FAQ

Do Retail businesses need insurance?

What are some notable risks facing Retail businesses?

  • General Liability: Premises liability is high due to the number of visitors to the store.

Stock may be combustible and can be susceptible to damage by fire, smoke, and water.  As a result of property damage, business interruption can be high depending on the season.

  • Employee Injury: Retail businesses need to protect themselves for the costs associated with employee injury due to heavy lifting, operation of specialized equipment, and repetitive motion.  It is important to train employees on best practices with regards to workplace safety
