Barbicide Disinfecting Jar
Jimmy, the town barber, was robbed. His business was completely ransacked, with everything damaged or stolen. Jimmy was going to have to get started right away replacing everything, including his Barbicide Disinfecting jars.
Then his buddy, Joe, shows up. Joe's alright, but sometimes he comes off a little condescending.
Listen, Jimmy. I know you're new to this whole 'business owner' thing, but let me tell you, break-ins happen to the best of us. So, let me give you a few pointers to prevent it from happening to you again.
First things first, you need to invest in some security cameras. It'll help deter those thieves and also provide evidence if something does happen. Trust me on this one.
Next, you need to get yourself a good alarm system. I mean, you can't rely on the police to just magically show up, can you?
And let's not forget about those locks and windows. Make sure they're all secured properly, otherwise it's just an open invitation for those crooks.
Also, don't be so obvious with your valuables, keep them out of sight. You don't want to make it too easy for them, do you?
As for the lights, it's a personal preference really. Some people prefer to leave them on as a deterrent, others prefer to keep them off to avoid drawing attention. But, it's your call.
And let's not forget about the window coverings, you don't want to give those thieves a free show, do you?
And don't be shy to ask your neighbors to keep an eye on your shop when you're not there.
Lastly, make sure your insurance policy covers the cost of stolen items, so you can be reimbursed for the cost of replacing them.
I mean, it's not rocket science Jimmy, but I know it can be overwhelming. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be fine.
Thanks, Joe. I know you mean well.
