Also, I thought that the extra security will just be an additional expense that I couldn't afford to have each month. Some of the merchandise I sold, such as the shoes and handbags, were expensive for the average person. In short, they were worth protecting, but I didn't realize this soon enough. The money I lost from the theft was more than what I would've spent in an entire year of CCTV coverage. And I didn't even lose majority of my clothing products.
Most of the money lost came from the safe. This money was scheduled to be deposited the morning following the break in.
