Advice for Small Businesses that close down over Xmas and the New Year

– Article provided by The Crime Prevention

A business that is closed during the Xmas and New Year period, especially one that is located on a remote commercial estate where other businesses might also close at the same time, will be vulnerable to criminal attack simply because the guardianship provided by its staff will be absent over a long period.

Not only that, but there will also be a heightened risk from power failures and bad weather conditions, simply because nobody will be there to spot the problems or deal with them in a timely fashion.
