Holiday Security in Tampa
ESS Global Corp provides holiday security in Tampa because for business owners, the holiday season brings security concerns for every business. The significant increase in shoppers does wonders for your bottom line and generates brand awareness that can last into the new year. But there is a dark backside to the holidays, because with these benefits comes the need to hire additional staff members as well as additional security.
“The holidays are an attractive time for criminal activities,” according to Theo Billiris at ESS Global. “Thieves take full advantage of busy stores and distracted employees to steal. Retailers need to know that this is the time of year where they face a much bigger threat from professional and semi-professional thieves. The holiday shopping season is when organized retail crime flourishes. Worse, this time of year, the average amount stolen per incident, in much higher than ‘normal’ loss throughout the year.”

The Holiday Season is when your store is the busiest, the your store associates are the most distracted, your fitting rooms are the most unorganized, the crowd is the more agitated and the time of year police are the busiest. All of this amounts to one of the most hectic and dangerous environments a store owner will ever see, at least until next year.
This holiday season as your store begins to fill up, dishonest shoppers and untrustworthy seasonal employees will see it as a more appealing place to take what they’d like without stopping to pay the bill. According to reports by Business News Daily, U.S. retailers are expected to lose over $9 billion dollars from crime this holiday season, mostly from employee theft and shoplifting.
U.S. retailers will lose $4.7 billion through employee theft through October to December, $3.8 billion though shoplifting and $400 million through vendor and distribution, according to a new study by the Center for Retail Research, far surpassing any other quarter. The majority of the losses occur from Thanksgiving to the end of the year.
The losses will represent a 4 percent increase over the same period last year.
