“As a member of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts, I reached out to them seeking guidance on some Loss Prevention challenges my business was experiencing. They referred me to New England Loss Prevention Advisory Group. I scheduled a consultation and an eventual on-site visit. That consultation was very insightful and valuable. With their insights and advice we were able to make operational, security and merchandising changes that saved us money. We also used the advice and guidance to develop our own Loss Prevention Awareness training program.
I would recommend any business owner to contact NELPAG. They provided professional, insightful guidance that was easy to implement into my business.”
