Stop Spending So Much on Convenience Store Insurance!
As a convenience store owner, you might think that you biggest exposure to loss is someone falling in your store or parking lot or theft or damage to your stock, inventory or building. Those are all valid concerns.
One thing that you may not have considered is employee theft. As a retail store owner in Anne Arundel County, shoplifting is a known cost of doing business, but only savvy business owner are concerned with employee theft. Suppose an employee takes $50 a week out of the cash register. Not a big deal, right? Well consider that they do this for a year, well now that is over $2.500 but lets consider that they do this for 5 years, now you are over $10,000 or 10 years you are over $25,000. Do you still think it is not a big deal?
As a convenience store operator, what could hurt even more are:
- Protection Gaps. This is where a portion of your operation is unprotected. This could cost you your store. Do you have glass coverage? What about theft coverage?
- Not having enough coverage. You purchase your stock and inventory over time, so many times store owners underestimate the cost to go buy it all at one time, and at the time of a loss find out that there is a portion of the claim that is underinsured.
- Spending Too Much on Insurance. This is a waste of your hard-earned dollars. Make sure that you are getting all of the discounts that are available.
