Sometimes going ‘old school’ is all you can afford to do

I recently found myself working for a new company and with my change in employment came a whole new store.  The problem is the store is practically archaic in the realm of anti-theft devices.  There are a handful of still cameras all aimed at the cash wraps with the rest of the store being covered by ‘dummy’ units and the merchandise is ‘secured’ using old style ‘gator tags’ that must be two decades old at least.  What’s more the store sales floor is just short of seventy-five THOUSAND square feet of open space.  The first week there I just tried to wrap my head around how to prevent retail theft in such conditions. 

Without much of a budget but with a lot of improvising I devised a solution.  There is a fifteen foot wall that separates the front of the store with a large space in the back now used for storage.  Taking a twelve foot ladder and setting it against said wall I can see the entire store over the wall itself.  Over the next two weeks I secured and improved upon my ‘perch’ turning it into a full-fledged LP command center that has already produced results.  It may not be pretty, or very modern, but it works for the time being.

Sometimes if you want to prevent retail theft you just have to rehash old ideas if nothing else is available.
