This article presents information on checkpoint systems in retail stores. Gordman's Departmental Stores rolled the system out to its 24-store network. Inventory shrinkage immediately started to decline as internal theft was sharply curtailed. Since then, the chain has grown to 45 locations in 10 states, and Checkpoint's electronic article surveillance (EAS) serves all hut one of them. Beyond typical EAS and retail security such as those at Gordman's Stores, protection and inventory controls are transforming thanks to the improvements in technology and the concept of source tagging.
