Foolproof tips to stop shoplifters in their tracks

According to the Australian Retailers’ Association theft costs the retail sector more than $7.5 billion each year.

Shoplifting is a major problem for Aussie retailers.

Displaying merchandise that attracts customers and encourages them to buy is an excellent strategy to increase sales, but there’s a risk involved.

On top of the obvious cost of losing the stolen item, if your merchandise is stolen, then you have an incomplete display. The potential for new sales decreases because your visual merchandising isn’t as enticing making it less likely to convince customers to make a purchase.

Anti-theft fixing keep your displays safe

Using anti-theft products that allow you to display your merchandise securely openly is a good strategy.

Uni-Set; the ultimate security solution
