Dollar General, an American chain of variety stores, has announced implementation of Electronic Article Surveillance (EAS) pedestals and deactivation systems by Checkpoint Systems, a global supplier of EAS and RFID solutions for retail industry encompassing loss prevention and merchandise visibility, at approximately 2,800 Dollar General retail locations.

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.

Carl Rysdon, vice president of inventory control solutions for Checkpoint said, “The Dollar General implementation represents the fastest deployment of EAS that I have ever witnessed. It is rewarding to collaborate with Dollar General on this project and to help the company achieve improvements in sales and shrink by using our best-in-class systems to provide maximum protection on high-risk items. We are thrilled to partner with Dollar General, which is one of the fastest-growing and most successful retailers in North America.”

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.” (GK)
