Why is Retail Security Important?
Within Canada’s retail sector, tight budgets and slim margins mean retail loss prevention is often the key to business success. Theft is a problem that plagues businesses of all shapes and sizes, from grocery stores and liquor stores, to clothing stores, pharmacies and electronics outlets. In fact, Canadian retailers lose over $8 billion a year to shoplifters.
It’s frustrating seeing these preventable losses occurring each year. Many store managers don’t see the value in investing in professional security services, choosing instead to roll the dice, take their chances, and save a modest sum from their operating costs.

Customer Service Approach
We founded Blackbird Security because we saw a gap in the market for a security company that offered more than just security services. In today’s world, security guards need to offer a welcoming and flexible presence, with our focus on dedicated customer service training helping to achieve this goal.
We understand it’s crucial to maintain the ambience and pleasant shopping environment. Not only will our guards provide world class retail security, they’re also a welcoming, customer-service oriented presence in your space.
From our Partners
I am the commercial operations manager at Dells Shopping Centre in Surrey, BC. We have been using Blackbird Security as our security vendor the past two years to provide us with 24/7 uniform security coverage. Their guards are professional, reliable and have excellent customer service. They deal with any incidents, loitering or attempted drug use on property immediately, tactfully and effectively. They have done outreach and formed good direct relationships with of our tenants. I would recommend this company for any malls or shopping centres looking for professional security guards.Operations Manager, Bosa Commercial
We have been using BlackbirdSecurity undercover LPOs for the past 6 years at this location with great results. We are a busy Downtown Vancouver store with a lot of theft and since switching to Blackbird we have seen a major reduction in our inventory loss. Their guards are highly trained and care a lot. The management team is very hands on and makes me feel like I'm their most important client!Store Owner/Operator of Shoppers Drug Mart 2277 in Vancouver
Amazing company. They fulfilled all of my company's security needs, diminished my losses, and look crisp at the same time. Dealing with this company has always been carried out professionally and thoroughly. On the spot flex changes are no problem, they accommodate fast. Need quick security to protect employees in a pinch? They accommodate fast.Reports are thorough and timely. Anything unusual is reported prior to the formal report, to save you from waiting.
Great experience!! The team not only listens to feedback, they work with you and the intricacies of your business to get the results you want. They were able to decrease the loss due to theft by a significant amount both quickly and efficiently. They have allowed me time to grow my business and not worrying about preventable theft.
We just recently had Blackbird Security hired for our Grocery Store. All the staff have been very professional and knowledgeable. Their presence has been felt both as a deterrent and an extra layer of comfort for our staff. Glenn B. (Director in the Interior) is professional, accommodating and experienced. Glenn takes the time to work with his clients and gets the results they require.
I work at a small retail store in Edmonton and my store uses Blackbird Security for undercover loss prevention and door guards, hands down the best security company out there. All my employees feel safe around these people and know we’re in good hands. All the staff for blackbird I’ve came across are extremely nice and professional as well.
We have this company working at my workplace. The supervisors (mainly Brett, Glenn and Moe) are very responsive and supportive. My favourite guards are Arunjit and Lovepreet. It’s great knowing that I don’t have to worry about doing my job and also watching out for safety and theft. We are lucky enough to have Arunjit at our store frequently and he takes care of us very well! He is adaptable and follows social distancing and even helps us keep our baskets and carts sanitized. He is an asset to the company!
