Does your store sell alcohol such as Whiskey, Vodka, and Tequila? If you do then you know the challenge of carrying these items. Bottle items such as alcoholic beverages present a unique challenge when it comes to protecting them. Unlike your other items that are traditionally secured, bottled items require shelf space that needs to be presented to the customer in an organized fashion. Securing these items have been a challenge for retailers for many years. We finally have a solution with Alpha Bottle Locks.
Having worked in loss prevention and law enforcement most of my life, I naturally always look at stores security devices or lack thereof. I am a person that feels like the more I know the better I am in my own career. Many times I see a stores security lacking and this especially holds true while walking down the liquor isle. I’m always shocked that there is no security on these items. Yes, I’ve seen the corner mirror that the one or two store clerks can look at to see in the aisle. But at the same time I see the store clerks busy with customers and unable to stare up at the mirror. The lack of security on these expensive bottles just opens the door to theft.
