Small retail shops are unusually vulnerable to security breaches and shrinkage. Retail businesses are always a target for theft, but independent retailers may not have as much capital to invest in security. The good news? You don’t need to spend a fortune to secure your business. Here are five quick steps you can take to beef up your security today.
"We do employee training around security," says Raj Patel, owner of Sarah’s Market in Cambridge, MA. "I tell them if they see someone just wandering up and down aisles to go up and ask them if they need help and to watch out for groups — they’ll often work as a team, where one will come up and ask some silly questions while the others take stuff." Make sure your employees understand security protocols and how to enforce them when a crime occurs.
Small business security gets easier once you establish some best practices. By taking these steps, you can start diminishing your risk of theft.
