If you have visited us recently, you may have noticed three new members of the Poplars Team. To be honest, they don’t say much and their personalities are a bit ‘flat’ but they’re here to do a job and they’re doing it very well so far! Sadly, we have seen a rise in people thinking it’s ok to come in and take things without paying for them so our 3 cardboard cops are a visual reminder that shoplifters will be prosecuted. We have had a brand-new CCTV system installed recently which is there for the safety & protection of both our staff and customers. It has automatic number plate and facial recognition and we also have a CCTV screen at the exit so we can get a fantastic view of anyone trying to leave the premises with goods they haven’t paid for! Hopefully with all these deterrents in place, our till staff can put all their time into serving our paying customers and less time on dealing with those who don’t!!
