It ain't worth it but they can't stop...

A large portion of shoplifters are caught stealing items that will yield no financial reward. Many items are stolen and then simply discarded. The reason for this is that many shoplifters do it for the thrill or compulsion. Winona Ryder is just one famous name that comes to mind. Candy is one of the most shoplifted product categories yet it is affordable to everyone. People will steal things that they would not buy just because those items are easily stolen.

Retail security tag systems put up a psychological barrier to shoplifters. The simple act of security tagging a piece of merchandise and placing a visible security system at the egress of a store will stop most of your opportunity theft. The higher the chance that a potential shoplifter feels they will be caught, the less likely it is they will steal.
