Help Prevent Shoplifting: Install Custom Retail Cabinets
If you install locked retail cabinets, it can help to prevent shoplifting. As a cabinet maker, we think it’s good to know that there are several myths about shoplifting. For example, shoplifting only happens in poverty stricken to middle class areas. Wrong. For example, read this article excerpt from Wikipedia, regarding Winona Ryder:
“On December 12, 2001, Ryder was arrested on shoplifting charges in Beverly Hills, California. She was accused of stealing $5,500 worth of designer clothes and accessories at a Saks Fifth Avenue department store. Ryder agreed under signature to pay two civil demands, as permitted under California’s Statute for Civil Recovery for Shoplifting, from Saks Fifth Avenue that completely reimbursed Saks Fifth Avenue for the stolen and surrendered merchandise while detained in the security offices of the Saks Fifth Avenue store” [READ SOURCE]
Did you get that? Say what you will about Beverly Hills and Saks Fifth Avenue but the words “poverty stricken” and “middle class” don’t really apply. And they’re not alone. What do stores like Prada and Kate Spade have in common other than the fact that they make very pricey handbags? They’ve been victims of shoplifting rings. Ok, you say. I run a shoe shop. I sell nice shoes but not super expensive ones. I’m not a prime target for a shoplifter, and it’s doubtful my shoes could be sold on the black market. Wrong again.
