Staying Safe During The Holiday Season
This year, take a few precautions to enjoy a profitable and safe holiday season while ensuring maximum jewelry store security.
Holiday Inventory: holiday inventories are usually greater than normal inventories. Make sure your jewelers block coverage is sufficient.
Security System: check all alarm systems to ensure they are working properly.
False Alarm: respond to every alarm signal. It’s common for thieves to trigger alarms repeatedly to lure you into believing your security system is faulty. Visit our Jewelers Programs page and find out about our Guard Alarm Response Program.
Security Guard: consider hiring a security guard during your busiest season.
Code Word: have all employees know an innocent-sounding code word to say aloud in case of suspicious activity in the store. All other sales associates will be aware and able to assist.
New Vendors: be cautious of new vendors who want to make large purchases.
