If your store is prone to large-scale thefts, such as ones from push outs, grab and runs, or booster bags, it might be partly due to the ease that they can pick up large quantities of merchandise. When retailers merchandise arms of clothing the hangers typically face in one direction. That means a shoplifter can grab an entire sales arms full of product in mere seconds. Did you know that alternating the direction of your hangers is a clothing security technique designed to prevent this specific issue?
Try to start with the hangers holding the smallest size facing right, the mediums facing left, larges facing back towards the right, etc.
This provides a visual pattern to the hangers and eliminates a haphazard look and feel to your store. By setting a standard for the direction the hangers need to face, you can keep your merchandising racks looking neat and organized.
When you alternate the direction of the hangers the shoplifters have to stop and put in some extra effort to get all of the items, instead of just a few at a time. This method keeps your sales floor stocked at levels that allow customers to quickly find what they are looking for- in the sizes they need- while reducing your risk of a large scale theft. It is a more practical and customer friendly clothing security move compared to reducing sales floor stock levels or hiding merchandise behind a locked case.
