How can the store layout help prevent retail loss?
As they say: Opportunity makes the thief!
Poorly organized stores can make it easier for would-be thieves to make away with store items without being noticed. The store has to be organized in a way that every employee can keep an eye on shoppers.
How can you do that?
✓ Avoid clustered aisles;
✓ Make sure products are properly displayed and organized;
✓ Keep mirrors in strategic locations;
✓ (If possible) make displays short, so it is possible to see over them;
✓ Lock smaller items that are easy to steal on display cases, requiring customers to seek employee assistance for purchase;
✓ Keep smaller objects near the cashier;
Remember: In case you should walk around the store, make sure you don't hover around or seem aggressive.
