The northeast Oxfordshire town Bicester has a strong retail presence despite its relatively small size. While the 2011 census recorded the town and civil parish as having a population of just 32,642, the area has major retail facilities including Bicester Village shopping centre and Bicester Avenue Home and Garden Centre. If you run a retail business in Bicester, here are good reasons to utilise our retail security services, which include patrolling, delivery checks, and staff/vehicle searches.
Examples of Bicester's retail prowess
Bicester, the history of which can be traced back to the Saxon period, today has many plus points for both residents and visitors. These advantages include the fascinating historical architecture, among it St Edburg's medieval church and, in what used to be the Priory Precinct, two houses which were made from reused medieval material and date from the aftermath of the Dissolution.
The town's evident history extends to its shopping streets - including Market Square and Sheep Street, where there are various local shops and national outlets. Sheep Street is pedestrianised, but nearby car parks let many people easily stay in the area for a pleasant shopping experience.
An especially exciting modern retail development has been Pioneer Square, where there is a Sainsbury's supermarket alongside smaller shops and restaurants. Another jewel in Bicester's retail crown is Bicester Village shopping centre, which offers designer clothing and luxury goods stores on the town's outskirts. Meanwhile, Bicester Avenue Home and Garden Centre, with stores including Hobbycraft, Cotswold Outdoor and Lakeland, is among the UK's largest garden centres.
What retail security services can we provide?
However, it is vital for Bicester retail businesses to do what they can to safeguard their security. Should a particular shop suffer a security breach, it could lead to not only loss that the breaching party has been directly responsible for, but also negative publicity for that store. This, in turn, could result in more people avoiding the shop; this scenario could obviously hit the firm's financial success.
Fortunately, here at All Time Security, we can provide a broad array of retail security services that can help prevent any such breach arising in the first place. No matter what kind of Bicester retail outlet you run, we can supply trained security guards and store detectives for it. We are an SIA Approved contractor and comply with the security guarding British Standard BS7499:2013.
These guards and detectives are skilled in customer care and can handle loss prevention, conflict management and civil recovery. We can help to secure individual stores, distribution depots and even shopping centre complexes. The services that we offer for retail security in Bicester include an information service, searches of staff and vehicles, uninformed in-store security staff, control and checks of deliveries, and patrolling. We can also lock and unlock shopping centres and look after the security of these facilities even outside the opening hours.
We also offer security services for Bicester businesses other than those in the retail sector. Click here to head to this site's homepage and learn more.
