Solution to candle theft

Jarloc?, a brand new solution to prevent candle theft will be widely available to all retailers from this September and is set to make candle theft a thing of the past. Theft of glass jar candles is reported by many retailers as a particular problem and losses can be as high as 30% of turnover, impacting both stock availability and devouring profit margins. Thieves target leading brands such as Village & Yankee Candles, amongst others, often stealing in bulk.

Until now, retailers have gone to great lengths to deter theft, including removing the lid of the jar, reducing stock holdings and applying security tags. Jarloc? is the brainchild of Jeremy Davies, Managing Director of GCS (GB) Limited, provider of the HTA security advice line and retail security specialist. It is a standalone, reusable security device specifically designed to protect glass jar candles from theft. Jarloc? fits snugly inside the top of the jar, locks into place, preventing access to the wick. The lid fits on top and the candle can be displayed as normal.

Jeremy comments: ?The problem of protecting glass jar candles from theft has been very difficult to solve. The shape of the jar does not lend itself to the existing range of security tags available in the market. Significant investment in product development and a new approach to an old problem was needed, ensuring effective protection for all retailers, not just those equipped with security tagging systems. Jarloc? provides retailers the confidence to improve product availability to the consumer through increased shelf stock holding, leading to increased sales, while managing stock loss effectively.?
