It doesn’t matter what season we are in, retail theft is unfortunately showing no signs of going away. This is why store owners in the capital should consider hiring adequate retail security London wide.
In a report by the British Retail Consortium (BRC) earlier this year, figures revealed that retail theft has reached a new high. The annual Retail Crime Survey suggests that although the amount of reported incidents has fallen by 4%, the average value of in store thefts has increased by 36%. This is estimated as costing £241 per incident, an increase of £64 on average, for each case of retail theft reported in 2014.
When looking at the overall picture of reported retail crime, the British Retail Consortium report also revealed that there was an astonishing three million offences committed against retailers in 2013-2014, in some cases violence played a part in the offence.
