I was having trouble with theft in my store.
I wasn’t sure who was to blame. Were my budtenders lifting the products off the shelves or customers? Where was the majority of my stock being taken from? I couldn’t seem to figure it out. I put up security cameras and found nothing. I then got desperate and hired a medical marijuana business consulting service. I figured if the medical cannabis consultant couldn’t find the perp, it just was meant to be. The cannabis consultant immediately told me my issue was the layout of the store. He pointed out that my shelving units were tall and opaque. They blocked my views of a lot of stock on the shelves. Also, I had cameras behind the cash register, but nothing by the front door. I also didn’t have any hidden cameras anywhere. The cannabis consultant also pointed out that there was a route to the side of the store that a person could easily sneak out without detection from the worker at the front register. The two of us move around my store. Everything was opened up and my shelving units were shortened and made of all glass. I then changed my camera placement. I had one behind the register, one in each corner, one by the door and also a few mounted up on the shelving units. I then sat back and waited. Nobody was stealing from me anymore. I still don’t know who the culprit was. I don’t care though, there is no more missing stock.
