According to a report compiled by Retail Economics, the retail industry turned over a total of £394 billion worth of sales in 2019, contributing to 5% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Employing 2.4 billion people and with over 300,000 retail outlets in the UK, it’s an industry that is very much in demand. Whether it’s shopping on the high street, or online, British consumers certainly love to spend.
Whilst the Coronavirus pandemic has meant non-essential retailers have had to temporarily close their doors, the reopening of many means the high street has returned, but not quite as we know it. Social distancing and one-way systems are a challenge high-street retailers will face for the foreseeable future, whilst online retailers will face their own challenges as demand for goods soars.
From out-of-hours deliveries to protecting premises holding a substantial amount of stock, the security needs of retailers should not go overlooked. Changes to routine or busy periods can mean that criminals are more likely to take advantage, so finding a security services provider to work with is an important step towards returning to some sort of normal.
