Customer Theft

Shrinkage in Garden Centres is estimated at

3% - 5% of total retail turnover. Or in other words £30,000 - £50,000 per million pounds turnoved over.


Compared to high street retailers, Garden Centres are soft targets for thieves. When you consider the sheer number of customers, broad range of high value products, premises size and limited numbers of staff, it is easy to see why Garden Centres can be soft targets for thieves.
