Approaching Christmas season signals an increase in robbery risks

As Newsagents move towards the busy Christmas and New Year season, the risk of robbery and theft increases dramatically. Organised gangs of shoplifters, scammers and thieves increase their activities, relying on the distractions that extra customer cover provides. Cash and cigarettes as well as high priced gift lines are high volume targets. Even the weather over December and January increases the risk to electronic equipment through power surges, black outs, brown outs, and re-connections.
