This package includes (1) 11"x14" Shoplifting warning sign and (3) 5"X6.5" Shoplifting warning decals which are perfect for indoor or outdoor use. The security signs are made from weatherproof plastic and decals or premium grade vinyl. The sign has rounded corners and four holes pre-drilled for easy mounting.
Visual cues can be an incredible effective and cost-effective means of warding off potential shoplifters. Not only do signs stay put 24/7 while shoppers and staff move in and out of your sight, anti-theft signs will dissuade potential shoplifters much like a security system sign at home will dissuade a burglar.
Place a shoplifting sign at or near your front door as it's often the first-place shoppers look.
Instead of wasting precious shelf or floor space with your signs, place them up high where shoplifters will most likely check for surveillance cameras.
Shoplifting is a serious problem for small business owners as well as large retail operations. This is particularly true for companies that cannot afford to have a loss prevention staff on hand to deal with shoplifters. It is necessary to train employees on what to look for and the things that they can do to help stop a shoplifter in a store. While it may not be possible to stop all shoplifters, employing these techniques can reduce the amount of stolen goods in a store.
Be aware of suspicious behavior. While you don't want to profile your customers, or make them feel uncomfortable, it is important to watch for specific instances of suspicious behavior. If a large group enters and immediately separates, this is typically a cue that at least one of them plans to steal something. The idea is that it is impossible for employees to watch all of them at once. Other indicators are people pushing empty strollers, carrying overly large and empty bags, or simply those who seem nervous and are constantly looking about to see if they are being watched.
Install safety mirrors around the store. These mirrors help employees standing at the front of a store to see what is going on at the back and in aisles. These mirrors are less expensive than a security camera system and can be useful when only one or two employees are working and cannot monitor the entire store.
Place a "we prosecute shoplifters" sticker on the entrance to your business. This lets people know that you are serious about loss prevention and while it won't stop every shoplifter from trying to steal, it can help reduce those who are not hardened thieves.
Greet every customer personally when they walk in. This has the added benefit of improving your store's customer service. It also lets potential thieves know that you have seen them and will recognize them. Many thieves prefer to slip into a store unnoticed.
