The run up to Christmas is undoubtedly the busiest time of year for any retailer – studies suggest that consumer spending quadruples during December alone, and with holiday promotions beginning earlier every year, it seems like the winter months are a dream come true for the majority of retailers.
Of course, it goes without saying that such a huge increase in shop floor activity brings its fair share of problems. Retailers are statistically more likely to encounter shoplifters at Christmas than at any other time of year, and with good reason too – thieves love to hide in plain sight, and with store aisles packed full of busy shoppers, Christmas time presents itself as an incredibly easy opportunity for anyone intent on taking goods without paying for them.
It goes without saying that security is important all year round in order to protect your customers, staff and stock. However, with busy shop floors in the run up to Christmas an extra presence can prove incredibly effective when it comes to preventing theft.
Ultimately, any business owner looking to protect their assets during the busiest period of the year should consider hiring retail security. Given the propensity of shoplifters during the weeks leading up to Christmas, a professional security team is often likely to pay for itself when it comes to recovering goods and generally putting off shoplifters.
It’s often the case that prevention is better than cure, and store detectives usually serve to outright deter shoplifters. An obvious security presence can be enough to keep even the hardiest shoplifters from attempting to steal items – and in the event of a theft going ahead, Phase One retail security are on hand to deal with things in a professional manner.
