    “Churchill Support Services have been awarded the security contract for our new £32M facility here at Newport.

    The Complex Stats On Security In The Retail Sector

    There’s no doubt all us come into contact with retailers at least once a week. Whether that’s in our weekly shop, buying presents ahead of a birthday, or simply picking up these forgotten few bits, it’s all a testament to the ubiquitous nature of the retail sector.  That ever-presence, however, is often to the detriment of businesses in that industry.

    The British Retail Consortium’s 2023 report found that the average cost of retail crime was a startling £1.04 billion a year, with more than 8 million instances of theft in the last year alone. While larger businesses will bear the brunt of those numbers, small businesses suffer equally, with the Association of Convenience Stores estimating that theft from small stores costs an average of £1,066.
