Don’t Taste That! – Alpha Security

Many local wineries rely on a customer’s ability to taste their wines as part of the selling process. If a customer can taste the product, there is a better chance that they will buy a bottle. In New York there has been a change to allow farm stands to sell wine as long as it is from a local winery. There is a provision that does not allow for tastings though. With these restrictions, there is a higher likely hood that without bottle locks customers will try and sneak a taste before they purchase.
Even though bottle locks do a very good job at protecting inventory from shoplifters, it is not their only function. They can be used for their product denial benefits. Because the design of the bottle lock creates an impassable barrier to the interior contents of the wine, they are a perfect solution for wineries and farm stands. 
This particular bottle security need does not need to be linked up to an alarm system to work. Preventing against unauthorized tastings only needs the product denial from the bottle locks, not the alarming mechanism that deters shoplifters. That is the biggest reason why Alpha Security bottle security products works very well in a farm stand setting. It is an easier way to protect the wine bottles from unauthorized access without having to unnecessarily spending money to have an entire EAS or RF alarm system installed.

The New Kid In Town- Bottle Security

Entering into uncharted territory doesn’t have to mean going into a situation with your eyes closed. As new entrants into the wine selling business, big box stores like mass retail discounters and grocery stores need to be aware as they get into selling wine that there is a potential for theft. If they can manage their resources upfront, they will have a better chance of shutting down potential shoplifters before they even get started honing in on their stores. Bottle Security is an effective way to discourage theft.
Without adequate security, these stores can end up with significant losses. The down side to their entering into uncharted territory is that they have no idea how far the scope of their losses will be. Ultimately they need to figure out what kind of negative financial impact they are up against.
 
Bottle locks like the EASy Bottle (sold by Alpha Security) are commonly thought of only as protection for liquor bottles. They are, however, also designed to work with wine bottles to provide additional security.
As bottle locks on the wine bottles are implemented for bottle security, the potential for a negative financial impact happens. Shoplifters will no longer have unlimited access to these bottles of wine. If the shoplifters can’t easily steal the bottles, the losses from theft decrease dramatically.

Protect the Rest- EASy Bottle

If you are dismissing the small dollar thefts in your store, you are opening the doors wide open for much larger theft to occur. This is more frequently the case as smaller box and convenience stores increase/ add alcohol to their product lines. If you do not invest in security for your normal range of merchandise, you might want to consider adding Alpha Security bottle locks.
Liquor bottle security is a proven worthwhile investment. Using EASy Bottle is one of the better options to help increase your liquor bottle security. Since they come in a wide variety of options, you can pick the product that will work best for your situation and your merchandise. 
The theft of a single bottle of liquor can quickly outpace the rest of the theft that is currently occurring. Because of the comparatively higher dollar amount of the product, even the loss of one bottle will have a bigger impact on your financial line than the loss of several smaller items. 
Conversely, being able to save those same items from theft can make a bigger impact, in a positive way, to you financial line. The added benefit is that as you incorporate a visual deterrent against shoplifting, you might see a decrease in the other inventory losses you have. Shoplifters will assume that if one type of product is protected, then other items will be protected too.

Feeling Short Changed? – Liquor Bottle Security

EASy Bottle (Alpha Security bottle locks) is an effective deterrent against product sampling and shoplifting. If those are the only two ways your store is incurring inventory losses, you are probably covered by your liquor bottle security.
If you are having other unexplained shortages and you are sure that your liquor bottle security has the front of the house covered, then maybe you should start to investigate losses from the receiving end of things.
While shoplifters are always the first thought when it comes to how inventory shrink occurs, it is by far not the only way. In fact, it is easier and more common that vendors and employees will cause the biggest financial losses your liquor store will incur.
One of the easiest ways a vendor can steal from you is by overstating the quantities of product they are delivering. This can happen by taking a real invoice, and shorting the actual shipment that is delivered to your store. 
If they leave a few cases of product on their deliver truck (and none of your employees verifies the physical received quantity) the vendor now has extra product on their truck. You will be left with an unexplained inventory shortage and they have cases of merchandise they can do with as they please. 
Since they used a real invoice, their employer’s will be none the wiser since they did not leave the warehouse with extra product. It is up to you and your employees to physically verify the shipment’s invoice to the actual product delivered to your store.

Where Do You Find Your Wiggle Room? – Bottle Security

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 retail store might only mark up a bottle 25 percent to 50 percent. Needless to say, retailers do not have as much wiggle room with their wine profits as a restaurant or bar might. It is critical for retailers to incorporate bottle security in order to maintain their profits.
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 security can help mitigate those potential losses.
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 wine tasting. What does help stop these tastings, as well as shoplifters, is bottle security in the form of Bottle Locks. Alpha Security EASy Bottle protects the wine inventory without seriously compromising the wine’s slim margin percent. This makes it a much more affordable solution.

Commercially Driven- Liquor Bottle Security

Why do people steal bottles of alcohol? Why would someone try and defeat your liquor bottle security and risk getting caught just for a few bottles? The answer lies within the end result of the theft.
For some, it is an economic answer to an addiction. These are people who have substance abuse issues and steal to feed that addiction.
For others, the answer is that the theft is commercially driven. 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.
If you have low liquor bottle security, you might be even more prone to commercially driven theft. That is theft that has a profit at the end. 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.
To avoid this, Alpha Security makes a variety of bottle locks that can act as a strong deterrent against these commercially driven thefts. EASy Bottle 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.

A Premium Solution – Alpha Security

When you use the Alpha Security Bottle Locks, you have a premium product to protect your premium liquors and wines. What makes this EASy Bottle lock superior to any other lock?

Ultimately, it is about getting the biggest bang for your buck. There is no lengthy training involved which means your return on investment isn’t diluted from spending countless payroll hours teaching your employees how the bottle locks are to be used.

Your payroll is also saved by not needing to have an employee retrieve every single bottle of premium liquor because it is locked up in a case somewhere.

Using the Alpha Security Crystal Guarde has visual benefits as well. The clear top allows the tax ID stamp to be visible at all times.  This saves your employees time if they need to show the stamp to auditors, and potentially face fines for non-compliance.

The bottle locks also have the word “alarm” clearly written on them so shoplifters have a better clue that the bottles are being protected from theft and sampling.

The smaller design makes it easier to maximize shelf displays and product placement. The clear top is also less visually distracting. You see more of the product than you do the bottle locks when you scan across the store.

While this is not an all-inclusive list of the features that are included in the Alpha Security locks, it is a great way to learn that this really is a premium product.

Visit the Loss Prevention Store to purchase EASy Bottle bottle locks by Alpha Security and your Electronic Article Surveillance or EAS system.

What Are My Options – Bottle Security

After making the decision to use a bottle lock as your primary source of bottle security it is time to narrow down which product will be best suited to your needs. There are a few styles of Alpha Security Bottle Locks to choose from. Each one has its own advantages based on its application within you store.

The metal bottle wrap is probably the most basic of bottle locks. It is just a simple metal band that wraps around the neck of a bottle. While it does not provide product denial, it does provide a visual deterrent against shoplifting. The biggest advantage is that the wrap will not damage any outside coverings. This is important for champagne bottles that have the metal/ foil covering over the cork.

Next is the bottle cap style of bottle locks. Tough, durable and reliable, this lock is attached directly on the top of the bottle. It provides product denial, as a shoplifter or underage drinker cannot remove the cap of the bottle to sample the contents inside.

Lastly is the EASy Bottle Crystal Guarde. Where the bottle cap is more utilitarian in design, this bottle lock has a smaller profile and a sleeker look. It is perfect for a more high-end display. The smaller design also makes it easier to maximize shelf quantities while providing the same bottle security to detract shoplifters and unauthorized sampling.

The basics of bottle security are there to ensure you get the most benefit from security products such as the EASy Bottle by Alpha Security.

Some of the other benefits of using a bottle lock for bottle security are that for a simple application of bottle security, you gain maximum protection through product denial. They also cover a wide range of bottle types making them a versatile application to fit all of your needs. Even the most unique sizes and shapes of bottles can be covered using bottle locks.

From a financial perspective, there is a good return on the initial investment. Since the bottle locks are made from an extremely durable polycarbonate material, they can be used over and over again.
