It leaves you unable to merchandise freely, making your store less competitive as you increase margins to cover costs incurred through theft. All these problems are compounded as national statics show a 6.2% increase in retail shrinkage 2010-11 in the UK and 8.3% in Ireland (www.globalretailtheftbarometer.com)
