Checkpoint pedestals are a familiar sight at most big box stores, a set or two at every entrance/exit. The thing is, small businesses and specialty boutiques can benefit from Checkpoint Systems as much or more than a giant retailer. When your store does not have the discount buying power those guys have, every penny you spend on inventory counts. Everything you offer for sale to your customers needs to be accounted for and kept secure. When your assets walk out the door unpaid for, you lose more profit than the big box because your profit margin is likely lower.
For example, if you own a store that specializes in formal wear, you have a lot of high retail inventory hanging on your racks. Checkpoint has a variety of tags you can use to protect all the different garments and accessories you offer. There are the obvious hard tags that are pinned right onto the clothing. These come in several sizes, shapes and colors. They all have smooth edges, and do not damage the items in any way while attached. Plus, your customers can still try on the different articles, without impeding them in any way, or causing any discomfort. Checkpoint Tags available for accessories, such as purses and belts, are excellent as well. These can also be attached with a lanyard, depending on the size of the piece that needs to be secured. With the new security of your inventory, knowing the system will alarm if someone attempts to remove garments that still have tags attached, owners and managers can have a new peace of mind.
Stores need shoppers to feel welcome, to want to shop there, and to return and be loyal customers. Stores also need to deter shoplifting, and in order to do that, they must have a visible system of product protection in place. There are websites devoted to educating people on how to get out of stores with whatever they want, completely undetected. Most of these sites warn of the Checkpoint System, and tell the would-be thief to abort their plan if the system is in place.
This is where another choice in Checkpoint Tags comes into play They are the versatile soft tags. These things can be adhered to the price tag where they could be seen, or even sewn into a hidden pocket. The advantage is clearly in the store’s favor. The key to reducing and even stopping shrink in your business is to deter the theft in the first place.
Running a business and trying to catch shoplifters is a lot of hard work. Going to court, usually more than once for the same theft, is a complete hassle. I know; I’ve done it. I’ve gone to court four times for the same lady, just to see it get dismissed the last time. If you do succeed in getting a conviction, the offender gets a slap on the wrist more times than not. Believe me, the Checkpoint System, and all of the different gadgets that work with it to detect and deter theft, is one of the best investments you can make as a business owner.
