What is retail security?
Not all businesses are created the same.
Some companies operate exclusively online, providing valuable knowledge or advice to people all over the world. Others might be in the development industry. Many of the businesses we know and love, though, are considered to be in ‘retail’ – the sale of products to the general public.
Retail plays an important part in everybody’s life; whether you’re a consumer, a business owner or otherwise, you’ll likely have regular dealings with some form of retail outlet. The thing is that retailers are frequently targeted by criminals. It makes sense; after all, most stores will contain large quantities of valuable items, or even a till full of cash!
In densely populated areas such as Bristol, where crime rates are higher than other locations around the UK, this might be even more of an issue. That’s why it’s so important for Bristol based business owners to really protect their stores and shops.
The good news is that retail security has never been easier. Let’s take a look into how YOU can make the most of a tailored retail security plan to reduce stock loss and improve your business:
Retail Security is a general term that’s used to describe all aspects involving the secure protection of your shop; it might refer to a CCTV network, an intuitive alarm system or even an in-store SIA Bristol security guard.
By utilising a strong security plan, you’ll effectively be deterring criminals from stealing. Even if someone was to try and take your stock, with good security management, you’ll have a much higher chance of having the stock (or your money) returned.
The benefits to having a SIA security guards in the shop are endless. Along with a significant reduction to stock loss and a decrease in your insurance premiums, a security guard can help to put your customers’ minds at ease.
Many shoppers are extremely safety-concerned, so the knowledge that a security guard is on the premises can be a way to reassure them that they are safe.
Handling and monitoring crime in a city like Bristol might seem like a monumental challenge, so why not employ retail security to do the hard work for you?
We know that every business has very different needs; some retailers are likely to have more intense security needs than others.
A tiny shop in a larger complex probably won’t require a permanent security guard, whereas a large department store would. That’s why all of our security plans are tailored specifically to YOUR business needs.
It doesn’t matter what kind of business you run, how long you’ve been operating for or what your long-term goals are; we’re here to help you make the most of a great security plan.
