Why should you install retail cabinets? Well, unless you own the building that you’re in, retail is one of the most expensive properties around. If you’re in a high end shopping center or a mall, rent is charged per square foot. While you may have a storeroom in the back, if it follows the usual pattern it is both packed from floor to ceiling, and it is not very big. Retail businesses have to balance having enough inventory on hand, using their storage space effectively, and not crowding their sales floor.
A custom storage cabinet for a retail business makes use of the available showroom space, and is able to increase storage space at the same time Since they can be built into displays, and have hidden doors, a salesperson or manager can access products easily and put them out for sale. And because they are hidden, they can also help a store in a surprising way
Storage Cabinets and Loss Prevention
There is an old adage: “Out of sight, out of mind.” The same holds true where loss prevention is concerned. Retail storage cabinets can help with this. Since a lot of products can be stored under a display, or be incorporated into the display case itself, any potential shoplifters would be vary obvious in trying to open the cabinets and pilfer any items, particularly if the cabinets are locked. And loss prevention is a big reason to get storage cabinets as well. Here are some facts about shoplifting from the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention:
More than $13 billion worth of goods are stolen from retailers each year. That’s more than $35 million per day.
There are approximately 27 million shoplifters (or 1 in 11 people) in our nation today. More than 10 million people have been caught shoplifting in the last five years.
Shoplifting affects more than the offender. It overburdens the police and the courts, adds to a store’s security expenses, costs consumers more for goods, costs communities lost dollars in sales taxes and hurts children and families.
Shoplifters steal from all types of stores including department stores, specialty shops, supermarkets, drug stores, discounters, music stores, convenience stores and thrift shops.
There is no profile of a typical shoplifter. Men and women shoplift about equally as often.Information and statistics provided by the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention(NASP) a nonprofit organization providing research-based shoplifting prevention initiatives including education, prevention, justice and rehabilitation programs.
