Consider these holiday safety tips:

Hire a Temporary Security Guard

It’s very common for businesses to hire a security guard for the holiday season. A security guard will deter theft, monitor the premises, handle crimes, and help with crowd control. Additionally, their presence will give your customers a sense of peace knowing that someone is guarding the store.

Maintain or Create an Open-Concept Space

Shoplifters are deterred from stealing when they know they are being watched. This can be in the form of cameras or by physical human beings. Rearrange your store to allow for an open-concept space. With a lack of high walls and corners, thieves will have a diminished opportunity to steal. Additionally, have team members walking the store to help customers and watch for theft.

Train Your Employees on Holiday Safety Tips

One of the best defenses for staying safe is knowledge. Before Black Friday, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve approaches, schedule a team meeting with your employees to review what they should do in certain scenarios. When they know what to do, they won’t waste precious moments in the event of a burglary.
