Retail theft cost the Australian economy $2.4 billion dollars.
Lingerie, fashion accessories, high value electronics and even satellite navigation devices are favoured by retail thieves, reported Euromonitor International in the Global Retail Theft Barometer for 2012-13. Thieves are helping themselves to huge amounts of goods, with an estimated $2.4 billion worth of items stolen in Australia in 2012.
A big part of this theft happens during the Boxing Day Stocktake sales, where people run crazily through shops, grabbing as much stock as they can. It can be hugely difficult to maintain good security during this busy time – especially if you are relying on staff members rather than a specialist security team.
With hundreds of people in your retail store or shopping centre, all intent on grabbing themselves a bargain, can you afford not to hire security?
