Protect Your Inventory With a Secure Display

It’s a sad fact of life: retailers lose millions of dollars each year due to shoplifting.

The National Association for Shoplifting Prevention has compiled a list of disturbing statistics:

  • An estimated 1 in 11 people shoplift.
  • Shoplifters are only caught once for every 48 times they steal.
  • On average, habitual shoplifters steal 1.6 times a week.
  • Shoplifters are turned over to the police only half of the time.
  • Ten million people have been caught shoplifting in the last five years.

This can have a huge impact on your display — particularly if you’re showcasing expensive items that can be tucked away or hidden under garments by clever thieves. Each year, shoplifting costs American retailers $10 billion.

Whether your display is featuring the latest set of high-end screwdrivers or the newest generation iPad, security is a vital part of a quality display.


How we help our clients ensure a secure display

Don’t let the size of your product lure you into a false sense of security. Shoplifters are most likely to steal when the opportunity presents itself — therefore, don’t give them the opportunity. Shoplifters have been known to try to snatch objects from as small as a cell phone to as bulky as a cordless drill.

What makes a secure display? We’ve utilized a variety of strategies to help our clients protect their inventory and gain new customers. Some of these strategies include:

  • Locking hooks for small rack items
  • Alarms
  • Secure stands for items such as cell phones and tablets
  • Tethers
  • Locked cases
