in a court of law.
Using Alpha Security bottle locks will help deter the normal shoplifter, but think about adding video surveillance as a part of your bottle security to help catch the addict shoplifter.

Only One- Bottle Locks

Quite frequently when we talk about bottle security and bottle locks, we spend our time marveling over how many individualized products are out there. Don’t get me wrong, I firmly believe in having product specific solutions. Some times you just need to have the exact right tool to get the job done quickly and efficiently.
Other times (and I am thinking about the workshop in the garage right now) there can just be too many tools. Managing and sorting and cleaning and organizing all of the different tools turns into a headache. It ends up being a distraction from spending the time actually putting the tools to good use.
I often look at the chaos in the workshop and start to evaluate how many of those tools we have only used once or twice. Now they just sit around collecting dust. We sure were glad that we had them, when we actually needed them, but again, is it worth it now?
Bottle security is very similar. If you can use a wide array of bottle locks in your store, and they are put to good use then by all means diversify! Get your money’s worth out of them. If you don’t, consider investing in only one product that will fit your need for bottle locks, but will eliminate the chaos of managing multiple kinds. Invest in the Alpha Security Alpha Omni Guarde Bottle Cap.

Take Advantage Of Your Time- Alpha Security

In Tennessee there is current legislation that will allow for big box and grocery stores to sell wine to their customers. Along with several other points, the biggest win for the existing liquor stores is that there is a wait time before big boxes within a close physical proximity to the liquor store can begin to sell. That gives the little guy time to take advantage of the situation and reevaluate their business plan and bottle security.
One of the biggest comments that I have heard about continuing to buy wine from the smaller liquor store (instead of in a grocery store) is the attention they can get. Small boxes have an opportunity to win their customers over with their knowledge and their selection. They can focus on specific bottles that might not be carried by a big box.
All of that, of course, is contingent on having the bottle security in place to make sure when a customer comes in for a specific bottle, you have it in stock. If you are not using Alpha Security EASy Bottle or a comparable bottle lock, you may not have what the customer is looking for. If they are making separate trips to buy an item and then the item is unavailable, the customer is less likely to return. They will take their business to the big box with less employee knowledge, but better consistent available inventory.

Stop A Robbery- Bottle Locks

Increasing your store’s overall bottle security can be key to protecting your employees from and during a robbery. Some of the best solutions are to use bottle locks like the Alpha Security EASy Bottle, security cameras and alarm systems. 
Bottle locks can actually help to decrease the likelihood of a robbery even taking place. When potential robbers see that there are bottle locks, in addition to other kinds of bottle security, they know there is a heightened level of awareness and security features in place. 
Compared to a liquor store that does not display any obvious signs of security like bottle locks, the robber will be less likely to rob your liquor store, and more likely to rob the other one.
Additionally, adding a silent alarm behind a counter can be extremely beneficial during an actual robbery attempt. The silent alarm button will alert local police to the store without being obvious to the robber. 
Knowing that there is a silent alarm can help employees feel safer before a robbery attempt. They can feel like they are being protected proactively.
Employees feel safer and more secure during a robbery attempt because they know help is on the way. 
Even if the robbers leave before the police get there, the employees feel less alone in during a highly stressful, and potentially traumatizing, event.

Let The Lock Do The Work- Bottle Locks

Liquor bottle security is about adapting and adjusting to today’s business climate, not wallowing in how things used to be. Advancements in technology allow liquor bottle security to do some of the work for us. 
Instead of confronting people we suspect of shoplifting, we can use theft prevention, like the Alpha Security EASy Bottle to deter them from the start. If the EASy Bottle is not removed, an alarm will sound as the person exits with a bottle. That gives us a reason to approach, not accuse, but to approach them and ask them to pay for the product. These bottle locks help us avoid costly and embarrassing litigation from customers who have been wrongfully accused.
If we accuse someone of stealing, not only do we need to be right, but also we have to be able to prove that they stole from us. Otherwise we can be found liable in a court of law, and who wants to have to pay a shoplifter who was stealing from us? Unfortunately, even if we stop someone who actually was stealing, but we cannot prove it, we can still be sued.
Having bottle locks removed at the point of purchase helps identify potential losses. If someone is exiting your store with bottle locks still attached to the product, it is easier to offer customer assistance to remove the lock, and then validate the purchase.

Vendor Requirements- Bottle Security

Many of the big name brand liquor companies have specific requirements for how and where their product is placed within your store. They send their vendor representatives out to ensure that stores have the appropriate signage, inventory levels and displays. These particular vendors are primarily interested in increasing their sales, but what if it is negatively impacting your store in other ways?
One example is the big display stands and signage that some vendors are requiring. It might be to big, or placed in such a way that you now have a blind spot in the back of your store that shoplifters are taking advantage of. Maybe because one vendor wants their items placed up front, it caused you to push other products to these back corners and you are having an issue with their losses?
Don’t feel like you are trapped into these negative impact situations solely on these vendor requirements, just so you can continue to sell their brands. 
Evaluate your store layout and see what you can do to remerchandise the problem areas. Work with your vendors and explain specifically why you have a problem, and then outline what you would like to do as an alternative. They might come up with a different suggestion, but any reputable vendor should work with you to solve the problem.
If you are getting resistance from a particular vendor, have a conversation with their supervisor. The vendor rep might have their hands tied on what they feel like they can do. A supervisor may be more understanding to your issue, and should give additional guidance to solve the problem.

Playing With the Mark- Up- Bottle Locks

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.

The Key To Success- EASy Bottle

Alpha Security works tirelessly to develop bottle security that can be removed quickly at the point of sale. There are no complicated pieces to take off and separate into different bins to be reused later. Their bottle locks are one piece that is removed with a detacher key.
The detacher key can be either an attached key at the check out counter, or can be a handheld key assigned to each employee who needs one. This helps you control exactly who has access to removing their EASy Bottle locks and who doesn’t. 
It also helps you determine what variety of bottle locks you would like to use in your store. 
Most of the EASy Bottle and other Alpha Security locks are universal to the detacher keys available. This allows you even more freedom to have multiple kinds of locks specialized for your different liquor bottle inventory. Without the need for multiple kinds of detacher keys to slow your and your customers down at checkout time, you now have a more comprehensive investment in bottle security.
This is one that employee will use because they can see the values in it, not the amount of customer complaints they get because the checkout lines are getting to long. The key to success is the effective and quick combination of bottle locks and detacher keys. One key for all locks speeds up the process tremendously.

A Mixed Bag- Bottle Security

Any store that allows customers to mix their own packs of beer or wine understands that it is an invaluable selling point. 
Customers can try a variety of tastes and brands that they might not other wise purchase. It also allows customers to try out multiple varieties without making a large commitment to something they might not like. 
Let’s face it; we have all had that five- pack of beer sitting around for months because we didn’t like the first one out of the pack.
For one price, a customer can pick their own six-pack or case of beers, as long as they are from a certain cooler, or designated area of the store. The same rules apply in which the bottles of wine are from specific vendors, or comparable price points.
The problem can arise if a customer starts to take bottles from other areas, or out of pre packed cases. When those cases or packs are tampered with, the store cannot sell the case as full. They might not be able to sell it as a case at all. They are then left with a shortage on that particular item, and might have to take a margin loss by selling the bottles cheaper in a mix pack.
Making a better designation between products can help employees readily identify a misplaced bottle, before the mixed pack is sold. Using anti theft devices on items not to be included in a mixed case is another good way to indicate that the customer has a more expensive bottle in the mix.
