With Covid-19 still prevalent, grocery stores throughout Canada have continued to ramp up their security for the safety of their customers, business, and the community. Utilizing skilled grocery store security offers many benefits such as providing high-class customer service and quality support to deal with unwanted circumstances. Read on to find out more.
Grocery Store Security Benefit #1 - Crowd Control
Safe social distancing means only a certain amount of customers are allowed in a grocery store at one time, and they must remain 6 ft apart. This can create lineups outside the store and within the store. Hiring a security guard can mean an extra set of eyes to regulate and enforce safety protocols so that your employees can focus on their job; serving the customers.
Our security guards are trained to ensure the safety of the communities they serve. In a professional manner, they will take care of loitering on the premises, or general disturbances.
Grocery Store Security Benefit #2 - Apprehend Shoplifters and Theft Prevention
Shoplifting is a major problem for retailers, especially grocery stores. Product tags and alarm systems, can not typically be used on food products. Oftentimes the visual presence of a security guard in a tactical vest and proper PPE gear is enough to deter theft. Our security guards are highly trained in spotting, stopping, and anticipating shoplifters. If a store is experiencing overnight break-ins, patrol guards can also be instrumental in stopping these instances of theft. On-site security guards can drastically reduce loss and will help to set a precedent of no-tolerance when it comes to shoplifting. Blackbird Security effectively prevents theft attempts, attends to safety hazards, threats, and emergencies on the site, and sends incident reports to the client to keep them in the loop.
Grocery Store Security Benefit #3 - Elevate Professionalism
Blackbird Security guards provide excellent service by greeting customers at the door and offering them hand sanitizer and sanitized carts. Security teams also provide a safe and sound environment by removing any unwanted people, such as intoxicated or banned individuals. Grocery store security can make customers feel welcome and by creating an overall positive and professional experience. A great way to utilize security guards for your grocery store is to station them at your front doors. Our security guards can welcome all the customers with a big smile on their face and a friendly reminder to follow the arrows on the floor and maintain a safe, 6 ft distance.
