Displaysense Equip Retailers In Their Fight Back Against Shop Lifters

Displaysense has reported a large rise in demand for its security related products as retailers seek security equipment and alternative preventative methods that can be introduced to aid in the fight on crime.


In better times, retailers would be happy to see products ‘flying off the shelves’. However, the recession has lead to an increase in the reported cases of shop lifting, which is costing the economy billions of pounds a year.

In order to stop shop lifters in their tracks, retailers are turning to companies such as Displaysense, for security equipment and alternative preventative methods that can be introduced to aid in the fight on crime.

The Hertfordshire company, which sells a variety of shop display equipment through to lockable security display cabinets has reported a 46% increase in the demand for security related products over the past year, emphasizing the changing demands on retailers.

After receiving numerous requests f r o m customer, Displaysense has recently introduced a new range of security equipment including safes, locks and security mirrors that should help act as a deterrent in the nations’ stores against would be thieves.

Steve Whittle the spokesperson at Displaysense commented on this worrying trend by saying, “The demand for security related items has really shot through the roof, with a large proportion of these products being purchased by retailers who had previously never had to worry about protecting their wares. We are looking to source further security products based on the types of customer enquiries we have had, but the worrying thing is that a lot of people are looking to go far beyond the solutions we currently supply”.

Steve went on further to say, “We have even seen an increase in demand for our range of sign holders and snap frames f r o m the likes of supermarkets, who have had an equally tough time f r o m shop lifters as of late with increasing petty theft, and are presumably having to warn customers about their policies on theft”.

Not only have retailers had to contend with the obvious drop in sales associated with a recession, but are now having to invest extra into security, reducing their profit margins even more – a worry for any store manager and company director during these critical times.

It is hoped that with these extra security measures in place, the threat of shop lifting could decrease dramatically and allow retailers to concentrate more on stock shifting rather than shop lifting.

About Displaysense



Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays. Displaysense has a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing and has been able to develop an ever growing standard range of over 5,000 displays for retail, exhibitions, office and home.

New Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour By Clinique

Clinique is launching a new innovation in lip gloss to help protect and defend delicate lips. Bursting with antioxidant ingredients, Clinique introduces new Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour, a healthy dose of luscious colour in six juicy shades, rich in moisture and shine, like an antioxidant fruit smoothie for the lips.

Whilst a decadent blend of rich butters such as Shea Butter provide comfort, moisture and soothing benefits and help put the smooth in to Lip Smoothie.

To finish the fresh, healthy look High Impact Curling Mascara can be applied, along with a Quick Blush to cheeks for a naturally blushed look.

Ernest Jones Celebrates Tennis and Summer

Despite the unpredictability of the weather and regardless of sporting performances, Brits are opting for year-round strawberries on and off centre court. To show its support, Ernest Jones is offering customers the chance to get behind the British efforts at Wimbledon with price reductions on selected tennis bracelets, and Chamilia beads and charms with summer and tennis related themes.


Beads and charms are the ideal summer jewellery to wear at Wimbledon as they perfectly match the festival-like atmosphere of this prestigious tournament. One of the best selling charms of the summer is the Chamilia strawberry. Since its recent introduction to Ernest Jones, the jewellery chain has received a volley of demand and has had to order in extra punnets.

Chamilia jewellery was founded in 2002 by Killian Rieder and Jeff Julkowski and is based on the concept of putting design into the hands of the customer. Killian, a former designer with fashion icon Polo, wanted Chamilia to be personalised to allow women to change and customise their jewellery to fit their mood, moment or occasion, like a chameleon that changes to suit its environment.

The Chamilia collection at Ernest Jones consists of bracelets and necklaces in both silver and gold, with a huge selection of beads and charms that can be used to create personalised jewellery to suit each customer. Also in silver and gold and set with colourful crystals, gems and diamonds, the bead collection features a range of Disney characters and fun, fashionable designs allowing customers to create their own personalised jewellery.

The Chamilia tennis bracelet is another great piece of jewellery for the summer season. Made famous in 1987 by super-glamorous tennis star Chris Evert, the tennis bracelet is a string of dazzling diamonds worn around the wrist. This type of bracelet was previously known as an in-line bracelet because it is, essentially, a line of diamonds around the wrist. During a match in the 1987 US Open, Chris Evert’s bracelet broke, scattering diamonds around the court. This accident bought her time to recover her breath and eventually go on to win the match. Since then bracelets consisting of a string of diamonds have been known as tennis bracelets.

Ernest Jones features a wide range of tennis bracelets in 9ct and 18ct white and yellow gold.

Wyevale Voted Best Garden Centre By The BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine

The Wyevale Group is celebrating after being voted the ‘Best Nursery or Garden Centre’ in an online poll by the BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine.

The voting for the awards was open to members of the public and received thousands of nominations through the BBC Gardeners’ World website, making them a true reflection of people’s opinions. It is therefore particularly rewarding for the Wyevale garden centre group to be given the coveted title of ‘Best Nursery or Garden Centre’ as part of the inaugural Gardeners’ World Magazine awards.

The BBC launched their 2009 awards in March by inviting readers of the Gardeners’ World Magazine and users of the website to vote on categories including most loved and most hated plants and vegetables, the most common garden pest, the gadget they couldn’t live without, the best garden centre and best online garden centre/mail order supplier. The voting was opened to the public for a 3 month period in an effort to find out exactly what people liked and didn’t like about life in the garden. Overall more than 7,900 gardeners voted across a series of categories.

The Wyevale Group achieved success after being rated the best nursery on 5 separate indicators which covered: value for money, service, choice, quality and overall performance.

Nicholas Marshall, Chief Executive of Wyevale, said: “We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the title of Best Garden Centre in the Gardeners’ World Magazine’s online poll. It is a testament to how hard the staff work at all 122 garden centres in the group.

“We would like to thank all the garden centre teams and staff at Head Office for their hard work and commitment in helping us to win this top accolade.”

About The Gardening Club
Wyevale Garden Centres originated as a local nursery in Hereford in the 1930’s, when plants were sold bare-root by mail order only during the dormant season. Today, gardening is a wide ranging activity from real enthusiasts who grow specialist plants from seed to families for whom the garden is an outdoor room to decorate and furnish in their own style

The Gardening Club is a family of garden centres. The group stocks a wide range plants, tools, garden furniture, BBQs and machinery to suit every style of gardening. With over 120 garden centres nationwide and a website stocking over 2,000 gardening products there is something for every gardeners taste.
