Why you need retail security in 2014

First of all, happy New Year from everyone at Alpha 1 security services, we hope you have a happy and prosperous year. If you are thinking of opening a shop in 2014 then you may need to think about retail security personal for your premise. If you are seriously thinking of security then you will be looking into retail security to maintain surveillance and peace in your shop.

If you are wondering what good security will really do for you, have a think that in the whole of 2013, shoplifting, employee and supplier fraud cost UK high street retailers more than £3.4bn, a staggering amount. Shoplifting is generally considered the most prominent problem to UK shops as it accounts for near enough 36% of the total losses, which equates to roughly £1.224bn. If you think that you can avoid shoplifters have a think about what a shoplifter actually looks like. They could male or female and could be a young boy or an old woman, you really just do not know and can you assure that you are watching your store 100% of the time while attending to your customers, probably not. There is no point trying to save money on not employing a retail security team when you may be losing a percentage of your sales to shoplifters. That money could be saved and more by the work our retail security operatives will do for you.

You don’t have to own a high end luxury boutique to require security. You could be an independent supplier of computers but have seen stock go missing in the past. With our security team you can be assured that we will work with yourself and your staff to ensure we keep a tight security presence in your store to reduce the chances of a shoplifter stealing goods from your store. Our retail security team at Alpha 1 will be able to assess your requirements and are able to work on short and long term contracts to suit your needs, therefore if you require security presence during the busy shopping periods, for example Christmas, then we could plan how our retail security operatives would be able to provide a security presence during this time. For peace of mind in your premise, contact Alpha 1 and let us provide you with security and peace of mind in 2014.
