We have found the team at GCS to be very professional, making installations on time and without problems. With their specialist knowledge of Garden Centre security and loss prevention, GCS designed our Security Tagging System Policy and provided a range of security tags best suited to the products we need to protect.

QD Group, owners of Cherry Lane Garden Centres, QD Stores and Thing-Me-Bobs are an independently owned chain of discount retail outlets. Operating on a low margin model, it is critical costs are closely managed and losses through customer theft are kept to a minimum.
“In light of the upward trend in shoplifting, we felt it timely to give our existing shop security measures a boost and improve staff awareness of this important issue.
We engaged GCS (GB) Limited to conduct a full security audit of our business and provide their observations and recommendations to areas where some gains could be made. This included members of the GCS team acting as thieves and stealing from our garden centre, in order to be able to identify our weaknesses and provide clear guidance to plugging any gaps in our security.
As part of the implementation of our revised security measures, GCS conducted bespoke in house loss prevention training for over 80 of our staff working in customer facing roles, such as merchandising and checkouts.
Throughout the entire process, we found GCS to be professional, engaging and a font of good advice and ideas. GCS continually demonstrated a genuine interest to help identify low cost solutions to security weaknesses that were picked up during the audit process.
I would be pleased to recommend GCS to other businesses.”
“We found GCS to be very helpful and with their knowledge of the retailers we wished to supply source protected products to, coupled with their technical knowhow, we were able to quickly establish how to proceed with the most cost effective and workable source protection solution.
Working with GCS helped us to avoid making costly mistakes and speeded our project along. I would highly recommend working with GCS.”
