Dollar rises with surveillance

Dollar rises with surveillance
Tuesday March 14 2017

US general store Dollar General is implementing Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) pedestals and deactivation systems at its stores

Around 2,800 outlets throughout the US will soon be using the solutions from Checkpoint Systems to reduce retail shrinkage. 

Before the rollout, Dollar General tested Checkpoint EAS pedestals and deactivation systems in a limited number of stores to determine the benefits of further deterring shoplifting and protecting high-theft inventory with visible EAS tagging. With positive results, the rollout proceeded with Checkpoint’s on-time delivery of the project.

Ken Peschier, senior director of store operations, at Dollar General said: “We selected Checkpoint because it offered an exceptional solution, service and support. It was important to deploy Checkpoint’s EAS solutions in these additional 2,800 stores quickly in order to capture the opportunity to increase sales and reduce losses caused by shoplifting that we experienced in our test stores.”
