Just because it’s a holiday doesn’t mean people stop stealing

Many of you, like me, probably find yourselves working on one holiday or another.  As I write this I have just finished a stint at my store on the Fourth of July.  I recall a time in history when most stores kept their doors closed out of respect for the nation’s birthday but such traditions are long gone replaced by the need to create sales.  The thing is I spent more time today dealing with shoplifters than actual customers. 

Don’t for a second fool yourselves into thinking that just because you are working on a holiday that thieves are taking the day off.  In fact they are counting on such revelry-induced laxity to better their chances of bypassing your store’s anti-theft devices and circumventing anti-shoplifting measures.  If you want to prevent retail theft on the holidays all you need to do is remain vigilant and treat the day as you would any ‘normal’ day because aside from some special sales that’s what the company is likely treating the holiday as anyway; just another ‘normal’ day.

On the plus side, customer traffic is considerably lower on holidays meaning that you can pay extra attention to each person walking into your store.
