Retail Shrinkage – Costing British Business Billions A Year

Retail shrinkage is loss of inventory that occurs as a result of shoplifting, employee theft, admin error, vendor fraud, and damage in transit.Whilst shrinkage cannot be fully avoided, it is possible to take steps to reduce and mitigate the impact it has on your business.

Retail businesses in the United Kingdom have the worst case of retail shrinkable in Europe, with over 1000 daily incidents of shoplifting, causing UK businesses to lose almost 11 billion pounds annually, to put that into some context, that's more than the GDP of the Caribbean country Dominica (which was 562.5 million USD in 2017).

Protect Your Business From Shoplifters; What Can Be Done?

β€œIn England and Wales there were over 374 thousand shoplifting offences recorded by the police in 2018/19." [source Statista] As such, it's understandable that businesses are looking for ways that they can minimise the amount of product stolen by shoplifters from their stores.

One solution is to use visible security systems in order to deter shoplifters from stealing your product. Sometimes all that is required is to inform the shoplifters that your business is not an easy target. This can bed one through numerous different security systems, visible pedestals at the store entrance, visible CCTV cameras, or even just a simple solution such as signage. After all, an easily visible sign warning shoplifters that they will be prosecuted can be a very effective theft prevention tool.

It's also important to recognise the deterrent power of measured markers. These markers are used near exits so that CCTV recordings and security staff can provide a more accurate estimate of the shoplifter's height. Not only will security features like this help describe an offender when seeking prosecution, but the presence of these measured markers will provide a deterrent. It's not unreasonable to suggest that a would-be-shoplifter could see these markers, and decide against stealing from your store due to the security precautions.

How Can You Protect Your Products Against Detaggers

Whilst security tags and pedestals are powerful shoplifting prevention tools, they are not the perfect weapon; especially if you're relying on an older or outdated security system. For example, for older EAS tagging systems,it's possible to purchase detaggers online, which enable shoplifters to remove tags before leaving the store. This presents a major issue for loss prevention.

However, we have a solution to this problem. Included in our range of security tagging for retail businesses are the scorpion tagging systems.These tags come in three different types and provide robust protection against prepared shoplifters using detagging devices. If the scorpion tag is separated from the pin, the device will immediately sound an alarm, allowing employees and security staff to respond in an appropriate manner.
