Retail

The wheels of commerce seem to turn on the nation’s retailers, and with good reason: they sell everything from books and clothing to auto parts and garden furniture. The risks for this industry are as wide-ranging as the list of items our country’s retailers sell: a customer could slip on an icy walkway in winter; electrical breakdown can halt the steady flow of customers through the doors; a delivery may result in an accident that will take lives and damage property.

At Hanover Risk Solutions, we’ve studied all these risks and brought our considerable resources to bear on the problems of you face.
