Luxury Retail Security

Uphold Your Brand Value

Retail is details, we have taken some of the best ideas and practices from the military, fashion and luxury industry and applied those ideas into our luxury retail security. People often confuse luxury retail security with corporate or front of house security. We understand luxury retail although the ultimate goal is to prevent stock loss and reduce shrinkage. Retail shops will always be a target as the demands for luxury goods is always high. Having adequate retail security and loss prevention solutions in place is crucial.

Our founder started his security career at Bicester Village and House of Fraser. To us the customer experience is what makes all the difference, the moment the customer enters the store until they complete their visit. All our retail security guards or door supervisors are highly trained and play a vital part in ensuring that the customer always have the best shopping experience possible when they visit a luxury retail boutique or store. At Namib Security we believe that you only one get one chance to make a good “first impression” that is the culture and philosophy we strive from. Luxury means the full experience in the eyes of the customer.

Luxury retail is a key segment in the retail industry. More and more, offline luxury retailers are turning to security solutions to address certain challenges and difficulties they face. According to the British Retail Consortium’s (BRC) annual retail crime survey published in 2020, the direct cost of customer theft, which includes shoplifting, amounted to £1.9 billion in 2019-2020, which was an increase of 7% compared to the previous year.

Offline luxury retailers face challenges from several fronts. First and foremost is security.  As luxury retail stores continue to do well in business – in spite of the pandemic and inflation – they are also faced with various real and potential criminal activities.
