The holidays are here, and as a store proprietor or manager, you should prioritize the safety and protection of your staff, customers, and property. Black Friday through Cyber Monday provide retailers across the nation with unique security problems due to the massive influx of consumers.
Although online shopping dominates today’s market, brick-and-mortar storefronts are still popular with both the older demographics, and more surprisingly with the youngest generation. Many enjoy the tangibility of in-store shopping and the hunt for clearance items. However, the increased numbers of shoppers can pose significant safety risks.
Not to mention the continued and steady influx of shoppers all the way through to Christmas. During this end of the year phase, AGS services aim to address the following issues:
- Theft of merchandise or property by shoplifters and even employees
- Vandalism and property destruction
- Parking Lots safety (on which we have developed a unique training course!)
- Use of stolen credit cards or counterfeit bills
- Disorderly crowds and the injury or damage they can cause
- Aggression amongst customers or patrons, due to higher stress or inebriation
- Employee-on-customer violence
