Please Leave Empty Cash Drawers Open Overnight

Because the drawer was closed, the thief no doubt hoped for a huge payoff.

Small businesses make up 97 per cent of all businesses in New Zealand and in recent times have been the subject of many attacks and robberies. A lot of the problem is most places won’t keep more than one or two hundred dollars in the register but about a thousand dollars for a front plate glass window and some Touch Screen POS Systems can be worth in excess of 10 thousand dollars. So it’s worth leaving the cash drawers empty and open when you close up, allowing criminals to easily see there’s nothing to take and avoiding the costly task of needlessly replacing POS equipment. Potential criminals will look through the windows to see where the cash registers are, and see how easy it is to get to them.
