  Thieves more likely to strike during busy holiday shopping season!

You better watch out! You better not cry! You better not pout I’m telling you why! Retailers are hit with theft at its highest levels during the busy holiday season.
 
As retail stores begin to populate with shoppers trying to cross things off their list, thieves also try to take advantage of the busy stores hoping to swipe a few items when no one is paying attention to them. Thieves usually target retail stores without any security in place – whether that is a security guard at the door or EAS antennas complemented with anti-theft security solutions. 
 
Retail Council of Canada conducted a Holiday Shopping Survey and “asked 2,504 Canadians from coast to coast about their intended behaviours around the upcoming holiday shopping season”.  According to the Retail Council of Canada, 74% of the average anticipated holiday spend will be in-store! The average anticipated 2018 Holiday Spend is $675 and according to the survey, 11% intend to spend more this year compared to last year!
 
As shown in image shown on the left these factors influence shoppers on retailer choice. Having holiday sales or promotions is the biggest contributing factor to get shoppers into your retail stores! Even on Boxing Day, 62% of the shopping will be done in-store! 
 
Retailers need to prepare to protect their profits and increase sales during this busy holiday season! Although it’s great news that many people will still shop in-store, it also creates opportunities for potential thieves to swipe and go. There are many ways retailers can protect their profits from theft and increase sales! By providing great customer service and having a presence throughout the store, it deters thieves from attempting to steal. 
 
Another proven strategy is to use security devices on high risk items in the store. Halo Metrics has an “End of the Year” sale that will help retailers save on costs and theft!
