US: New footwear anti-theft label launched
A new security label for shoe source tagging and improved on-shelf availability that can be integrated during the manufacturing process has been launched by Checkpoint Systems.
The 2815 Enhanced Performance (EP) shoe label has been designed in conjunction with shoe manufacturers and retailers, can be easily applied and is able to withstand high melding temperatures without compromising its performance.
Shoes are a high-risk theft item, which are difficult to protect and display at the same time. According to the most recent Global Retail Theft Barometer, shrink rates for footwear have increased year-over-year to 0.99% globally and 1.2% in North America.
Checkpoint Systems says it has source-tagged more than one billion shoes with Radio Frequency (RF) Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) labels in the last five years to help retailers in the fight against shrink.
