  • Business interruption.
  • Buildings cover
  • Protection of stock.

There are also a number of optional extras we can add if required to ensure you have the right level of protection you need, tailored especially for you.

Business Insurance for Retail Outlets

Whatever your type of business, you need a retail insurance policy that adequately covers potential risks that you may face.

Your store needs enough products in stock to meet customer demand, so you will typically require cover for fire, flood, accidental damage, theft, and other insured losses. Public liability insurance is important in case a member of public is hurt as a result of your negligence, and employers liability insurance in the event that a member of staff is injured. Not forgetting your building may require cover too, and there’s business interruption to consider in case your shop has to be closed for a period of time, losing you valuable income.
