For many clothing retailers, the fitting room is one of the biggest challenges in the battle against shoplifting. One of the best ways you can enhance your retail security is by adding a fitting room security solution to your arsenal.
Fitting Room Theft
A fitting room is a necessary part of any clothing retail store because it gives your customers a private space to try on clothing and decide if they want to purchase it. But the issue that comes with offering customers this privacy is that shoplifters will inevitably take advantage of it.
The best way to protect your fitting rooms is to install security solutions specifically designed for them. These solutions can detect the presence of booster bags, which is a type of bag lined with multiple layers of aluminum foil that provide electromagnetic shielding to prevent clothing security tags from being detected by the antennae of retail security systems.
Some other ways to deter theft include:
- Fitting room attendants who count garments in and out
- Visible security cameras and public-view monitors outside a fitting room entrance
- Fitting rooms located in high-traffic areas
- Chimes to alert store associates when a customer enters and exits a fitting room area
