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.
