K&G Fashion Superstore Deploys Integrated Loss Prevention and Security Solutions

K&G Fashion Superstore, a subsidiary of The Men's Wearhouse, Inc. in the United States and an affiliate of Moore's Clothing for Men in Canada, deploys loss prevention and security solutions from ADT Security Services for all of its 107 stores across the United States and Canada. The retailer is replacing existing anti-theft systems with ADT's Sensormatic anti-theft solutions to help protect merchandise and limit losses due to shoplifting and theft.

K&G Fashion Superstore is installing Sensormatic Ultra•Max EAS anti-theft pedestals from ADT at store exits and will use the system's anti-theft tags and labels on merchandise and products throughout the stores. The retailer will benefit also from ADT's industry-leading Sensormatic source-tagging program, where anti-theft tags are applied to merchandise at the point of manufacture. More than five billion tags per year are placed on products or in their packaging by product manufacturers as part of the source-tagging program.

The move to the new system was prompted by K&G's desire to continue to better serve its customers with higher quality brands at discounted prices, according to Frank Serra, Director of Loss Prevention.

"It is important for us to provide our customers with quality merchandise, value for their dollar and a first-rate shopping experience," said Serra. "To do that, we need to use the best technology solutions available to protect our products while allowing them to be openly displayed and available for purchase at the lowest possible price."

At selected K&G stores, cameras and digital recorders will be integrated into the loss prevention and security solutions. Some stores will also include public view monitors — video screens placed in key locations that are a visual reminder to potential retail criminals they are being monitored. ADT has provided K&G with burglar and fire alarm services for a number of years and is now expanding the relationship to include additional security, as well as loss prevention services.
