It’s after hours and you have armed your alarm for the evening. Later you receive a system notification from your burglar alarm company, how would you respond?
Would you brush it off as a false alarm? Or neglect to check on the business? If so, you’ll want to change your response due to the recent rash of power-cutting burglaries. Here are six tips Jewelers Mutual suggests to make sure your store remains secure in the wake of these attacks.
Today’s consumers are not as interested in what you’re selling, but how you can help them find exactly what they’re looking for. Many expect their relationship with their jeweler to be more than just the value of their purchase.
With the busiest time of year upon us, it’s easy to overlook what might be the most important part of the sale — the customer experience.
After a busy holiday season, are you preparing for a much-needed vacation?
Be aware that you may not be the only one looking forward to the break you'll be taking from your business.
Criminals welcome the buffer provided by an extended weekend or holiday. The store’s extra closed-to-business period gives criminals more time in which to use their tools and torches to defeat the safe. It can also allow more time for the criminals’ trail to grow cold before the jeweler and law enforcement become aware of the crime.
As a member of the jewelry industry, you have a responsibility to protect your business 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
However, with so much focus on your business, have you neglected the security of your home? With off-premises dollar losses rising according to the Jewelers Security Alliance, home security tips for jewelers should now be a staple in your security plan.
