VIDEO: Retail Tips on Robbery Prevention

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Convenience Store News for the Single Store Owner, in cooperation with CBC Learning Center, makes content from CBC's C Square website available to our readers.

C Square, accessible at, is a website specially developed for the advancement of convenience store owners. Part of C Square's offering is professionally produced videos spotlighting critical retail tips. In this new video, Terry Lambert, an instructor for the CBC Learning Center and a convenience store owner himself, discusses how retailers can minimize the risk of robbery.

For c-stores, the threat of robbery is always present given that it's a cash-heavy business and in most neighborhoods, stores are open 24 hours a day, providing an easy target, Lambert said.

To reduce the risk, he suggests retailers implement strict cash handling procedures; limit how much money is in their registers; make cash movements from register to safe or from store to bank quick, discreet and random; keep the property well lit; and install video surveillance and alarm equipment.
