Stay Safe in Stores This Holiday – Secure Shopping Tips from Security Specialists

Well, it’s crunch time once again. That time of the year when we procrastinators hit the malls in search of last-minute holiday treasures. To help you stay safe as you embark on your journey, here are ten secure shopping tips to remember before heading out to the stores:

  1. If shopping at night, park in a well-lit parking lot.
  2. If you feel uncomfortable walking to your car alone after finishing shopping, ask to have security accompany you.
  3. Always be aware of your surroundings. Thieves can come from anywhere and will try just about anything to get close to you, so they can get what you have.
  4.  Never put your purse in the trunk before entering a store. It doesn’t work, and thieves watch for you to do this in parking lots. It’s better to take the purse with you and carry it safely.
  5.  Never carry large amounts of cash. If you must, put it in your front pocket and try not to display it when paying for things at the register.
  6. Never leave gifts or anything of value visible inside your vehicle.
  7. Never leave your purse in your shopping cart. It only takes a split second for a thief to walk away with your purse and identity.
  8. Always keep your purse closed. Zip it, snap it, or buckle it shut. If you leave it open a thief could easily reach in and remove your wallet. You won’t even know it’s gone until it is too late.
  9. Walk with confidence. If you appear to be an easy target you probably will be.
  10. Take friends with you and stay in groups.
