GCA says ShopKind

Greeting card industry backs campaign that tackles shoplifting and attacks on retail staff

 

The GCA has reinforced its support of retailers over the ongoing issue of shoplifting and attacks on store staff.

“Shoplifting is something that comes up often from GCA discussions with retail members,” association ceo Amanda Fergusson told PG Buzz. “We do and will continue to raise it with mps on their behalf.

“It also comes up frequently at our Indie Retail Confederation meetings where current small business minister Kevin Hollinrake attends quarterly.”

The GCA also supports the ShopKind campaign from the National Business Crime Centre, which is backed by the Home Office and supported by major High Street retailers along with independent store owners, and the Union Of Shop, Distributive & Allied Workers (USDAW).

The campaign aims to tackle violence and abuse against shopworkers by asking people to ShopKind in store, encouraging positive behaviours in store, and acknowledging retail staff’s importance role in the community.

Everyone in the retail sector is encouraged to download the free material available from the ShopKind webpage on the NBCC site, and use the posters and social media artwork online and instore, and there are also videos available, as can be seen below.
