In my stores, Muzak plays constantly. The security guard is a very expensive beast with a bad cap and halitosis. In a recent trial, a supervisor was paid to interrupt the Muzak at 5 minute intervals with the phrase
"Put it BACK!" - you would be surprised how many pockets were emptied! Obviously, tape
recordings could be used for a variety of stores, including "Stop looking at my breasts" and the ever popular "STOP picking your nose."
||Sounds like a nice variation on the scarecrook [a cardboard cutout of a cop or security officer].
||If shelves were counter-balanced so that the total weight of items in the section was tracked, you could customize the announcement.
Shopper picks up a magazine. Voice says, "Not for everyone"
Shopper puts it back: V, "You're not serious"
Shopper picks another: V, "Readers make better parents"
Would this decrease 'sticky fingers' or 'dirty hands'? I doubt it, but it might increase 'stickiness' in certain store sections.
||That's a good idea if only to interrupt the Muzak for a few precious seconds....
||Two important things to remember when you are a security guard,
never fall asleep where you can be seen,
always write your name on your lunch.
